— The Big Show has posted a blog on the Huffington Post talking about his work with the Special Olympics. Show will be a WWE Goodwill Ambassador for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, which takes place next month, and has been serving as co-captain of the Special Olympics Unified Relay Across America. An excerpt of the blog is below:
Throughout my 20-year career in WWE, I’ve worked with an incredible group of athletes that travel the world, headline major events and have tens of thousands of fans cheer (and sometimes boo) them. Their charisma, athleticism, larger-than-life personalities and ability to connect with an audience is incredible. But as great as they are, none can compare to another group of athletes that I’ve been working with lately, whose boundless energy, passion and dedication to training cannot be matched. These athletes are the true superstars.
WWE has supported Special Olympics for decades. I recently got involved and was immediately drawn to and inspired by the Special Olympics athletes. Over the past two years, I have participated in the Opening Ceremonies for Special Olympics USA Games, attended the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games and made various appearances in support of local Special Olympics programs around the world. But no matter how much I could ever give, I get so much more in return from the athletes.
— TMZ caught up with Brooke Hogan and asked her about the Undertaker because…I don’t know, reasons. Brooke told the site that she used to be terrified of the Dead Man when she was a little girl because she thought that he got his name “Undertaker” because he would take people’s underwear.
She also says she loved Randy Savage, who she said would play Barbies with her. You can see the interview below.
