It must be tough for a guy the size of The Big Show.

Despite his recent weight loss, Big Show is still 7ft tall and still weighs a hell of a lot more than your average human being, and his weight caused problems for a ring during a WWE house show.

Big Show hasn't been seen on TV for a while, with his retirement all-but expected to come after WrestleMania 33 next year, where he's set to face off against Shaquille O'Neal, but he has still been doing house shows for the company, and that is where his latest incident happened.

Wrestling John Cena, Show looked to hit a splash from the middle rope, a move he hits on a regular basis on his opponents, but this time, it wasn't to be for the 7ft giant.

After springing up and down a few times on the middle rope, when Show was set to bounce off the rope and onto Cena, the middle rope gave way, snapped, and caused Big Show to fall onto his back alongside his opponent.

The fans sounded their shock with gasps of air after the incident, before later on in the video, you see Cena pick up the giant and AA him for the win.

Despite it being a house show, luckily a fan in attendance managed to video the incident. @ryansongalia was at the event and tweeted the below video.

This isn't the first time Big Show has had issues with a WWE ring.

The most famous incident came on an episode of SmackDown, when Brock Lesnar hit a superplex on him from the top rope, only for the ring to give way underneath their bodies.
