Two Punters Put Money On 'The Big Show' To Sign For Chelsea

Two Punters Put Money On 'The Big Show' To Sign For Chelsea

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have paid two punters out after they decided to put money on WWE superstar 'The Big Show' to sign for Chelsea.

Antonio Conte was hellbent on buying a big target man in the January transfer window, with the likes of Peter Crouch, Andy Carroll and Edin Dzeko being linked with moves.

It was a peculiar state of events at Stamford Bridge and because of the transfer madness, punters decided to bet on Chelsea buying some odd names in the window, including 'the world's largest athlete' The Big Show at 500/1.

Paddy Power priced up odds on target men Nikola Zigic and Kevin Davies, who also came in at 500/1 on the market.

Former Borussia Dortmund striker Jan Koller, who was a giant at 6ft 7inch, was also priced at 500/1 while Tony Cascarino, Niall Quinn and Gary Doherty also featured in the pricing list.

But just as Bobby Zamora looked like the only option left for Chelsea, they went and bought Arsenal's Olivier Giroud for a reported £19 million.

"The Big Show knocks Heurelho Gomes to the ground with a trademark chokeslam. Stamford Bridge go wild as he removes the strap from his chest. He scored his fourth goal of the match from 6 yards. What a debut."
