Since the 1990s, Big Show has more than lived up to his stage name. Yes, standing at over seven feet tall and weighing in at over 400 pounds for much of his career, the WWE star has often towered over – and outbulked – most of his opponents. Now, though, the sports legend looks very different from the man who made his Wrestlemania debut all the way back in 1999. And when you see how Big Show has completely transformed himself, your jaw may just drop.
Big Show entered the world in February 1972 as Paul Donald Wight II. And as a child, he had acromegaly – a disorder that is typically a result of the pituitary gland making too much growth hormone. Owing to the condition, then, Wight was much larger in stature as a youngster than other kids his age.
