WWE® Superstars Big Show®, Becky Lynch™ To Attend Wizard World Comic Con Austin
'The World's Largest Athlete (Sept. 24),' Fiery Redhead (Sept. 23) Return To Wizard World Tour At Austin Convention Center
By: Wizard World Inc.
Reminiscent of such goliaths as Andre the Giant and Big John Studd, Big Show is a feared competitor who intimidates opponents with his size and stare alone. The World's Largest Athlete's measurements are astounding. He weighs 441 pounds, stands a mighty 7 feet tall, wears a 22 EEEEE size shoe and boasts a 64-inch chest. It's no surprise, then, that his in-ring debut left crater-sized impressions on the likes of Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair where the young giant captured the WCW Championship on two occasions.
Make no mistake: The first man to capture the WWE, WCW and ECW Championships is more proficient at delivering punches than punchlines. Not only has he won every title WWE has to offer, they can't create accolades fast enough for the giant to claim them. In only the second year of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal's existence, Big Show captured the ascendant honor by eliminating Damien Mizdow. Still knocking heads almost 20 years into his career, Big Show remains a monstrous threat. Best of luck to anyone who crosses his path.
A fiery redhead from Dublin, Ireland, Lynch is ready to fight anyone in her path. Trained for the squared circle at the age of 15, Lynch travelled the world perfecting her craft before joining NXT in 2014. While proving she could hold her own in the squared circle, Becky forged various friendships during her time at NXT, including one with Bayley and another with Sasha Banks as part of Team B.A.E. (Best at Everything). Eventually, Becky shocked the WWE Universe when she joined WWE's roster as part of the "Divas Revolution" – a member of Team P.C.B. (with Charlotte and Paige).
The two join the all-star guest list which includes "Doctor Who's" Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, Sebastian Stan (Captain America), William Shatner ("Star Trek," "Boston Legal"), Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn), Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness, Evil Dead), Lee Majors ("Six Million Dollar Man," "The Fall Guy"), and James Marsters ("Buffy: The Vampire Slayer").
