Wrestling ring collapses as huge WWE stars are locked in epic battle (video)
The wrestling ring bore the brunt of two huge WWE stars engaged in an epic battle on Monday.
The duel between the Big Show and Braun Strowman, who are both 7-foot giants, took a toll on the wrestling ring – it collapsed.
During the fight Big Show got on to the top rope and Strowman attempted a suplex – that is, lifted his opponent and brought him down using his own weight.
The ring could not take the combined weight of the two and crashed.
The referee could sense that a tremor was developing and tried to get a grip on the ropes to secure himself. But the collapse threw him outside of the ring.
As the ring collapsed, announcer Michael Cole shouted, 'You've got to be kidding me!'
Media reports said Big Show has been involved in collapsing rings in at least two occasions earlier.
