The WWE universe in in shock as the world's largest athlete 'The Big Show' has slimmed down to show a now a now toned boy full of abs.
Known for his large physique and his round shape, Paul Wright II revels he took inspiration from fellow WWE legend John Cena to trim down.
Speaking to the WWE Network, Big Show reveled: “It was definitely a conscious decision. You don’t make the transformation I’ve made without a serious commitment to changing 40 years of improper diet and improper training.”
A pretty poor diet contributed to his massive size — which originally stemmed from a tumor that formed on his pituitary gland during childhood.
The 45-year-old has been working with with Miami-based celebrity trainer Dodd Romero — who has worked with the likes of actor Denzel Washington and baseball star Alex Rodriguez.
Part of his plan to slim down included swimming, cycling and weight training.
“Right now my schedule’s pretty light, but if I’m home three days, I train every day. If I’m home 10 days, I train every day,” he said.
“Right now, mostly, everything I count on is high-rep. I’m not trying to build muscle right now, I’m trying to keep my metabolism up, keep my tendons strong, keep my joints good, and cut a lot of fat.
“We’ll get to the muscle-building end of it once I get my body fat down to where I want it to be. … Those who weight-train know what I’m talking about. Lower reps with heavier weight will be more for building muscle. Right now we’re just trying to burn it up and keep it high-energy so the fat doesn’t have a chance to stick and grow.”
Big Show has dropped more than 60 pounds and credits “90 percent” of his weight loss to improving his diet.
“Will I end up ever looking like John Cena or The Rock or Triple H? No,” he said. “But I can take the assets that I have and try to accentuate them.”
