Paul Wight has told the hilarious story of him having an unfortunate accident in the ring while facing Brock Lesnar in a match in South Africa.
The match in question took place on the 27th of February 2003, when Brock Lesnar would face Wight, then known as The Big Show, and Paul Heyman in a two-on-one handicap match.
Wight was discussing his career with Renee Paquette on her Oral Sessions podcast. The recent AEW signee opened up on one of his more embarrassing in-ring moments.
“He gave me an F-5 in South Africa, I think it was in Cape Town, and I’d had some bad food and this is back when I had the leather pants. Thank god. I had the leather for the singlet. I hit the mat and it just came out. He covered me ‘huh? Did you sh*t?’, I went ‘yeah’, ’hahaha you sh*t!’ you know what I mean. And then when I’m laying in the ring after the F-5, he kept stepping on my stomach like he’s trying to get more to come out. And I’m trying to sell his finish like ‘get the f*** away from me.’”
“So he had dumped Paul Heyman in the ring too, so the thing was that was the finish and then I would usually get up, come to, pull Paul out, throw Paul over my shoulder and carry Paul out. That was the end of the night for the heels, we were totally humiliated. But this night I was humiliated. So Paul is laying and was like ‘you gonna carry me to the back?’. I’m like ‘No’. ‘What do you mean, you’re not gonna carry me to the back?’. ‘I sh*t myself’. ‘What?’ ‘I sh*t my pants,’ ‘I can’t hear you what?’ ‘I sh*t myself!’ ‘Ohhh, okay, are you alright?’”
Paul Wight also revealed what became of the leather gear he wore that night:
“So meanwhile, I’m the guy out the back of the arena with a hose, hosing off my pants. I changed my gear after that. Those leather pants never left after the show. I think they were in a trash can at the arena as matter of fact.”
Paul Heyman, who shared the ring with Wight and Lesnar that night has taken to social media to confirm the events.
“I hereby confirm @PaulWight sh*t his pants taking the F5 from @BrockLesnar. I am also breaking the (18 year old) news that it wasn’t the worst smelling moment in his life. There was this one time he stunk up the entire State of Alaska with a 3 minute fart. I sh*t you not!”
