Paul Wight (born February 8, 1972), better known by his ring name The Big Show, is an American professional wrestler currently signed with WWE, where he is the reigning World Heavyweight Champion. In professional wrestling, Wight is a seven-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WWF/E Championship twice, the ECW World Heavyweight Championship once, and the World Heavyweight Championship twice, making him the first and only wrestler ever to hold all four championships.

In addition to these championships, he has also won the WWE Intercontinental Championship once, the WWE United States Championship once, and WWE Hardcore Championship three times. Wight is also an 11-time tag team champion, having won the World Tag Team Championship five times (twice with The Undertaker, and once each with Kane, Chris Jericho, and The Miz), the WWE Tag Team Championship three times (once each with Chris Jericho, The Miz, and Kane), and the WCW World Tag Team Championship three times (once each with Lex Luger, Sting, and Scott Hall).

In addition to these accolades, Big Show is the 24th WWE Triple Crown Champion, the twelfth Grand Slam Champion in WWE history, and the third wrestler (after Kurt Angle and Edge) to have held every currently active male championship in WWE. He was also the winner of WCW's annual World War 3 60-man Battle Royal in 1996. Between WWE and WCW, Wight has held 23 total championships.

Outside of professional wrestling, Wight has appeared in feature films and television series such as The Waterboy, Star Trek: Enterprise, and USA Network's comedy-drama Royal Pains and the action-drama Burn Notice. In 2010, he had his first major role in the comedy film Knucklehead, which was produced by WWE Studios. Wight has made it known that he would like to continue his acting career and expand beyond roles based on his size.

Famous quotes containing the words show and/or big:

    The Taylor and the Painter often contribute to the Success of a Tragedy more than the Poet. Scenes affect ordinary Minds as much as Speeches; and our Actors are very sensible, that a well-dressed Play has sometimes brought them as full Audiences, as a well-written one.... But however the Show and Outside of the Tragedy may work upon the Vulgar, the more understanding Part of the Audience immediately see through it, and despise it.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)

    A big leather-bound volume makes an ideal razorstrap. A thin book is useful to stick under a table with a broken caster to steady it. A large, flat atlas can be used to cover a window with a broken pane. And a thick, old-fashioned heavy book with a clasp is the finest thing in the world to throw at a noisy cat.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
