Early life and Education
Paul Donald Wight Jr was born in Aiken, South Carolina, on February 8, 1972. Acromegaly, an endocrine disease, was discovered in Paul’s youth. By the age of 12, Paul had grown to 6’2″ in height due to this condition. When he was 19, he was 7’1″. He had surgery on his pituitary gland in the early 1990s to rectify the issue. In addition to slowing the progression of his disease, this also curtailed his future potential for physical growth.
Wight played football and basketball in high school. As a basketball center and tight end on the football field, he excelled in both sports. Paul quit the sports team following a quarrel with the coach to become a cheerleader. Afterward, he described it as his life’s defining moment. After high school, Wight attended Wichita State University in Wichita, Kan. He attended Wichita State University and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, where he played basketball.
He worked odd occupations like bouncing and bounty hunting after graduating from college. On top of this, he was answering the phone for a karaoke firm. On Danny Bonaduce’s morning radio show, he and Danny Bonaduce met in a live microphone amateur contest.
A WCW promotional basketball game in which Wight entertained the crowd convinced Hogan that he had promised, and he talked to Eric Bischoff about him later that day. In the beginning, Wight wanted to join the WWF, but they turned him down because he had no training in the organization.
He then contacted Larry Sharpe’s Monster Factory and paid them $5,000 to teach him the art of monster-fighting. But Sharpe had gout at the time, so Wight ended up training with Johnny Polo instead.
When Wight made his debut for the World Wrestling Association on December 3, 1994, he lost to WWA Heavyweight Champion Frank Finnegan in Clementon, NJ. When he signed up for WWA, it turned out to be his only bout for the promotion. In 1995, he received a lucrative contract with the World Wrestling Federation.
It took him many weeks to reconcile with nWo members, but he eventually joined the stable in 1996 and remained with it until December. As part of World War III, he won the battle royal and attempted to confront Hogan for the World Heavyweight Championship.
To reconcile with the other two members, it took him several weeks. He eventually joined the stable and remained there until the end of 1996. Erasing Hogan’s world heavyweight title, he won the World War III battle royal. When it came down to it, nWo rejected and expelled him from the group. A legendary feud ensued between him and Kevin Nash.
Big Show held the title in his hands before Triple H beat him to the title on January 3, 2000. His battle with Triple H and The Rock continued in the following months, culminating in his appearance at WrestleMania 2000. As a result of his experience in professional wrestling, his humorous character consisted of emulating other professional wrestlers.
For The Invasion storyline in 2001’s Royal Rumble, he returned. Big Show defeated Brock Lesnar at the 2002 Survivor Series to become the WWE Champion for the second time. Kurt Angle defeated him a month later for the title.
It wasn’t until 2011 when he was reunited with Kane after wrestling in one match for Memphis Wrestling. He won the World Heavyweight Championship for the first time in the 2011 TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs event. In 2012, he would win it back from Daniel Bryan at Hell in the Cell after losing it that day. Most of WWE’s main storylines have featured him since then, notably The Authority narrative.
‘Reggie’s Prayer,’ a 1996 sports drama where he played a figure named Mr. Portola, marked Wight’s debut on screen. Jingle All the Way, a Christmas family action comedy-drama starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sinbad, and Phil Hartman, was another opportunity for him that year.
Big Show’s Wife
Wight has had two marriages. His first wife, Melissa Ann Piavis, and he had a daughter named Cierra. They divorced in 2002, two years after they split in 2000. Five days later, he married a woman named Bess Katramados for the second time.
