Jericho welcomes Big Show to the show.
Show informs that he has lost 90 lbs as of this date. For years he was the biggest guy everywhere he went, and he made big guys look small when he entered the ring with them. It was his gimmick, and he enjoyed it very much. Now that he’s at the end of the career, he doesn’t need that feeling anymore and he knew it was time for him to make a change.
He says his motivation to lose weight came as a result of a conversation with John Cena. He and Cena were jokingly taking jabs at one another one day and as he often did, Show was making fun of Cena’s body in the sense that he lives and eats right but he’s eventually going to die anyway. Show then made the comment, “Who’d want to see a giant with abs?” Cena looked at him and said, “Who wouldn’t want to see a giant with abs?” This angered Show, and he left that conversation very motivated.
He says that he dropped weight before in the past, but it was never really as a result of a positive change in his diet. He’s very proud of this weight loss because he has completely changed his diet and has stuck to his plan. It’s amazing to him how many of his co-workers and fans he has motivated through this weight loss, and that’s something that he’s very proud of.
