Earlier this year, Paul Wight (formerly the Big Show) had teased fans that he could be bringing back his Captain Insano gimmick. Speaking earlier this year, Paul Wight revealed the outfit for a Captain Insano appearance has been made, and “a lot” of prep work has gone into it.
“There’s already an outfit made, the whole nine yards. We’re doing a lot of prep work, and this will be my last hoorah so to speak.
“Let’s be honest – I don’t think this character is going to be a killer going out there trying to beat Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship. At this point, I think this character is just to have fun. We’ll see how it goes, but for me right now, this is just a chance to have fun with this character and be a bright spot on the show. We’ll see how I’m feeling, and we’ll see how everybody takes off with it.”
We will have to wait and see if Captain Insano finally makes his return.
