WWE star Big Show recently spoke with CBS Local in San Francisco, and below is what Show had to say on who inspired his most recent weight loss:
“The whole thing is John Cena’s fault,” Wight said.
“John Cena and I were watching the show in a monitor. Usually if you go to our shows, if John and I aren’t working, we’re sitting there watching the show together. John and I were just cracking jokes on each other, and I made the comment about a giant with abs, who’d want to see that? And John Cena looked me square in the eye and said, ‘Yeah, a giant with abs. Who would want to see that?’”
“And he walked off. But the way he said it, he challenged me that I couldn’t do it. And it really upset me so bad that I got my act together that week and started in. It took me a little over a year and I dropped 90 pounds.”
Natalya On How Important Fit Finlay Is to WWE Women
WWE Star Natalya has published her latest blog over at The Calgary Sun, and it examines how important Fit Finlay is to the WWE Women’s Revolution. Below is a blog excerpt:
I had the chance to ask Fit why it’s so important for him to help pass his knowledge onto the women of WWE. He said: “I think it became important to me because I saw a need, and it seemed to me that the women’s division at that time was just standing still and spinning its wheels. I felt I had something to offer, not to teach anyone to wrestle like me, but to tap into what made each of the women special and to help identify their individual personalities.”
So many women in WWE’s past, present and future look up to Fit and have learned under his wings of guidance; myself included. He was there for me to help me through every major moment of my career and even the tough times, like when I broke my ankle or when I was dealing with hardships in my personal life. There were so many times when Fit gave me the confidence and tools I needed to believe in myself and succeed in the ring. When I won my first Championship in 2010, I stepped through the curtain and got a hug from Fit. Having him proud of me was almost more special than winning the title.
