Former WWE Superstar ‘Big Show’ Paul Wight shocked the entire pro wrestling world after revealing that he signed with AEW back on February 24th of 2021 before Revolution. It came as a shock as no one expected him to leave WWE for AEW, many considering him as a WWE-lifer. Jim Ross’ embarrassing Big Show botch was also leaked previously.
While doing a new interview with Metro UK, Wight revealed that the procedure kept him in a wheelchair for eleven weeks.
“Well, I spent 11 weeks in a wheelchair because I was waiting for them to build the implant for my knee because of my size. I had crushed all the bone in the knee, I was bleeding into my shin. So, I’ve got a good pain tolerance, but when I say I rode the tire down to the rim, that’s exactly what I did. But, luckily I still have all my ligaments in that knee, everything’s good there, it’s a nice, brand new titanium joint so it’s good for 35 years. So, I can parachute if I want to – not that I’ll ever jump out of an airplane, we all saw the movie Operation Dumbo drop, I don’t think that’s me, we’re good!”
