5. “Big Show,” Wrestling
“Big Show” went through a major fitness transformation in 2017, carving out a rock-hard six-pack and dropping more than 70lbs in about seven months. What gave the wrestling superstar his inspiration? Another fellow WWE icon: John Cena.
“We were talking about getting in shape,” “Big Show” said in an interview with WWE.com. “I said, ‘Ah, what the hell is a giant gonna do with abs?’ and John looked at me with a straight face and said, ‘Yeah. A giant with abs. That wouldn’t be marketable at all.’ And he walked off. It was kind of a shot, but [later] John reached out and congratulated me on the work I’ve done. That meant a lot.”Back to top
