How do they fake Big Show's WMD?

Seriously, it doesnt look like your typical phantom punch. The only one I have ever seen look incredibly weak was the one against Vince McMahon, but he obviously didnt wanna take a knockout blow. So, how do the sports entertainers fake the Knockout Blow? When Big Show swings his fist, it legit looks like he knocks his opponent straight the fuck out. UFC style. So how do you think this works, you think Big Show calls the spot and says get ready to take a very very stiff hit? Or.,..?IDK and sometimes you can even hear the sound. Props to the wrestlers that take this punch. Especially Cena, he gets knocked out quite a bit.

Top three favorite wrestlers of ALL TIME
1.Triple H
2.Chris Jericho
3.Randy Orton

Either they run into the punch, or he really doesn't put any force into it. Depends on the segment and how it's being shot.

I've never seen it look as real as you describe, and the sound effect is only used in replays and Smackdown.

Looks like a playful cheek bump thing you do to your buddies.

That 'crack' noise it makes though. How? He doesn't slap his thighs or anything, neither does his opponent.

..HOW.

That's all post-production stuff, doesn't happen in real-time.

You never hear it watching live.

I'm assuming his fist is barely shut as well.

Maybe Big Show is not so terrible at his job as you most make him out to be.

That was a good punch, but many types it's an obvious tap or big show has a quick pull back

Re: How do they fake Big Show's WMD?

you can fake the energy behind a punch, and actually make the punch just a touch to the face. Thats what Big Show does and the opponent has to sell it like a real punch.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]
