Paul Wight says Captain Insano is coming, brother!
While Paul Wight has built quite the legacy for himself as The Big Show, fans of Adam Sandler's movie "The Waterboy" may remember a different iconic wrestling character, Captain Insano. AEW actually secured the trademark rights to the character name in March 2021 and now, Paul Wight stated on the Rob Brown Show that it is only a matter of time before the character debuts in AEW.
"Tony Khan and I have some pretty fun stuff coming up in the future that he and I put together. We've actually secured the rights to Captain Insano, so we are going to break out Captain Insano, [he] will be coming out in the next couple of months. So that's why I've kind of toned down a little bit on the in-ring performing as well. We're kind of just doing the commentary while I'm getting wardrobe put together now for the outfits and Max Dunbar, who is an incredible comic book design guy, helped draw the outfit up for Captain Insano, we're getting that made now and then before you know it Captain Insano's gonna be running wild in AEW, dude," Wight said in a voice that mimicked Hulk Hogan. "I'm probably gonna rip Terry [Hulk Hogan] off but you know, he discovered me, hopefully, he'll give me a pass. As long as I don't drop too many copyrighted phrases, I think I'll be okay."
Max Dunbar has done work for Dungeons & Dragons campaigns and the upcoming Batman Beyond: Neo Year comic book.
Elsewhere in the interview, Paul mentioned wanting to wrestle in his home state of South Carolina. Read more here.
