Big Show in Real Life

Birth name: Paul Wight
Gender: Male
Date of birth: 8 February 1972
Place of birth: Aiken, South Carolina
Character(s): Orion slaver

Paul "Big Show" Wight, (born 8 February 1972; age 43), is a professional wrestler who appeared in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Borderland" as an Orion slave-trader. He is the third WWE superstar to appear on Star Trek, after The Rock and Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Jr., and the second to appear on Enterprise, after Lister.

As a wrestler, Big Show has worked for World Championship Wrestling and all three brands of World Wrestling Entertainment (Raw, Smackdown and the now-defunct ECW). At the time of Borderland's production, he principally performed on the Smackdown brand, whose weekly television show was on UPN, the same network as Enterprise.

Standing at 7' 1" and weighing 500 pounds, he very aptly fit his first wrestling pseudonym, "The Giant". On 17 February 2008, Big Show made his return to the WWE at the company's "No Way Out" pay-per-view event. He lost 108 lbs and weighed less than he did when he left in February 2007.

As an actor, the Big Show has appeared in the television shows Player$ and One on One, plus the films The Waterboy and Jingle all The Way. Wight would go on to star in the film Knuckelhead.
