From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Paul Donald Wight, Jr. (born February 8, 1972), better known by his ring name, (The) Big Show, is an American professional wrestler and actor signed with WWE.
In professional wrestling, Wight is a six-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WWF/E Championship twice, the ECW World Heavyweight Championship once, and the World Heavyweight Championship once, making him the first wrestler ever to hold all four championships. In addition to these championships, he has also won the WWE United States Championship once, the World Tag Team Championship five times (twice with The Undertaker, and once each with Kane, Chris Jericho, and The Miz), the WWE Tag Team Championship three times (once each with Chris Jericho, The Miz, and Kane), the WWF Hardcore Championship three times, and the WWE Intercontinental Championship once. In addition to these accolades, Big Show is the twenty-fourth Triple Crown Champion, twelfth Grand Slam Champion in WWE history, and the third wrestler (after Kurt Angle and Edge) to have held every currently active male championship in WWE.
Billed as "The World's Largest Athlete", Wight initially came to prominence through his career in the now defunct WCW from 1995 until 1999, then known simply as The Giant. In addition to being a two-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and the youngest man to ever hold the title, he is a three-time WCW World Tag Team Champion and the winner of the 1996 World War 3. Between WWE and WCW, Wight has held 22 total championships.
Outside of professional wrestling, Wight has appeared in feature films and television series such as The Waterboy, Star Trek: Enterprise, and USA Network's comedy-drama Royal Pains and the action-drama Burn Notice. In 2010, he had his first major role in the comedy film Knucklehead, which was produced by WWE Studios. Wight has made it known that he would like to continue his acting career and expand beyond roles based on his size.
