Big Show: I’d ‘floss my teeth’ with McGregor

Makes Statement

In an interview with Forbes, Big Show says he cannot see McGregor in wrestling.

Hell No! Who’s Conor McGregor gonna fight? I’ve dated women bigger than him. What does he weight 135, 145? He reminds me of that little dog that runs around yapping all the time with a cigar in his mouth. He’s a little dog that barks. He’s an amazing athlete in his weight class, but he starts talking trash to me, Big E Langston, Braun Strowman would floss his teeth with Conor McGregor. I love Conor, I love how he runs his yap, but that’s like me saying I’m going to dunk on Shaq. That’s completely insane. I’ve got a two-inch vertical, you know that.

Big Show: I still love Conor McGregor

Makes Statement

Big Show says that, despite his comments about WWE fighters, he still admires McGregor.

I’m a fan of Conor McGregor. I respect the work he’s done in the ring. I get it. He’s a trash talker. He likes to create headlines. I wish him all the best in all he does…This business is about entertaining folks and if people want to see the match, and he finds someone who wants to get in the ring with him, who takes exceptional offense to it, then anything can and will happen.

DNAIndia.com interview


Big Show talks to DNAIndia.com about WWE, retirement and his current role in the company.

The business has completely evolved. when I started in 1995, it was like rock and roll. We couldn’t do anything wrong. The arenas were sold out. Our boss took good advantage of that and started building for the future. WWE went from teenage material to young adult to more family oriented which I think is a great move for our company.

Between the Ropes interview


Big Show talks to Between the Ropes about crying on television and John Cena.

 Everybody was real supportive and I did the scene and the director said it was good and what he wanted. Then I went to my trailer and then for about 45 minutes in my trailer I could stop balling. And I called my buddy was like dude was is wrong with me? Did I break something? I’m blowing snot bubbles, crying, hyperventilating. What is wrong with me? He said that’s what actors do. When they create a channel to that emotion, then they can tap into it and use it at any time. The weird thing is I’m a seven foot, 430 pound killer monster giant but to show an emotional side is actually a different dynamic for my character

Sports Illustrated interview


Big Show talks to Sports Illustrated about playing college basketball and Wrestlemania in New Jersey.

It’s completely different. New York and New Jersey fans are like no other fans anywhere in the world. It’s funny because New York is known for being competitive. New York likes champions. If you’re not pulling your weight, New York lets you know. Trust me: If you have a crappy match, New York fans will let you know right in the middle of it. They’ll chant boring. They’ll chant you suck. They’ll chantyou messed up. The pressure to do well is always a little bit higher in New York. But like anything, that pressure makes you better. So the only thing that I’m a little concerned about is the weather. Because, you know, I’m not wearing much. I’m wearing Spandex. It’s gonna be a little chilly out there.

WWE.com interview


Big Show talks to WWE.com about WCW’s Halloween Havoc and his memories of the event.

Both WCW and WWE performed in front of huge crowds, and at Halloween Havoc I was thrown right into the fire. For WCW, Havoc was definitely on par with SummerSlam, but even it couldn’t match the energies of WWE’s biggest events like SummerSlam and WrestleMania.

Big Show born in Aiken, SC


Show is born in Aiken, SC despite being billed from Miami Fl during his wrestling career. During his early life he works many odd jobs such as bouncing and bounty hunting. He pursues basketball at Wichita State University.

I look back at my college basketball career and I just want to go back in time, pull myself off to the side and … punch myself in the face. Hahahahaha. It’s a team sport, idiot. Start playing with your teammates.
