• Big Show Calls His Countless Heel/Babyface Turns In WWF/WWE “Super Frustrating” (Full List Of Turns)

Old School WCW/WWF Legend ‘The Big Show’ Paul Wight (fka The Giant) was interviewed by Inside The Ropes, where he expressed his frustration about his countless Heel/Babyface turns during his 1999-2021 WWF/WWE run.

Here’s what the former multiple time WWF/E World Heavyweight Champion had to say:

“Oh, I think it’s super frustrating. One of the things that turning did is made it hard for me to develop a consistent identity, you know, to sell merch.

Merchandise is a huge part of our industry and you either have to have a solid run as a really dominant heel where people want to buy your stuff because you’re the antihero and they like it, or you need to have a solid run as a babyface where they love your stuff and everybody wants to buy it.

When you’re flip-flopping, a lot of times you’re pissing people off, you’re constantly dividing your audience.”

Here’s a list of Paul Wight’s world record of 35 turns during his entire Wrestling (WCW/WWF/WWE/AEW) career:
