Big Show, who fought Mayweather at Wrestlemania 24 in 2008, says McGregor is facing a tough competitor in Mayweather.
He’s one of the greatest fighters in his weight class of all time. To share the stage with him at WrestleMania was one of the most incredible moments of my career.
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 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.
