Big Show tells the story of The Undertaker sending him an usual picture after a great match they had.
Former 4-time WWE World Champion The Big Show last wrestled on the post-Survivor Series edition of SmackDown Live when he joined forces with Sheamus and Cesaro for a brief run as a trio. Big Show is in a ambassador role for the sports-entertainment company and makes various appearances around the world promoting the product. Big Show recently spoke with SPORTbible and the two parties had an in-depth conversation about "The Phenom" The Undertaker.
Big Show said that The Undertaker is one of the greatest of all time and touched on how "The Deadman" understands in-ring psychology and his character. Show did have the chance to hold the WWF World Tag Team Championships with The Undertaker on two separate occasions while he was a part of the "Ministry Of Darkness" and stated that Undertaker took him under his wing.
"Undertaker is one of the greatest and smartest guys in the history of the business. He understands his character so well and he's an expert in psychology. I was lucky enough to come in at a time and have him as my mentor when there wasn't a lot of mentors around. It was extremely competitive and no one gave a crap if you succeeded or not." Big Show recalled. "As long as you could put asses in seats, that's all anyone cared about. I had a lot of potential but I was green as grass. Hogan always took care of me in WCW. Flair told me what to do and so did Randy [Savage] and Arn [Anderson]. I just got in the ring and did what I was told. When I got to the WWE I had to do my own thing because no one was thinking for me. During that time period, Taker took me under his wing and man, it was old school. He would chew my ass out every night for something. I remember every night driving in my car thinking, 'Well I'm a fat piece of trash'."
Big Show then told the story of The Undertaker sending him a picture of his balls after a match they had. Show said that he and Taker did not see each other for nearly a month after the picture was sent and when they did finally see each other, it was nothing but laughs and a good time.
"We had a great match many years later, one of my favorite matches I've ever had. I sent him a text a bit later and said, 'Hey man, thanks for such a great match, I appreciate everything you've done for me, you're the man'. He sends me a text back and it's a picture of his balls and he's flipping me the bird." Big Show said. "I didn't know how to reply to that. I didn't see him for about a month afterwards and when I did, he just went red and started laughing. I said, 'Yeah thanks for that' and he asked, 'Well, did you get the message?'. Yeah, loud and clear."
While the Big Show was on WWE TV, Sheamus and Cesaro were the SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions and The Bar are currently looking to get back in the hunt for those titles. To stay up to date on the state of the SmackDown Tag Titles at this year's WrestleMania, head over to Fightful's "events" page.
