Mire, allí es Big Show

While perusing the local Goodwill store for "retro" (aka almost free) furniture the other day, Dayna and I are leaving out the side door when we see some cameras and vans in the parking lot beside us. Then some Mexican kids start pointing and saying to each other "skala kala kala kala Big Show" (culturally insentive? yes. are those the exact words the kids were actually saying? probably).

Anyway, there he was shooting some sad B movie and it just shows how funny life can be. Things can be going pretty good...you're body-slamming Bobby the Brain Heenan for millions of dollars and adoring fans...then BAM, you find yourself in a pair of tapered dress pants in a dirty parking lot in the outskirts of Los Angeles.

Two pictures here. The first one is a stunning side profile of the Big Show. Now is it Big Show or THE Big Show? The most interesting picture though is the second one, which shows us just where Big Shows career is at this stage. In the scene is another large man dressed up as the ancient god of war Zeus who is standing on what appears to be a 1997 Toyota Corolla hatchback. How did things fall apart so quickly Paul? (That's his real name, I "Googled" it. Google. It's a website that matches up wrestler names with their real names).

  • What is this film the big show is in? When is it released? Big show looks huge in that picture, his stomach is so big. He must weigh well over 520 pounds, does no one else think that. He looks quite big with that shirt off, he has gained a lot of weight, he is so large. Big show is a huge specimin, he has a huge frame. Look at the size of him, he has a huge stomach and would be able to crush anyone with that big round stomach and his massive chunky arms and legs. Amazing!

  • I aree totally, he is enormous. Have you seen his stomach it is enormous. I wonder what sort of things he eats? He is a giant of a man. How much does he weigh? I think by how wide he is, he will be well over 35 stone!

  • The big show is a beast. When he joined the wwf he was 440lbs, he now weighs 563lbs. I saw a programme on him and it showed what he eats and he eats 10 cream doughnuts a day, 2 pizza's before a wrestling match. It is thougt he has a fast food addiction that has lead to his increasing waistband and huge weight gain. He admitted he can spend up to $40 on McDonalds. In 2004, in a match with Funaki he outweighed his opponent by 4 times. Big show won the match easily by sitting on him, the sheer weight on the man cracked one of funaki's ribs.
