The Big Show Reveals Original Plans For His Match Against Floyd Mayweather At WrestleMania 24


On the first episode of WWE Film Room, Michael Cole caught up with The Big Show to talk about his WrestleMania 24 match versus boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Here are the highlights (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc):

Their initial confrontation angle at No Way Out:

“I think this came about within a couple of weeks after that incident went down.” Big Show continued, “Vince [McMahon] got together with Mayweather’s crew and they put together a plan and this is something that Mayweather wanted to do.”

Original plans for the match:

“It’s funny,” The Big Show said, “the original thing was supposed to be a tag. It was supposed to be, I think, Batista and Rey against Floyd and myself. Rey got hurt. Batista got hurt. And then, it manifested into ‘Giant vs. Boxer’.”

His WrestleMania 24 entrance:

“That was amazing for me because I remember throwing up that chokeslam, that signal there, and the pyro went. I didn’t even know I was getting pyro, so when the pyro went off, like, I’m hyped now, pacing back and forth right now. I mean, I could pull the trunk off a Buick right now, I’m telling you. I’m excited.”

“I lost, which I don’t really count winning and losing.” The Big Show said, “I care about trying to tell good stories and have good matches. It was one of the best things I’ve been a part of in my career.”
