WWE legend and current AEW star The Big Show is in incredible shape – and he’s proud of his transformation.
The 49-year-old wrestler – now working under his real name Paul Wight – was billed at 500lbs at his heaviest, but over the past few years he’s worked hard to tone himself up, drop some weight and he’s looking better than ever.
He shared a selfie from the gym over the weekend, pulling his T-shirt up with a smirk on his face as he flashed his abs for the camera.
Posting the snap on Instagram, he wrote: ‘I think I can see em?? Back on track now the fun begins! #feelinggreat #giantabs (sic)’
His former Big Show Show co-star Allison Munn shared some handclapping emoji, with plenty of his fans and fellow performers also reaching out.
Dolph Ziggler post some fire emoji, adding: ‘Woooo’
And Charlotte Flair simply commented: ‘Ok big show!! (sic)’
This comes after his former WWE rival and now-AEW co-worker Mark Henry also showed off the hard work he’s put into getting in better shape.
The World’s Strongest Man – who still holds the WDFPF world records in the squat, deadlift and total – looks to be in incredible shape as he posed for the camera with a huge smile on his face.
Revealing his current target, he tweeted: ’20 pounds to go.’
Henry – whose most recent in-ring appearance came in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 – got plenty of messages of support from friends and fans alike.
Renee Paquette replied: ‘Go Mark!! You look amazing!’
Natalya – one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions with Tamina – added: ‘Proud of you!’
And giant Omos – who holds the Raw Tag Team Titles with AJ Styles – tweeted: ‘Looking good big homie!! (sic)’
The 49-year-old Hall of Famer retired from the business in 2017, but last month he revealed he’s keen to get back in the ring for one more run.
To get himself back in shape, the former world champion had already dropped almost six stone before revealing his latest milestone.
‘Listen, I’m going to go out there in really good shape. I’m already 80 pounds lighter than I was when I had my last match,’ he said on Booker T’s podcast.
‘I’m going to be in really good shape. It’s going to take a good man to beat me, but it might not take him long.
‘At 50, they don’t expect me to go out there and have a 20 minute, five-star match, just to be honest. I’m telling you that right now.’
