• Big Show Recalls The Time Brock Lesnar Went Off Script During Their WWE Title Match
Former WWF Champion The Big Show was recently interviewed by talkSPORT. He recalled the time when Brock Lesnar went off script during their WWE Championship match at Judgment Day 2003.
The World’s Largest Athlete revealed how Lesnar made fun of him and kept laughing at him due to his fear of heights.
“Down the line, Brock and I had some great feuds. I’ll never forget that stretcher match! Because I’m terrified of heights and he jacked me up about 30ft in the air on that forklift and he was just laughing knowing how scared I was up there! If you look at him when he’s on the forklift he’s legit laughing [laughs] because I’m just screaming like ‘you son of a gun!’”
Big Show also discussed how it all started between him and Lesnar because of their great chemistry.
“Vince said to me ‘so you work pretty well with Brock?’ And I said ‘yeah.’ And then it went along and they asked Brock who he wanted to work with and he said me. He said ‘he’s a giant who can work.’ So that kind of endorsement, they were forced to take another look at me and I was able to make the best of that opportunity.”
