Exclamation Big Show = biggest flop in wrestling history!

I know I'm not the only person here that's tired of Big Show.

For 20+ years, he's been pushed for no other reason than being a fat 7 foot bastard. His wrestling matches are boring, his neck fat make him sound like a hermit in a pigeon hole, and he does not have the look of a WWE superstar, but a couch potatoe.

The only reason WCW hired him in the first place was to replicate Hogan's Andre the giant bodyslam. That didn't work. All Big Show is remembered for in WCW is Goldberg doing a jackhammer on him.

WCW/WWE creative must be a bunch of idiots. You had several 7 foot guys come and go who could easily replace this fatass as the big old scary 7 footer, but they kept him and changed/continue to change his direction as much as he changes who he copies.

He has to have gone from heel to face and back over 100 times throughout his career.
Has this been counted anywhere?

Whenever he sees the new top star do something great, he immitates it. Perfect example is when he turned heel this year and copied that 'shoot interview' Brock Lesnar had right down to the whole '... something something [SHIT] bleeep ...'

At least from my perception, Big Show will go down in wrestling history as the biggest JOKE to ever represent the product.

If they would have booked him like Andre the Giant then it would be a different story.

So you must think the same about Andre.

Not really a fan of his and especially tired of him the past few months but the biggest flop in history? Hardly.

And yet he'll end up in the HoF some day and will probably become world champion once again.

He will end up in the HOF because of the amount of years he's been in WWE. But considering he's been around just as long, do you think anyone will compare his legacy with the likes of Undertaker?

Flop can have different meaning. Obviously people who come and go from wrestling can't be considered as flops as nobody remembers them. Big Show though has constantly been the laughing stock of wresting for "22 years" :rofl
