This has a lot of good laughs in it. The Big Show is a natural comic. Plays a big goof who needs to save the day! Family friendly. Good show for the kids who like wrestling.
Shortly after Eddie (Mark Feuerstein) loses his new fighter and finds himself $50,000 in debt to longtime nemesis and bookie Memphis Earl (Dennis Farina), he discovers Walter (Big Show), a bumbling 7-foot, 440-pound, life-long resident of the orphanage-turned-handyman with his own debt problems: The kitchen fire Walter caused will close down the church's orphanage in a week unless he comes up with $50,000. Upon overhearing Walter's predicament, Eddie convinces the no-nonsense head nun, Sister Francesca that Walter can win the $100,000 grand prize at the tournament to pay off the church's debts. But in order to do so, he will need to take Walter on the road, enter amateur fights along the way, and teach him how to become a real fighter. Sister Francesca dispatches Mary (Melora Hardin) as a chaperone for both Walter and the money and gives Eddie a week and a prayer to make it happen.
