The Big Show Returns – Major Angle With Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Ryan Clark

At Sunday’s WWE No Way Out PPV there was an angle involving The Big Show and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. This was a work but appeared very real as Big Show took some very stiff shots. They wanted to make this look as real as possible and did a hell of a job in doing so. I expect this to lead to something between and two at ‘Mania and look for lots of media on it tomorrow. Here is a recap of what went down taken from our No Way Out report:

The Big Show’s music hits and he makes his way out to the ring. He shows off his newly trim body in a suit and says, “Guess who is back!” Big Show said he missed WWE and promises to become champion once again. He said it doesn’t matter if it is Raw, Smackdown or ECW. Show said a lot of people make promises, but he has already been champion of Raw, Smackdown and ECW. He said it is only a matter of time before he becomes champion again. Show talks about losing over 100 pounds and that he is now faster, meaner and ready to be back in the WWE. Show notices an injured Rey Mysterio at ringside and grabs him. He starts slapping his bad arm and then looks over at Floyd Mayweather Jr. asking if he wants to do some. Mayweather shakes his head as Big Show throws Mysterio back in the ring. Show teases giving Mysterio a chokeslam. Show lifts Mysterio up and Mayweather jumps into the ring. Mayweather gets in Show’s face and Mayweather’s team hit the ring to hold him back. Show takes off his jacket and Mayweather is let go. They stare each other down as Show smiles. Show pushes Mayweather away. Show then gets down on one knee mocking Mayweather. Mayweather then walks forward and punches Big Show a few times. Mayweather then takes off with his team over the guard railing into the crowd. Shane McMahon runs out and holds Big Show back. Big Show’s nose is busted open and he spits blood out. Show’s nose looks legit messed up as Shane calms him down. Show backs up and leaves up the ramp with Shane. He smiles at the crowd with his nose and mouth covered in blood. They show a few replays and Mayweather caught Big Show with some legit hooks. This was done incredibly well and came across great.
