I want to get everyone's opinion on this. Is Big Show's K.O. punch real or fake? It's wrestling. Obviously it's fake. Or is it... Typically when your hear punches or kicks you can see the superstar slap their leg, their chest, or their other hand. One time I saw Big Show hit Ricardo Rodrigez and I could see Big SHow slap his chest. Obviously it was fake. But what about when Big Show does this punch on potentially toughe individuals, for example Shaemus. If you watch the Big Show vs. Sheamus match from Smackdown this week, Big Show delivers a K.O. punch to Sheamus while Sheamus is on the top rope. I watched this footage over and over again. Big Show does not slap his own leg, he does not slap his other hand, and he doesn't slap his chest. The slow motion replay video shows Big Show's closed fist connecting with the side of Sheamus's face. One possibility for the loud "punch" noise I thought might be Big Show snapping his fingers before he hits Sheamus. He definitely does not snap his fingers. I am puzzled. Does Sheamus just let Big SHow hit him that hard?
