WWE’s Big Show (real name Paul Wight) is now Syfy’s Big Pink, and TheWrap exclusively has your first look at the pro wrestler’s arc on Christopher Meloni-Patton Oswalt series “Happy!”
Wight, who stands 7-feet-tall, weighs 440 lbs., and has a 22 EEEEE shoe size way beneath his 64-inch chest, will recur this season as the cellmate to gangster Francisco “Big Blue” Scaramucci’s (Ritchie Coster). Wight’s Big Pink character debuts Wednesday night on the “Blitzkrieg!!!” episode, which has the following logline:
Who the hell is Dayglo Doug? Sax, Merry & Happy enter a geriatric death trap. Don’t eat the jelly.
In our clip, a very sensitive Big Pink tells Big Blue it’s like he is “two different people.” That doesn’t go over well with at least one of Blue’s personalities, and the much-smaller “Big” dude basically sets the much-larger one up for a Chokeslam.
Good luck with that, Blue.
Watch Wight act his (big) ass off via the video above.
“Happy” stars Meloni as Nick Sax, a corrupt ex-detective-turned-hitman whose life is changed forever when an imaginary and extremely positive blue-winged horse named Happy (voiced by Oswalt) appears.
Wight’s previous TV and film credits include “Psych,” “Royal Pains,” “Burn Notice,” “The Waterboy,” “Star Trek: Enterprises” and “MacGruber.”
Oh, and he’s also done some professional wrestling. The six-time world champion is the first wrestler in history to capture the WWE, WCW and ECW Championships.
Wight is repped by APA and Sam Perlmutter Law Office.
The Big Show’s debut episode of “Happy” airs Wednesday at 10/9c on Syfy.
