    Floyd Mayweather in WWE?

    Yep apparantly Floyd Mayweather was at the WWE pay per view No Way Out last night and hit a returning Big Show with a few legit hooks to the nose. This is to set up a tag match at the upcoming WrestleMania wth Mayweather and Rey Mysterio Jr. taking on Big Show and someone else.

    Not sure if Mayweather was meant to connect as much as he did with his hooks as bust Big Show pretty badly by all accounts, but either way I don't see why Mayweather is getting involved with the WWE at this point. I know Tyson did it, albeit in a non-wrestling role, and Ali did it as well, but at least when Ali did it pro-wrestling had some semblence of reality, but Mayweather is at the top of his game at the moment and doesn't need this. Tyson was finished in the ring when he appeared at WrestleMania 17 and needed the cash, but Mayweather hardly needs that, and it's not like The Money is looking to make a career out of pro-wrestling (at least I hope to God he isn't), it just seems like an odd move

    I had heard Mayweather was looking to get into MMA, so I was surprised at this.

    My money would be on Shane McMahon to be his partner
    Mysterio has a legit injury and is doubtful so plans could all change

    i posted this link already in the fans forum under match banner, its better quality than the other one.

    was good have to say, when he hit him, it was the quick left jab that actually did the damage though, not the right one.

    Well Mayweather accepted Big Show's challenge on Raw last night, so looks like it's gonna be Mayweather vs Big Show at WrestleMania

    Just watched the segment there, jesus how fast are Mayweather's hands

    interesting to see this fight....i mean what kind of a "fight" will it be. I didnt think it was that fast to be honest?! I think he only really got 2 proper shots in on him, the third one sliding off the side of his head....he was awful quick though getting in and out of the ring!!

    Well Big Show looks a lot slimmer so he'll be able to put in a faster pace match, so I guess it will be Floyd dancing with Show trying to catch him. Mysterio is out injured and De La Hoya turned down the chance (surprised given how big a fan of pro wrestling he is) so it's gonna be a singles match

    here's Mayweather on RAW

    big show has water in his eyes there...thtats way better than the version i saw with the repeat. Id say he was meant to hit his face but not his nose and not so hard

    im wondering it kinda looks real some of it....

    well it's scripted obviously but Floyd probably doesn't know how to throw a wrestling punch yet, or else got himself a little too worked up and started throwing his usual hooks, either way Big Show ended up with a proper broken nose and a shiner

    One thing that always annoys me about wrestling is this big man vs little man thing. I've met Big Show in real life (well said hello and shook his hand), and can confirm that a) his palm is the size of my face, and b) he could snap any man in half if he so wished and there would be nothing they could do about it, so even if Mayweather is the best boxer in the world he'd be no match for the Big Show

    id say a lot of the pro-wrestlers are wary of geting involved with amatuers(in the wrestling sense) like mayweather because things like injuries happening, also the same with guys like the talentless khali, apparently most guys on the roster hate been involved in matches with him because of the risk involved

    This could be as bad as when LT wrestled Bam Bam Bigelow, or it could turn out like Tyson as the enforcer with Stone Cold.
    Either way, it's just to increase buys for the Wrestlemania PPV - usually the biggest one of the year.

    I can't believe he is contemplating this. He's one of the best boxers of my generation and a hall of famer.... and he's going to clown around in the WWE, I can understand guys at the end of their careers and on the slide needing a quick pay cheque (Tyson banned and skint) but Mayweather is in his prime and big pay days await him. The WWE must be paying some serious $.

    Yeah but he keeps on trying to convince himself that he's quitting so he probably thinks he is at the end of his career, even though he'll probably have quite a few more fights yet.
