QT Marshall is ready for a big showing at All Out.
QT Marshall is facing Paul Wight at AEW All Out 2021 in Wight‘s first AEW match since signing with the promotion. While he is looking forward to his first major singles match on a pay-per-view of this caliber, QT Marshall also says he knows his role on Sunday, September 5 and he is happy to be that guy.
"Fans are entitled to their opinions. If you had Paul Wight and you're paying him whatever money you're paying him, would you put his first match on AEW: Dark, would you put in on Elevation? I don't know, I think he's the kind of competitor that you would put on a pay-per-view. This is his first match back, along with CM Punk, and this is a huge pay-per-view. And I'm not gonna tell myself, I know what my role is here. He needs a dance partner, and I'm happy to be that guy. And if fans are upset about that, how much more upset are they gonna be when I beat him or anybody? (Laughs) It is what it is," said QT Marshall to Sportskeeda.
Furthermore, Marshall would say that he was a fan of the former Big Show growing up and that he himself is getting the opportunity to live a dream this Sunday.
"Yeah, of course," said QT Marshall when asked if he was a fan of his opponent. "I mean growing up, anyone larger than life like Paul...he's got that 'it' factor that attracts the eye, especially as a young kid growing up and seeing how strong he was and what he could do at his size. But that all ended when he stuck his nose in my business. And it all leads to Sunday, so..."
He continued, "I mean there is, but there's a lot of pressure being in AEW to begin with", admits QT Marshall. "I've been here since the start of AEW, behind the scenes, and now I've transitioned in front of a camera, as a wrestler, which has always been my dream. So, I thrive under the pressure. I mean I always tell everyone at my school that I'm a red-light-kinda-guy. I don't like to practice certain things before the show. When the light comes on, that's when I like to go."
