Paul Wight compares AEW star Powerhouse Hobbs to Goldberg and Brock Lesnar

Powerhouse Hobbs has proved to be one of the most vicious giants on the roster. He is currently part of the Don Callis Family.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, the 52-year-old star stated Hobbs has the intensity of Brock Lesnar and Goldberg.

"This probably sounds super arrogant. I don’t think there’s been many people like me. But I think I see the same fire and intensity and ability to connect with the audience. [Powerhouse] Hobbs is a very powerful, explosive, intense individual. There’s been many guys like that that I’ve seen in our business, from Goldberg, who had that intensity, to Brock Lesnar, who had that intensity." he said.

In his latest appearance on AEW Dynamite of November, he teamed up with Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega, and Chris Jericho to defeat The Don Callis Family and Brian Cage in a street fight.
