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.

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

Nope, just look at his accomplishments. He won every single title the WWE has to offer and was involved in some big storylines.

I can't stand Big Show, but there's no denying the fact that he will be considered legend and one of the best giant wrestlers of all time when he retires.

How the hell is a flop? He's won basically every title you can win in the WWE. He's the only person to win the WWE, WCW, and ECW (WWE version) championships. He has been a part of some money maker feuds with the likes of Floyd Mayweather. He has switched from heel to face and vice versa countless times in his career, yet he is still over.

The only flop here is this thread.

He has fought the likes of Hogan,Austin,Rock,Cena,HHH,Taker,HBK,Punk,Orton,Batista etc

He was involved in perhaps the greatest moment of Smackdown

He has fought Floyd Mayweather on WM

He is the greatest big man of WWE after Andre and Undertaker

Creative put belts on people, not people. The big guy obsession is proven with this guy.

What a random yet irrelevant comparison.Big Show is far from being a 'flop'

He's not a flop at all. He puts guys over, and whenever he's a heel the fans boo him, when he's a face they suddenly cheer him again; so he has a certain connection with the fans most wrestlers don't have. Expecting every big man to be pushed to the moon is a overrated, it's something the IWC hates when Vince does it, yet somehow we kind of expect it too. Show has definitely been extremely useful, also considering his celebrity matches at Mania.
