The Big Show recalls being confused for Kevin Nash in his younger days.
Paul Wight, The Big Show, used to be billed as the son of Andre the Giant. Eventually, he carved his own path, but that did not mean that people did not continue to compare him to other giants in the industry.
Speaking with MuscleManMalcom for The Sportster, Paul recalls being compared to and confused for Kevin Nash and how that once got Kevin into some trouble at home.
“Back in the day and WCW before Kevin Nash came around, for a long time, people thought I was Kevin Nash. I remember Kevin pulled me to the side many years ago, because I was single at the time, and we were running around crazy. I used to go to all the bars and stuff and I tell everybody I was Kevin Nash. Well, I was getting him in trouble at home. Because all these people are calling and saying, ‘Hey, Kevin was at this bar in St. Louis. Hey, Kevin is at this bar.’ and Kevin's like, ‘I was in my room.’ So Kevin said ‘Hey, man, you quit telling people you're me. I was like, ‘Oh, alright, my bad.’ So, but yeah, it happens. I mean, I think sometimes being compared to someone else, or confused or someone else, you've sparked something in someone's mind. You know, I mean, I still have people on this day that refer to me as Andre, and, you know, I don't think I look anything like Andre,” Wight recalled.
