Biography

Wight was born in Aiken, South Carolina. After school, Wight worked various jobs including bouncing, bounty hunting, and answering phone calls. Through doing the latter for a karaoke company, he met Danny Bonaduce in a live microphone amateur contest on his morning radio show. Bonaduce introduced Wight to his friend Hulk Hogan.

They had an informal basketball game, as part of a World Championship Wrestling (WCW) promotion for an upcoming show at the Rosemont Horizon. Hogan liked how Wight worked the crowd, and recommended him to World Championship Wrestling Vice President Eric Bischoff. Wight went to the Horizon show, and was invited into the locker room, where he met Ric Flair, Arn Anderson (his boyhood hero) and Paul Orndorff. He later met Bischoff there and came to a deal.

Wight had earlier attempted to inquire about joining the WWF, also at the Horizon, during an autograph session. Promoter and scout Bob Collins turned him away after he admitted he had no experience. He paid Larry Sharpe's Monster Factory $5,000, but due to Sharpe's gout at the time, he was only very minimally trained (Johnny Polo taught him the collar-and-elbow lockup). While there, he made an audition tape and gave it to Mike Chioda, whom he had met in a Philadelphia bar. Chioda forwarded it to Pat Patterson, who did not bother watching it because he assumed Wight was another wrestler, Kurrgan. Only when he saw The Giant debut in WCW did Patterson realize his mistake, to Vince McMahon's displeasure. Wight's first professional wrestling match was on December 3, 1994 for World Wrestling Association in Clementon, New Jersey, where he lost by countout to WWA Heavyweight Champion Frank Finnegan. This was his one and only match prior to signing with WCW.

Trivia

  • He actually once spanked Stacy Keibler in her panties with her skirt pulled down.
    • The method of the spanking was rude as when the fans were cheering for Stacy, Big Show pulled her skirt, then he pulls her down and make her lie on her tie and finally he licks his palm and hits Stacy's buttocks which called better as spanking Stacy and drops her down
      • Also that way is like he was one of Stacy's teachers or parents as they spank girls like that.
  • He is also a friend of another wrestler who was his opponent sometimes.
