AEW’s Paul Wight has said that he makes a better heel in wrestling as being a bad guy ‘suits his presence.’
Wight’s career has seen dozens of turns and was referenced during his first promo after joining AEW last year.
On The Rob Brown Show, Wight discussed his many heel/face turns saying:
“What suits my presence and size is when I’m [the] bad guy, when I’m a heel in our business. It’s an easier story to tell because we’ve all seen David and Goliath. We all understand it’s not the size of the dog in a fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. And all that other motivational stuff that sinks in with us on a deep psychological level. People understand overcoming big obstacles, whether it’s hurdles in our life and even through evolution, we’ve had to evolve and overcome hurdles.”
Wight hopes to wrestle at next week’s AEW tapings in his hometown of Colombia, South Carolina.
