Kurt Angle is trying to talk Paul "Big Show" Wight into joining TNA. Should he end up going to TNA, he wouldn't be able to use the Big Show monicker because WWE owns it, nor the name The Giant because WWE also owns WCW's intellectual property. However, Wight is currently aligned with Hulk Hogan. Whatever Hogan ends up doing in the wrestling world, he wants to do it with him. On Bubba the Love Sponge's radio show, Hogan teased that he would be starting his own wrestling company and it would feature Big Show, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. Well actually, Hogan only mentioned Big Show's name, and Bubba brought up Nash and Hall's name. Hogan then said that Nash had better keep Hall under control.
In Hall's last public appearance, he told Nash he wanted to get together for one last run. However, Nash told Hall, "Scott, I've got no more last runs left in me, and you're in worse shape than me."
Back to Paul Wight, he would only consider going to TNA if Hogan doesn't get something going. Then again, he's getting some major non-wrestling offers, and he'd probably consider them before TNA.
Wight, who is now 35 years old, is currently training harder and is more focused than he's been in about ten years. He's lost about 50 pounds since his last appearance in WWE, which puts him at around 460 pounds.
