AEW star Paul Wight is undoubtedly no stranger to the ring. But as a newcomer to the commentary desk, the legend is a massive fan of Excalibur.

After a Hall of Fame-worthy career in WWE, Wight transitioned to All Elite Wrestling and became the voice of the AEW Dark: Elevation show. That said, he's open about how he doesn't believe he's at the same level as his fellow-announcers Jim Ross and Excalibur and is still learning the ropes.

In an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Wight stated that he runs a lot of things by Excalibur and that the latter is "brilliant."

"I always tease everybody on air that I'm going to get chewed up by Excalibur in the back because I run a lot of things by Excalibur. Because he's very brilliant. He's almost like a savant, the way he understands everything," Wight said. [3:44 - 3:57]

Wight even joked about how the moves of today have different names as compared to the past. Here's what the seven-foot-tall star added:

"I mean the kids nowadays, I've been doing this for decades. The kids have changed names to all the moves. To me it's something else. A twisting twilight or something. They changed the names to everything. I'm not the guy that Excalibur is. I try to find my own style and my own pace and help the talent in the ring. And I'm enjoying that with AEW." [3:58 - 4:22]
