On SmackDown, this bit of dialogue took place between Paul Heyman and the Big Show:

Heyman: Brock's young. He's the youngest WWE Champion ever!

Big Show: Well then, I'll be the biggest.

This got me to thinking. "That's not true, Andre the Giant was the biggest champion ever."
This got me to thinking even more. Way back in the day, before the company even changed it's name to WWE, the commentators were always pushing Wight as "The biggest man in sports entertainment." Shouldn't they be saying: "The biggest man in sports entertainment TODAY?" Have the people forgotten Andre so soon?
And another thing, Big Show isn't even the biggest man in wrestling! What about Giant Singh?

This is the same company that tried to get the audience to believe Hogan and Andre never wrestled before Wrestlemania III. So, in a nutshell they don't care about the truth. Only what will sell ppv buys.



Oh flaming box of stuff, is there no problem you can't solve?

Also, when Show said "Well, I'LL BE the biggest", I thought to myself, "since you already won it before, shouldn't it be 'I AM the biggest' "?

The "largest man" in sports entertainment comment also pisses me off...maybe Andre wasn't really as big as Show...they like to lie about heights and weights for the sake of storyline. This could just be another lie, come to think of it. There's no way they can call Rikishi "400 lbs" and then one day decide to call him "353 lbs". That's what they've done, and I definitely don't see Keesh as 50 pounds lighter. One day they just decided to use his 'real' weight.

I had the exact same gut reaction, but I suppose it could be debated that it depended on Andre's weight WHEN he had the belt. He was billed anywhere between 375 and 500 pounds or so if I remember correctly. And Big Show aint exactly slimmin' these days...

By the time Andre had the belt, he was drastically smaller due to the debilitative shrinkage caused by his disease. Not to mention, Andre's title reign lasted less than 5 minutes. I'm pretty sure the only title reigns shorter that can be attributed to the 24-7 Hardcore title rule.

Big Show is a legitimate 7 feet tall. Andre was only 6'10" at most. So Big Show is bigger.

Was Andre 6'10" at his absolute height (no pun intended) ? Or was that his height after the shrinking set in? What was his maximum height if it wasn't 6'10"?

That's a pretty flawed statement to begin with, considering Big Show was WWE Champion before, Yokozuna was without a doubt the heaviest pound-for-pound (though lacked height), and Andre was probably just as big - if not bigger - than the Big Show.

Heyman sure knows his shit!

Not that this makes it official or anything, but "WWF No Mercy" (the video game) lists Andre as 7'2".

As much as it pains me to say it, WWE is dieing a slow and painful death. There'll definitley be a WrestleMania XX, and maybe even a XXV. But a WrestleMania XXX? Now, that's a hell of a question. I suggest backing out of the bet now.
