• Big Show Claims WWF Legend Didn’t Want To Put Him Over At SummerSlam 2013
The Big Show recently spoke to fellow WWF Attitude Era Legend Chris Jericho on an episode of the weekly ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, where the 7-foot-tall athlete claimed that ‘The Game’ Triple H refused to put him over in a match that was discussed for the WWE SummerSlam 2013 pay-per-view on August 18th 2013 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
That year, both of them were involved in the famous Authority storyline.
Neither Triple H nor The Big Show wrestled at SummerSlam 2013. Instead, HHH became the special guest referee for the main event between John Cena and Daniel Bryan (and later Bryan vs. Randy Orton after the Money In The Bank cash-in), while The Big Show accompanied ECW Legend Rob Van Dam to the ring for his match against Dean Ambrose.
Here’s what the former WCW/WWF/WWE/ECW World Heavyweight Champion had to say:
“The whole angle with Hunter that one time, the fans went crazy because Hunter and I got into a big look on the ramp when [The Authority] were running the company and all that stuff and screwing the guys over. Just off a look the fans wanted to see it.
So we built that up and all that, and it never turned into a match. Hunter didn’t want to wrestle me at SummerSlam, didn’t want to put me over at a pay-per-view. ‘There’s not going to be a match. You get to knock me out and that’s the end of it.’ And that’s what happened.”
The Big Show (now known as Paul Wight in AEW) holds the record for the most turns (Babyface-Heel / Heel-Babyface) in professional wrestling history, and it’s not even close.
