The Big Show is a big part of the Smackdown Your Hunger with Hungry-Man & WWE promotion nationally.
That promotion kicked off in Las Vegas with WWE champ Dean Ambrose, made a stop in Orlando with up-n-comer Apollo Crews and then headed south to Miami where the legendary Big Show calls home.
The longtime WWE superstar drove to Walmart (across from Dolphins Stadium) in Miami Gardens on Friday, July 22 for a free meet-n-greet, promoting Hungry-Man under the Pinnacle Foods banner. Hungry-Man dinners are sold at Walmart.
Many, especially kids, were in awe of this larger than life sports entertainer. When the 7-0, 440-pound Big Show stood up, the crowd gasped. After meeting him, they had a different reaction as Big Show put a lot of smiles on faces.
Never miss a local story.
About 200 fans, all ages, left happy after receiving autographs and taking photos with the gentle giant. He was awesome interacting with them, also greeting them and answering questions.
Some fans brought action figures, artwork, books, DVDs, shirts, unique photos and replica belts to get signed. When one fan asked which belt he liked most, Big Show said the WCW belt, the ginormous one Ric Flair made famous.
Representatives from Acosta Marketing, Pinnacle Foods, Walmart and WWE did a very good job coordinating and running the event. After setting up the area, they took photos for fans and handed out Hungry-Man coupons and a very cool Hungry-Man chicken leg keychain.
