With Double or Nothing coming up in May it's time to start talking about who might be a part of the big event for AEW. In the last few months we have seen two legends from WWE jump ship to greener pastures in All Elite namely Christian Cage and Paul Wight. Recently, it seems like Christian might have his first feud ready to go with his former rival in Kazarian, but that leaves what happens first for Paul Wight. Now I know Paul is also a part of the broadcast team on Elevation so he doesn't need to be a featured part of the main show, but having him compete here and there should be something that is considered as I don't think Wight is here just to commentate at least not yet.
In my opinion, I think dream matches are something that should be worked on first and then move toward other matches that fans didn't know they wanted to see. I would think based on guessing that Paul Wight will likely have at least a year or maybe two before calling it a career as I believe going to AEW was more about going out on his terms instead of just prolonging his career. Looking at the AEW roster there are two names that jump out at me for the first people to dance with Paul Wight in AEW they are Lance Archer and Powerhouse Hobbs.
Outside of his feud a few months ago with Eddie Kingston things have been quite for the "Muderhawk Monster" and Jake Roberts. I have enjoyed the work Roberts has done since arriving in AEW giving him more of the spotlight would be a nice way to shake things up especially giving them a feud with Wight. As for Powerhouse Hobbs he has a position in Team Taz as the third string quarterback behind Starks and Brian Cage. Giving him the spotlight against Paul Wight would be a nice opportunity for Hobbs to prove himself and stick out from his stablemates. Also after planting seeds of descension among Team Taz when Cage said he respected Sting you could have Taz shift his focus from Cage to Hobbs as a way to continue the descension in the group.
Hobbs is one of those names that have been consistently featured on Dark or Elevation, but isn't always given the Dynamite spotlight. This means that there is plenty of footage of him dominating his opponents and could set up an interesting rivalry with Paul Wight and Brian Cage down the road. Hobbs is a future big man and has potential to be a great signing for AEW, but it's a bad time to test a wrestler to see what they should be working on. I think Hobbs would the right choice to give Wight the opportunity to win his first feud and establish himself in AEW as oppose to lose his first feud and rest on his name, winning his first feud would make him look better.
