Big Show and Braun Strowman squared off in the main event of 'Monday Night RAW' WWE

Braun Strowman and the Big Show have tussled on Monday Night RAW in the past. After putting on a shockingly good match back in February, which saw Strowman pick up the win, the two giants faced off again a week after Strowman put Roman Reigns in the hospital.

Of course, the circumstances around Strowman and The Big Show’s main event on this week’s episode of RAW had to do more than just Reigns getting (kayfabe) put on the shelf, and the two big men had another good match that ended on a high note.

After teasing a superplex a few times throughout the match, Strowman finally launched Big Show off the top row onto the middle of the ring, which caused the ring to collapse and the match to be thrown out. Check out the video of the spot below (starting around the 1:44 mark) and pay attention to the ref, because he takes a great bump.

But did you know that this isn’t the first time Big Show has been a part of the ring collapsing on WWE programming? There’s actually two other instances where the World’s Greatest Athlete collapsed the ring and you can watch them below.


Big Show and Mark Henry had their World Heavyweight title bout during the Vengeance pay-per-view in 2011, after Henry put Big Show on the shelf for four months. The two titans clobbered each other before Mark Henry did a superplex on the Big Show, collapsing the ring.

The crazy part about this match was that there was another title match right after this one between John Cena and then-WWE Champion Alberto del Rio. The two wrestlers had to go on with their match inside the collapsed ring.

Check out the spot that collapsed the ring below.



On an episode of Smackdown, a young and fresh Brock Lesnar squared off against The Big Show in the main event. After a grueling bout, The Big Show looked to end the contest by climbing to the top ropes before Lesnar got up and superplexed The Big Show onto the canvas and collapsing the ring. What makes this spot even more iconic is the call from Taz, who inadvertently shouts “Holy shit!” during the broadcast.

Check out the Brock Lesnar and Big Show collapse the ring below.
