Everyone loves a good David and Goliath story,
especially when it comes to the squared circle.
Yet the underdog isn't always able to topple the giant.
Here are the biggest mismatches in WWE history.
Believing Hornswoggle was his illegitimate son, Mister McMan wanted Him to
prove that he could overcome the odds like a true McMahon.
So it's Survivor Series 2007.
The 4'5'' superstar had to face the 7'1" Great Kahli.
The Miami crown wanted Shaquille O'Neal to compete instead,
but McMahon wasn't about to deprive his son of the opportunity.
Hornswoggle dodged Kahli at first, but
the Punjabi giant knocked him out with a devastating chop.
Luckily, Finlay proved to be more of a supportive father figure and
came to Hornswoggle's aid.
In spring 20o3,
Rey Mysterio woke a sleeping giant after repeatedly embarrassing Big Show.
Mysterio had to face the world's largest athlete at Backlash 2003.
Mysterio's speed and agility couldn't overcome the 300 pound size difference.
And Big Show countered the west coast pop with a devastating, decisive choke slam.
After the medical staff placed Mysterio on a spinal board, Big Show returned for
a final, vicious reminder that he wasn't a giant
to mess with. >> I've been in this
business 15 something years, I have never seen anything like that in my life.
Later that summer Lesner faced Zach Gowen in one of the most monstrous
displays in WWE history.
At 159 pounds the one-legged Gowen was defying the odds as a member of
the Smack down roster.
But he simply couldn't match the beast incarnate.
Lesner not only dismantled Gowen in front of his family, but
he also taunted Gowen's mom throughout the match.
Gowen technically won by disqualification,
because Lesner’s assault was so gruesome that the referee had to call for the bout.
>> Don't I know you?
Any man with two hands has a fighting chance except against Braun Stroman.
The monster among men destroyed dozens of local competitors in 2016, but
none stood out more than his destruction of James Ellsworth.
On a July 2016 edition of Raw, Stroman measuring a full
foot over his opponent launched Ellsworth around the ring,
like a toy, before mercifully throwing him face first into the mat to end the match.
King Kong Bundy outsized everyone who dared to cross his path.
In a six man tag team match at WrestleMania III,
the 458 pound Bundy teamed with Lord Littlebrook and
Little Tokyo to take out Hillbilly Jim, Katie Kid, and Little Beaver.
The rules stipulated that Bundy and Jim could only fight each other, but during
the match, Bundy turned his attention to the four foot four Little Beaver,
slamming to the mat, and squashing these 60 pound superstar.
WWE is sometimes nicknamed the land of the giants and for good reason.
Until next time, thanks for watching List This.
