Paul Donald Wight II, a.k.a. The Big Show is here to motivate you now. WWE is full of fit athletes. Some of these athletes are shredded to their bones, but The Big Show wasn’t one of them, until now.
A Giant With Abs
Although his sheer size was what got him the fame, Paul wasn’t really happy with his fitness level. He has lost 70 pounds and can finally see his abs. Making the plunge to reducing weight was a hard decision for Wight since athletes in his profession are encouraged to get as big as humanly possible.
Very few people know The Big Show’s massive size is caused by a tumor which formed on his pituitary gland causing growth spurt from the age of nine. Paul weighed in at 500 lbs multiple times during his wrestling career.
All of this weight gain wasn’t just because of his tumor. Paul confessed to having a bad eating habit which added to the problem. He clearly wasn’t one to follow the norms. He put on so much weight even while being in an environment which needed optimal physical performance.
