Before he was the star of his own Netflix show, The Big Show had a small role on 'Jingle All The Way' alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. Big Show was just beginning his wrestling career when the film was released in 1996. He played Huge Santa in the film, running into Arnold, who was on a quest to find the Turbo Man action figure for his son.
Appearing on The Bump, Big Show discussed how he bonded with Arnold on the set of the movie.
"There was a scene cut out where Arnold hooked my suspenders and one of the hooks that carried the Teddy Bears, and it was supposed to swing me around the warehouse," recalled Show. "I was hanging in the stunt vest and they were changing camera lenses. I was quiet and shy. Arnold was giving me a hard time, pestering me to loosen up. I was hanging in the harness and Arnold walks by with a big [cigar] in one hand, takes a big puff, and says, 'Are you having fun?' 'Yessir, I'm having a good time.' 'Good, pay attention' and he slapped me right in the nads while I was hanging in the harness. So, I'm sitting there spinning from the nad shot and thinking, 'Arnold Schwarzenegger just hit me in the nuts and it's funny.' After he hit me in the nuts, like any friend were to do, it was like, 'We're cool.'
"Then, for five years, every time he met me, he acted like he was meeting me for the first time, which drove me crazy."
Arnold has made multiple appearances on WWE television over the years and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015.
