The World’s Largest Athlete’ Joins Sebastian Stan, Evan Peters, William Shatner, Hayley Atwell, Others At Sacramento Convention Center Next Weekend
SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 10, 2016 – Already a huge world class pop-culture event, Wizard World Comic Con Sacramento just got a lot “bigger” as “The World’s Largest Athlete,” WWE Superstar Big Show®, will be at the event on Saturday, June 18, at the Sacramento Convention Center. Big Show will pose for photo ops (11 a.m.) sign FREE autographs (11:30 a.m.), and conduct an interactive Q&A session (1:30 p.m.) at the pop culture extravaganza, the 11th event on Wizard World’s calendar of comic con and gaming cons in 2016.
Big Show joins the all-star guest list which includes Captain America star Sebastian Stan, X-Men standout Evan Peters, Hayley Atwell (“Agent Carter,” Captain America: The First Avenger), William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “Boston Legal”), and Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson (The Naked Gun) on the roster of celebrity guests scheduled to attend Wizard World’s third trip to Sacramento, set for June 17-19.
“We love the fans in Sacramento, and we are excited to add WWE Superstar Big Show to the Sacramento event” said John Maatta, the Wizard World CEO. “We are thrilled to reward our loyal fans with free autographs from this larger-than-life personality as Big Show comes to the big show.”
Reminiscent of such goliaths as Andre the Giant and Big John Studd, Big Show is a feared competitor who intimidates opponents with his size and stare alone. The World’s Largest Athlete’s measurements are astounding. He weighs 441 pounds, stands a mighty 7 feet tall, wears a 22 EEEEE size shoe and boasts a 64-inch chest. It’s no surprise, then, that his in-ring debut left crater-sized impressions on the likes of Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair where the young giant captured the WCW Championship on two occasions.
Make no mistake: The first man to capture the WWE, WCW and ECW Championships is more proficient at delivering punches than punchlines. Not only has he won every title WWE has to offer, they can’t create accolades fast enough for the giant to claim them. In only the second year of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal’s existence, Big Show captured the ascendant honor by eliminating Damien Mizdow. Still knocking heads almost 20 years into his career, Big Show remains a monstrous threat. Best of luck to anyone who crosses his path.
Other well-known Wizard World Sacramento guests include Jewel Staite (“Firefly”), Caroll Spinney (Voice/puppeteer – “Sesame Street”), Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Scott Wilson (“The Walking Dead,” “Damien”), Dameon Clarke (Voice actor: “Dragon Ball Z”), Denis O’Hare (“American Horror Story,” “True Blood”), Annie Wersching (“The Vampire Diaries”), Michael Cudlitz (“The Walking Dead,” “Southland”), Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” Vendetta), Chris 51 (“Epic Ink”) and others.
