In professional wrestling, Big Show is a five-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WWF/E Championship twice, and the ECW World Heavyweight Championship once, making him the only person ever to hold all three championships.

Outside of professional wrestling, Wight has starred in feature films and television series' such as The Waterboy and USA Network's comedy-drama Royal Pains.
