The Big Show on Wanting to Work with Finn Balor, Asking Floyd Mayweather to Break His Nose

Sky Sports has recently interviewed The Big Show in London last Wednesday. You can check out some highlights here:

On asking Floyd Mayweather to break his nose to promote their Wrestlemania match:

“The hit was hard enough! I asked him to break my nose and, as one of the best fighters in the world, he did! He didn’t cause any irreparable damage as I still look like Robert Redford… I have nothing but good things to say about Floyd – he is a fantastic businessman and entertainer, although his grandmother laid into me pretty hard after WrestleMania for slapping her baby boy in the chest! As for Floyd’s possible fight with Conor McGregor, if it was a boxing match, he would win – Conor wouldn’t be able to hit him. Conor hits hard but it doesn’t matter if you can’t hit your target! Floyd has too much unconscious competence. Still, it would be some draw.”

On wanting to work with Finn Balor:

“We have try-outs at almost every TV taping and it can be hard for guys to shine in an empty arena with a bunch of Superstars standing around watching, but you can tell in 20 seconds whether some guys have ‘it’ – whether they move their feet right, are willing to learn and can be a WWE Superstar. Finn, who was by no means a rookie having fought in different dojos all over the world, had that charisma and charm that you wanted to see more of – I would have loved the chance to work with him as we could have torn the house down. With his attitude and skill he will overcome this injury and come back strong. It was pretty badass of him to separate his shoulder [in his match against Seth Rollins at SummerSlam] put it back in and continue to wrestle. That deserves a lot of respect.”
