SoBe Promoter Wants a Piece of WWE's Big Show

SoBe Entertainment steps in the legal ring with wrestler over $2 million

Paul Wight is not used to being challenged. At 7-feet, and nearly 500 pounds, who would be dumb enough to take on the WWE's Big Show?

A bunch of South Beach promoters and their attorneys, that's who. SoBe Entertainment is suing Wight for $2 million for a business deal gone bad that was supposed to launch Wight's boxing career, according to court documents filed in Miami-Dade court on Monday.

SoBe Entertainment also represents Brooke Hogan, daughter of wrestling icon, the immortal Hulk Hogan. The lawsuit alleges Hogan helped Wight approach the company.

According to the lawsuit, Wight signed a deal in 2007 that would have had SoBe Entertainment represent "the world's largest athlete" through 2012. The lawsuit also claims the company fronted Wight $1 million to buy a home in Coral Gables. And yes, they want that back, too.

Obviously the deal went sour and Wight was been fee-fie-foeing his way through the WWE universe choke-slamming his way to titles under the management of self-proclaimed gazillionaire Vince McMahon.

While the lawsuit doesn't go after McMahon, it does claim the WWE "tortiously interfered" with the contract and used knowledge of Wight's boxing aspirations to stage a show involving boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather and the Big Show at Wrestlemania XXIV.

SoBe Entertainment "demands a trial by jury." We're sure the Big Show will be pushing for a steel cage match.
