Sports entertainment fans should be happy: WWE Superstar The Big Show — real name Paul Wight — is set to recur on Season 2 of Syfy series “Happy.”
“The World’s Largest Athlete” (7-feet-tall, 440 lbs., 22 EEEEE shoe size and a 64-inch chest work for you?) will play Big Pink, the cellmate of Mr. Blue (Ritchie Coster), on five episodes of the upcoming run.
“Happy” stars Christopher Meloni as Nic 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 Patton Oswalt) appears.
Wight’s 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.
“Happy” returns to Syfy in 2019.
WWE Superstar Shakeup 2018: 42 Wrestlers You'll Now Only See on 'SmackDown Live' (Photos)
You won’t see any of these guys and girls on ”Raw“ anymore
We all just lived through another WWE Superstar Shakeup, and if your head is still spinning, we're here to help: TheWrap has tracked down where all 96 main roster wrestlers now work.
In our tallies, we only counted regular in-ring wrestlers, so no managers or agents or wives or escorts, etc. -- even if they step between the ropes once or twice a year. Though we listed the obvious and current stables and tag teams together, we added up wrestlers individually.
