Conquer. Repeat. Big Show may be a freak of nature, it's a little known fact that the surgical removal of the pituitary gland to offset the onslaught of acromegaly can lead to the side effect complication of rampant case of stupidity! It is one of the greatest bonehead moves in the history of the WWE for Big Show to pick a fight with my client, Brock Lesnar. It's one thing for him to chokeslam Swagger, or knock out Zeb. I'm not impressed, and neither is my client, the obvious #1 contender, Brock Lesnar.
