WWE uploaded the first episode of their new ‘Film Room’ series on their official YouTube channel where host Michael Cole spoke to The Big Show about his ‘WrestleMania 24’ match against Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr.

For those who didn’t watch professional wrestling at that time, The Big Show returned from injury at a pay-per-view called ‘No Way Out’ which served as the precursor to the modern-day ‘Elimination Chamber’ or ‘FastLane’ PPVs in that it is the bridging show between the ‘Royal Rumble’ and ‘WrestleMania.’

At ‘No Way Out,’ Show cut a promo about being back and meaner than ever. This eventually prompted Mayweather to leave the crowd and come to the ring with his posse. This resulted in an altercation between the two men that ultimately resulted in their ‘WrestleMania’ match which made headlines around the world.

Below we have featured the episode of ‘FIlm Room’ where Show and Cole go into depth on the storyline and how it played out backstage and on screen. It is very much worth your time to hear what the two men had to say as veterans in the industry.
