Dralistico revealed last week that he had inked a new deal with AEW.
According to a report from Fightful Select, Dralistico’s new contract is a full-time deal with AEW.
Dralistico debuted for AEW in December 2022.
Additionally, the eight-man tag team match scheduled for the November 15th episode of AEW Dynamite will feature a sponsor.
The upcoming match will see Kenny Omega, Paul Wight, Chris Jericho, and Kota Ibushi face off against The Callis Family, aka Powerhouse Hobbs, Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita, and Will Ospreay.
On a recent edition of the “Battleground Podcast,” Paul Wight recalled playing the role of Captain Insano in The Waterboy, and reprising his role in a cameo on AEW Dynamite.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On auditioning for the role: “I just went crazy. I honestly didn’t even think I was going to get the part. I didn’t even try to get it, which is so weird to think. And then when I showed up to do it, … I read the script, did it in one take, and [they went], ‘That’s great! Thanks!’ I went, ‘I’m really good at this!’”
On being friends with Adam Sandler due to the role: “I would run into Adam Sandler at Super Bowl events here and there, and he would always be with his family. Adam used to introduce me to everyone, [and his mother] would hold my hand and she would [say], ‘This is Adam’s big friend, Paul. He’s a pro wrestler.’”
On reprising the role on AEW TV: “Let’s be honest — Paul Wight is kind of cool, but it’s not — it doesn’t have the ‘oomph’… I can do comic books. I could probably do an animated TV show. … [Tony Khan] just put that in my hand like, ‘Here you go, bud. Thanks for coming to AEW.’ … And now we’re having fun getting it together and figuring out what we’re going to do with it.”
