8 Biggest Chop Masters In Wrestling History

8. The Big Show

Big Show's chops are a little bit different from those of other individuals on this list. Instead of executing a backhand chop, Show does an overhead chop that looks a bit more like a slap than it does a chop. But the small differences in technique don't really matter in the grand scheme of things; when Big Show's frying pan-sized hands make contact with your skin, it's going to leave a nasty mark and it's going to hurt like hell.

Big Show has taken advantage of this and has incorporated the corner chop into his regular repertoire. Whether he's working as a face or as a heel, Show has a tendency to force his opponent into a corner, hush the crowd, and chop his opponent in the chest as hard as possible. 

As you can see from the video above, the impact is so devastating that it leaves a noticeable hand print in Swagger's chest.

Former WWE referee Jim Korderas once told a story where he was playing a drunken game with some WWE superstars, and he found himself on the receiving end of a Big Show chop. As Korderas was removing his shirt, Show told him something along the lines of 'you better move that crucifix, or it's going to be permanently implanted in your chest'.

Show's chops are truly terrifying, to be sure.
