Since the 1990s Big Show has been one of the biggest names in wrestling – literally. Standing over seven feet tall and tipping the scales at 400 pounds for much of his career, the WWE star is known as a giant by name and giant by nature. However, in 2017 he revealed an incredible transformation.
Big Show was born Paul Donald Wight II in Aiken, South Carolina, in February 1972. As a child, he had acromegaly – a condition that is often caused as a result of the pituitary gland making too much excess growth hormone. So Wight was much larger in stature than other kids his age growing up.
