Big ShowAccording to Courthousenews.com, former WWE producer Andrew Green is suing WWE and Big Show, real name Paul Wight, for an alleged incident that took place at The Royal Rumble PPV this year. The following is an excerpt from the report:

Green claims that another WWE producer told him to get an interview with Wight after his Jan. 27 match at the (nonparty) US Airways Center in Phoenix.

Green said his job was to do post-match interviews with wrestlers, which were posted to the WWE website or to YouTube.

He claims Wight initially refused to do the interview, until Green told him that WWE senior vice president Eric Pankowski wanted the wrestler to do it.

"In response, Big Show stated with the use of profanely indecent language that if Green wanted an interview then he would give him one, and to turn on the camera," the complaint states.

It continues: "Big Show toward Green enraged, shouting obscenities, and waving his fist in Green's face. Big Show then grabbed Green by the collar and throat, striking Green in the face and backing him up against a trunk while declaring 'You son of a bitch … Are you having fun right now … Don't even come up to me again … I don't give a shit who you are'." (Ellipses in complaint.)

The attack was videotaped, Green says, and "Upon information and belief, Big Show was not feigning his emotional outburst at the time of the attack."
