Full Details On Floyd Mayweather vs. Big Show, Match Layout

Ryan Clark


Floyd Mayweather vs. Big Show will be a No Holds Barred wrestling match at WrestleMania XXIV on Sunday. Mayweather has confirmed in several media appearances throughout the day that he will not be wearing boxing gloves in the match.

I was told that the match will be heavily scripted with pretty much every spot clearly planned ahead of time. As reported earlier, WWE developmental worker Matt Sydal has worked a little bit with Mayweather and Big Show on the layout of the match. Obviously with Mayweather’s inexperience, WWE did not want him trying to call his own spots in the ring.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer said today that he would not be shocked if Big Show/Mayweather helped WWE do a record buy rate for WrestleMania given how the story has gotten over as a major sports story.
