Paul Wight Discusses His Role In New Netflix Series, Talks AEW

A current member of the All Elite Wrestling roster is appearing in another Netflix series, and he wants you to know about it.

Paul Wight recently spoke to Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone, where he discussed his role in the new season of Fast & Furious: Spy Racers Mexico. Wight is the voice of a bounty hunter charter on the show, and Paul spoke about how exited he is to play the role, explaining:

“I got super excited because it was a chance for me to get into doing more voice acting, which is just another tool I wanna put in my toolbox. I mean, let’s face it, I’m not gonna stay this incredibly handsome forever, but to be able to use my dynamic voice and to find a character like Palindrome, just right away when I was reading it, was so much fun. I mean this guy is super intense. He’s wide open all the time. I love the energy of Palindrome, and that’s one of the great things too, is they too from the Fast and Furious franchise and they brought that into an appropriate platform for younger viewers with the cool cars and the sense of family and a little bit of mystery.”

Paul continued to talk about his role in the series, and why being a part of the show is “really fun”. Wight stated:

“We’re encouraging younger people that they can do anything they want if they put their minds [to it] and you have this fun, incredible animation. It’s cutting edge, it’s better than anything out there. They really wanted to stretch the limits with this on what they could do visually with it. And then to have this fun character, for me, it’s just been an absolute joyride the entire time, and not just because it’s a show about fast cars, but it has been fun to do. It has been really fun to do and to actually tap into a different skill set.”

Paul, who joined AEW back in February, also took some time to talk about a few fellow members of his current roster. Wight named drop a few of his favorites in the ring, and said:

“The Young Bucks, of course, they’re amazing. There’s an incredible match coming up with PAC and Rey Fenix and the Young Bucks. It was just off the charts as far as some stuff that I’d never seen before. So with that kind of talent, and there’s some incredible talent in the women’s division as well, the opportunity is there. I think as AEW continues to grow and we have that strong platform on TNT, there’ll be a lot of great things in the future.”
