Big Show vs Floyd Mayweather - WrestleMania XXIV

 

It is too bad that Mayweather does not do wrestling full time. He would be an amazing heel, which may be the most obvious thing ever said. He has great facial expressions. He does a great job vacillating between concerned and confident in the beginning. The size differential is staggering. Mayweather's confidence grows as he gets in some body shots and then a couple head shots. It is funny seeing Mayweather have to reach so high up to punch Big Show in the face. Mayweather drinks from a chalice. Big Show is pissed. He takes out one of Mayweather's goons. The fear is re-instilled in Mayweather. When Big Show stomps the hand of Money Mayweather, the selling from Mayweather is awesome. It was such a smart first offensive spot from Big Show. Mayweather TOOK THE OVERHEAD SLAP! WOW! Mayweather is writhing in pain. I have not watched this match since it happened ten years ago. Show Stands on him. Mayweather takes a side slam! WOW! Show big elbow drop. The crowd is super into this. Mayweather's entourage pulls him out and wants to walk out. Show chases and trucks an entourage member. Now Show brings Mayweather back in. Show drops another goon with a chokeslam, but that goon brought in a chair. Mayweather goes to town with the chair and cracks him in the head twice unprotected. Then he gets some brass knuckled and KO shot drops the Big Show. Great way to put over the heel celebrity but protect Big Show. People loved seeing Mayweather gets his ass kicked because we never see that in his shoot matches. It was cathartic. Great finish, awesome action movie spectacle. ****

Mayweather looked so small next to the Big Show, it was comical.  He used his speed advantage early to pepper Big Show with punches, but started to get cocky.  He took a break in the corner and drank from a jeweled chalice.  Great prop.  Big Show was pissed and charged at Mayweather.  Mayweather moved out of the way and Show rammed one of Mayweather's security team.  This guy fell splat on the ground.  Show then lifted him high in the air by his shirt and nailed him again.  Not sure if the guys in Mayweather's corners were actual buddies of his or just indie guys posing as security but they got knocked around like crazy.  Was shocked at how game Mayweather was here, he took the huge Big Show slap to the chest then rolled around the ring whimpering.  Big Show then literally walked over Mayweather who was dragged out of the ring by his crew.  They tried to leave but Big Show chased them down and destroyed everybody before putting his arm around Mayweather's head like a child and walking him back to the ring.  It looked like Mayweather was about to be punished by dad for breaking curfew or something.  Mayweather avoids the chokeslam via low blow, then wallops Big Show with three chairshots, the last one unblocked to the head.  If you are going to eat a chairshot, this is the time and place for it I guess.  Mayweather then gets some brass knuckles and knocks Show out cold to get the pin.  Great way to put over Show's toughness in defeat.  This was a spectacle that could only happen at Wrestlemania.  Has to be in the top 5 of pro wrestling celebrity matches of all time.
