Wrestlers Who Were Able To Body Slam The Big Show
Given the fanfare surrounding his WrestleMania III match with Andre the Giant, it made sense for "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan to be the first man to body slam The Big Show, known as The Giant at the time. The first instance of Hogan slamming The Giant came at WCW's "Halloween Havoc" in 1995, which happened to be The Giant's in-ring debut.

Like Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger was no stranger to body-slamming abnormally large men before he slammed The Giant. Luger found himself in a feud with The Giant over the WCW Championship that culminated at Starrcade in 1996, where he knocked The Giant off his feet with a neckbreaker before hoisting him for the body slam.

Sting, who came into his own during WCW's final years, is one of many who has body slammed the future Big Show on various occasions. Sting's first attempt at doing so at WCW Slamboree in 1996 was a failure, but he started his streak of bodyslamming The Giant at The Great American Bash in June 1998.
Bill Goldberg and The Giant were frequent opponents throughout 1998, especially in dark matches and house shows, wrestling on over 20 occasions. While the exact number of times he slammed The Giant is unknown, the most famous slam came during their second meeting on "Nitro" in October 1998.
Kevin Nash faced off with The Giant in a one-on-one capacity three times in WCW from 1998 on, with their most memorable match being Souled Out in 1998, where Nash botched a powerbomb and The Giant landed on his neck. Nash was finally able to slam The Giant during their third and final match on an episode of "Monday Nitro" in January 1999.
