AEW’s Paul Wight spoke with the Wrestling With Freddie podcast from iHeart Media’s My Cultra Network. Wight discussed his career success, as well as having promo classes with Vince McMahon.
Paul Wight was asked how his success has not gone to his head after all this time:
“It doesn’t go to your head because, and I mean this in the kindest way possible, it never went to my head because it’s not real,” Wight laughed.
“It’s entertainment and I’m playing a character. All I ever wanted to do was whatever character I was, play it the best that I could.”
Wight talking about having promo classes with Vince McMahon:
“I remember taking Vince’s promo class,” Paul began. “I think the only promo that I ever did for Vince that he ever actually liked was the promo when I talked about why you shouldn’t let me come to your house if I’m your enemy.”
“Basically the premise was, if I’m your enemy, why you shouldn’t invite me to your house. I said, ‘I’m going to go to your master bathroom and I’m going to blow your bathroom up. I’m going to clog the toilet.’ Vince loves that sh*t humor, but it was a good story of how I’m going to get close to you, how I’m going to be your friend, and when you’re not looking, I’m going to go into your main bathroom and destroy it. That was the only promo I think I’ve ever done that he liked.”
