Why can't Undertaker powerbomb or chokeslam the Big Show properly?

His chokeslams on Big Show don't even look good.

Why can't he hold Big Show in the air with one arm? and without Big Show jumping into it?

He cannot powerbomb either... WHY?

and Big Shows chokeslams on Undertaker look 3 million times better than Undertakers miniature chokeslam push down.

    I would like to see you Chokeslam or Powerbomb The Big Show. Then you will see how hard it is to lift up a 7ft Giant who weighs 450 lbs.

    Diesel (Kevin Nash), a man who s 7 1 and has weighed upwards of 350 lbs at points in his career, once tried to powerbomb Show, dropped him, and almost broke Show s neck. Nash has also succeeded at it a few times, to his credit. To my knowledge, Nash is the only person ever to bomb Big Show from a standard start. Undertaker s powerbomb, however, is not a release jacknife, but a full powerbomb with a lengthy delay between the lift and the drop. He also has thinner legs and smaller muscles than Nash (who is known to use steroids). The fact that Undertaker can hold Show on his shoulders for a sustained period of time is a testament to his strength, but he has his limits. The leverage due to their respective heights also probably plays a factor.

    On the chokeslam issue, every goozle requires a jump, and Big Show is no Michael Jordan, so Undertaker s lift is going to look weak. Similarly, Viscera is over 500 lb of mostly fat and has perhaps the worst chokeslam sell in wrestling history. It s mostly about the jump, and the rest is the attacker s ability to hold the person being slammed. You re talking about holding a 440-500 lb man in the air with essentially one hand. Even if you re 6 10, 300 lb, that s a near-impossible task. Show s goozle (chokeslam) on Undertaker also looks better because Taker s a former college basketball player and has an uncanny jump height for a man his size. Compare Big Show s slam on Taker to a Showstopper (Big Show s signature chokeslam) on Kane and you ll see that Kane doesn t get nearly as high or stay up nearly as long. That s a result of Undertaker s jump ability and Big Show s ability to hold him up. So Big Show s strength has a lot to do with the sustain of the hold, but the height is mostly up to the victim s jump. Taker s got hops, so his bump looks gold. On the other hand, Big Show has knee problems and can t get up very high, so anyone giving him a chokeslam is going to look weak.

    Big Show is a giant how can you blame the Undertaker for not doing it right? And Big Shows chockslams look better because all he has to do is pick up a guy half his weight Undertaker has to fight an uphill battle just to lift Show.

    remember this is a guy who is 7,2 500+ pounds(think hes put the weight back on)

    it would be impossible to lift bigshow with one arm lol, i mean bigshow needs to get a good jump in there.

    i agree big shows chokeslams look more devastating, he does his with ease so if ur not ready u are going up anyway.

    Its so obvious that the big show is heavier and stronger than the undertaker. give the dead man some credit for trying

    maybe because the Big Show is 400 pounds
