Cena joked that no one would want to see a “giant with abs.”
That one comment from Cena prompted the star of The Big Show Show on Netflix to hit the gym and get into the best shape of his life.
From the looks of this recent clip on Twitter, Wight is still taking his fitness journey seriously, even though the road hasn’t always been easy.
In an interview with WWE.com, Wight explained that he had to undo 40 years worth of learned dietary and physical behaviors to get into better shape.
“I wanted to make a change,” he told the website, “and I was given the time and opportunity to make a change, so I took advantage of it.“
Wight enlisted the help of celebrity trainer Dodd Romero and completely overhauled his diet. He dropped over 70 pounds and looks yoked.

The guy looks almost unrecognizable.
Wight is preparing for the second season of The Big Show Show, but could one more WWE run be in his future?
At 48 years old, it’s not out of the question.
