Big Show’s Worst Moment: ‘Baby New Year Was So Freakin’ Awkward!’

– WWE Superstar Big Show recently appeared as a guest on Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast for an interview, check out the highkights below:

On his worst-ever WWE segment:

“There [has] been a lot of stuff I’ve done has been absolutely horrendous. But I think for me personally, the worst thing I’ve done was when Vince [McMahon] made me do the ‘Baby New Year’ thing because it was so freakin’ awkward. He had me in a freakin’ diaper with a New Year hat and he wanted me dancing and all I could think of, it was like some billionaire masturbating video where he [has] got some fat guy. You can imagine Vince in some dark room looking at it on a big screen, like, ‘yeah, now s–t in the diaper, you fat bastard! s–t in the diaper! That’s it!’ It was just so uncomfortable.”

On his feeling that Vince McMahon purposely did that to embarass him into losing weight:

“I got fat, so he goes, ‘so you’re a fat New Year Baby. Maybe you should lose some weight.’ But that’s the kind of relationship I’ve had with him, ‘he’s getting fat – I need to motivate him. Let me embarrass him.’ Do you know what I mean? The diaper worked. That insane, crazy Vincent Kennedy McMahon actually does know more than I do. He’s actually a smart guy. Believe it or not, he’s a brilliant individual. That’s funny. That literally was the most awkward thing I’ve done.”

Rhodes on keeping eye from afar on older brother Dustin

“I love that Goldust returned to the ‘Golden Age’,” said Rhodes. “I’m very proud of Dustin. One of the reasons we butted heads in WWE was because of timing. He was looking for redemption after the original Goldust run, and he was out to prove he had more left. He absolutely has more left, and he is wrestling’s version of Ra’s al Ghul. He is out there turning it up, on TV and at the live events. He’s got a lot left, but when he does hang it up, he’ll be Hall of Fame bound. I’m very proud of my brother.”

Cody is set for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 special in Long Beach, California on Saturday.

EC3 On Impact Tapings In India, Being Paid To Be An A–hole, More

– Impact Wrestling star Ethan Carter III recently spoke with The Sporting News to help promote this weekend’s Slammiversary XV pay-per-view, check out the highlights below:

On working recent Impact Wrestling tapings in India:

“It was nice to be in front of an audience that was not completely accustomed to us and it was rewarding to give effort to people who appreciated it. It very much reminded me that deep down inside, between all my despair, anger, and hatred, that I really love what I do. Being in front of a crowd that had certain reactions in places you wanted them reminded me of what I’m doing and why I do it. We’re appreciated in Orlando but it was fresh to them and they weren’t numb to us.”

On Impact controlling his outside promotion:

“Yeah, I’m like a caged animal sometimes. Let me yearn to breathe free. At the end of the day, the job I have is the job I love. I get paid to be an a–hole to people and beat people up and that’s pretty sweet. I’d like to do it more.”

On being a babyface and a heel:

“As a protagonist, I’ve fallen into a hole of what do people want as opposed to what do I want. In this mold, in this push forward, I can be more of what I want to be and try things different without the fear of fan reprisal. If they do not like it, I’m still doing my job. And my job is to make them not like it. Some do. Some like me as an a–hole. I tweeted this one time to people who said they like me better as a heel: eat s—. So I will say that to the fans now, if you liked me better as a heel: eat s—. Therefore, you either really like that statement or they really hate it and I can’t change your mind which is cool. If they want to boo me, great. Awesome. You want to cheer me? I don’t want you to cheer me but you can if you want.”
