During his time with the WCW, he held the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice and got his hands on the WCW World Tag Team Championship three times with three different partners.

In 1999, WWE and Wight were again in talks and Vince McMahon wanted to make no mistakes. Hence, he signed a ten-year contract and thus began the era of the Big Show.

His first title contention in the WWE was for WWF Championship against the Undertaker. Show and Undertaker wrestled in a brilliant match which was stopped by the referees after the two had brutally attacked each other. As a result, The Deadman got to keep his title. Not long after that, Both Big Show and the Undertaker teamed up to take on X-Pac and Kane. Interestingly, Big Show won the WWF Tag Team Title twice with the Undertaker as his partner.
