The Big Show eats a lot of meat!

    The Big Show came into my Denny's last night and I got to serve him. The man is absolutely massive! I'm 6'3 270 pounds and I felt as small as I have ever felt next to another human being. He literally had to duck through the doorway!

    He ordered a Prime Rib Cobb salad with extra steak, and an entire bowl of Meatballs (Denny meatballs are the size of a small fist). He's really really nice guy and tipped 10$ on a 24 dollar tab.

    I wish I could post some pictures but I didn't want to bother him for one. I already had other guests coming up to him for pictures (some while he was eating.. ***), and I feel like I'd be very annoyed by stuff like that if I was mildly famous, even if it does come with the job.

    Just not something you expect to see working Graveyard shift at a Denny's. Thought it was interesting enough to share =p

    You didn't get a chance to ask him if he thought Vince M ruined wrestling?

    Anyone remember when they (I forget which promotion did it) posed him as the "Son of Andre the Giant"?

    For a long time I though Vince M ruined it. And get me wrong he did some things that for at least me, ruined my interest in following the sport/exhibition.

    But the old territory system was falling apart by the early 80's came about. Sam Munchnick retired and left a massive hole in what was arguably the NWA's strongest territory– St. Louis.

    Sam helped maintain the territory system which worked for 40 years, but after he left there wasn't anyone else who could see the big picture and realize the potential of a country-wide territory.

    I don't think it was a coincidence that it was Ted Turner who bought what was left of the NWA and not anyone who was previously associated with the NWA.

    True story - he went to college and played basketball right here in my hometown. He was recruited (for reasons the locals still can't explain) and eventually signed. At the time everyone was :eek: when they saw how big he was. Then he got on the court. No skill set what so ever. He sure made for interesting conversations during his stay. And no one was surprised when he joined the WWF. To tohe OP's point he is a very big man. I've seen him many times and can say very honestly I wouldn't want him mad at me. Oh I almost forgot, when his music hits now, the entire family sings "Wellllllllll it's the big slow!!!"

    True to a point but I do miss the days of NWA/Mid South Wrestling. It also im sure has something to do with getting older and not being as "into it" as you were when you were younger. Plus a lot of the wrestlers back then always seemed to give way better interviews/promos then the latter generations for the most part, Dick Murdoch, Dusty Rhodes, Ernie Ladd, Mr Wrestling II, the Assassin as well as Cowboy Bill Watts were all excellent behind the mic. And Murdoch wow what a character...ive heard stories he was the same outside the ring as in........wasn't uncommon for him to get into a barfight and really clean house.

    LOL@ 4:35 he called him a puska{wha?}

    Good stuff... Ernie Ladd... Gordon Solie... Mr. Wrestling II.

    Boy that was a whole different era with the territories.

    I grew up with the NWA promotion out of eastern Canada, which broadcast on the CHCH channel 11 here in this part of New York State. Of course we had the WWWF every Saturday night at Midnight.

    Then in the late 70's they started showing Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling, which was another NWA territory. This was when Ric Flair was just starting to make a name for himself.

    Had Georgia Champion Wrestling for a few years in the early 80's. Even had South West Championship Wrestling for a couple years.

    I do miss all that.
