— With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson securing the lead role for the Brett Ratner-directed action film Hercules, and production kicking off in “early 2013,” it has been speculated that his WWE involvement in the weeks leading up to WrestleMania 29 may be affected. However, the word among WWE circles is that organization officials are not expecting his filming commitments to impact his dates.
WWE states, “Sheamus is hungry to reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship from Big Show’s colossal clutches at Survivor Series, but given Show’s formidable history, he’d be wise not to underestimate the giant a second time. Here are seven reminders of why Big Show won the “Big Gold Title” to begin with … and why he may still have it when all is said and done on Sunday.”
Feats listed are becoming the youngest WCW World Heavyweight Champion in history at 23-years-old, his 1999 WWE debut, becoming WWE Champion for the first time, capturing the ECW World Heavyweight Championship, successfully defending the Unified Tag Team Championship against R-Truth and John Morrison at WrestleMania XXVI, winning the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania XXVIII, and defeating Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship at Hell in a Cell.
