Marko Stunt was looking forward to a potential AEW storyline with Paul Wight before his departure from the company.
Marko is one of the few AEW originals who recently departed from the company after their contracts had expired. Following his departure, Marko has wrestled back on the indie scene, frequently working for GCW, and has even talked about potentially starting his own wrestling promotion in Memphis.
When asked about any storyline ideas by Steve Fall in an interview for NBC Sports Boston's The Ten Count, Marko revealed that there was an idea pitched by Paul Wight to do an angle that almost came to light.
"There was one with Paul Wight, where me and him talked a bit about doing an angle starting on Dark to see if it gets over... Where I'm getting like beat week after week and bullied and he is on commentary and I'm getting bullied one week and finally he gets tired of it and he throws his headset down and comes down and saves me. This was him pitching it to me actually. Then we can form this best buddy duo and I can be your best friend and play it off so well."
Marko Stunt had continued talking about it potentially being a dream for him because of his admiration for Paul Wight.
"Paul Wight is legitimately my favorite wrestler of all time... I wanted to be that. I wanted to be 7 foot tall and step over the top rope and choke slam people."
Marko's contract had expired in May but he has not been seen on AEW television since earlier this year.
