John Cena Match With Justin Bieber Revealed

‘Big Show’ Paul Wight shocked the world of pro wrestling when he signed with AEW last month. He is now a mainstay in AEW and has already performed his role as a commentator on AEW Dark: Elevation. He also has had feuds with John Cena and it seems he was close to having a huge match with him as well.



Paul Wight recently spoke on the latest episode of Talk Is Jericho, Paul Wight talked about some very interesting cancelled plans for SummerSlam. This included a match with Canadian pop sensation Justin Beiber. The plans were set to take place back in 2014.

”Years ago, I had worked out, for one of the SummerSlam’s in LA, with a very good friend who was working with Scooter Braun and Justin Bieber, and it was going to be John Cena, The Big Show and Justin Bieber vs. The Wyatt’s at SummerSlam,” Wight revealed. “Bieber was on board. He was excited. He wanted to work out with John and I. This was a really really big deal, and this is when that app first came out and all that other crap.

“And then one of the people that are making decisions said, ‘I just don’t see how Justin Bieber’s going to relate to our audience.’ It’s like, does anyone not see the amount of eyes Justin Bieber would bring to that match? I think WWE offered to help promote his album. You’re dealing with Scooter Braun. Scooter Braun’s all about cash, and they jacked Scooter around for about two weeks. And Scooter’s like, ‘Listen, it’s not going to happen. I got the kid a million dollars to watch a soccer game, and they’re flying down him down on a private jet.’”

Paul Wight will be staying in AEW for a long time as he signed a multi-year contract with the company. We will have to see how he will fare in AEW.
