Big Show didn't start out as The Big Show! Photo Courtesy of wrestlerbiographies.com
Most educated wrestling fans know that the Big Show hasn't always been the Big Show. When he came into the business he was called The Giant and at one point, by his actual name Paul Wight.
What most fans don't recall is that when Wight made the switch from WCW to WWF, he didn't come in as Big Show or The Giant. He came in as "Big Nasty" Paul Wight.
Surprisingly, the name didn't stick and Wight became Big Show in a matter of weeks.
Another fun Big Show name fact? When he first came into the business he was billed as Andre The Giant's son for a while. Another gimmick that didn't stick for the big man.
Little did the muckey-mucks know that he would eventually be known by just his nickname. I'd say it worked out pretty well.
