• Jim Ross Comments On The Backstage Fight Between Big Show & Chavo Guerrero
During a SmackDown TV taping back in 2004, Big Show and Chavo Guerrero had a backstage fight.
Chavo reportedly called Big Show “fat & lazy”, and this resulted in Big Show throwing Chavo across the locker room.
During a recent edition of Grillin’ JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross said the following about this fight:
“Well, probably it was a culmination of things. If I had to rebuild this case, your honor, I would suggest that perhaps we would find a scenario where Big Show had been busting Chavo’s balls because he knew that he could, over for a few days.
It probably started out as a very lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek, satirical riff, and that it matriculated down the field into a shoot. And Chavo is a man’s man, he’s not going to back away even though he knows he’s on the short end of the stick, no pun intended.
So he stood up for his own honor and they did their thing and it was over quickly, thank God nobody got hurt. Look, guys travel, it’s hard to explain this sometimes to people, we don’t know what day that was. It was at the end of a 10 day run, or the beginning of a 10 day run, did either one of these guys have an issue with their wives before they left home, are either one of them hurting and they’re working because they don’t have the job security to stay home.
There’s a lot of things that go into the mindset of these cats. So you never know on that deal. So I’m just guessing that it was a cumulative effect, that Chavo had heard enough, and, ‘I heard enough, I can’t stand it anymore.’ So that’s where we were, I’m guessing.”
