Cody Rhodes has posted on Instagram, “Yesterday was your 1st birthday! Liberty Iris Runnels – I have nothing but love and hope for your future. You’re validating Mom’s legacy and you don’t even know it…(Mom has been my moral compass and the unique person in my life who motivated me to be better at all facets of being a man)…and then you came along and changed everything for me. Every ounce of ambition I ever had increased tenfold, but the selfish nature of it if any has been completely minimized. Simply put, all I have and all I ever will have is for you. From plumber to princess, I will always love you.”
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 last year. 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 recently.
Paul Wight won multiple World Championships across his career in different pro wrestling promotions.
Wight, formerly known as The Big Show while in WWE, currently works for AEW. Wight revealed on “Submission Radio” how he felt about being a World Champion in professional wrestling.
“I’m not a guy that ever should’ve had a title like that, a Heavyweight title,” Wight stated. “… It’s the tough thing about being a champion is all that responsibility is on your head, and I never wanted that much responsibility. I never wanted to run the whole boat.
One of the things that I loved about AEW is there’s not a writing staff of 15, 20 writers,” Wight said. “When the talent has a promo, that promo comes from the talent, you know? So there’s not as much hands-on, molding, presentation, and packaging. A lot of AEW is very raw.”
