Flight With WWE Superstars Forced To Make Emergency Landing In Colorado
It isn’t very often that flights have to detour and make an emergency landing, and when they do so, it can be quite scary. This was the case for WWE Superstar Sheamus and his flying buddy, Big Show, this Wednesday on a United Airlines Flight.
If you are wondering what the oxygen masks overhead are for, well, we can tell you. Typically, if a plane descends faster than it should, it can cause pressure buildup in the cabins, making it hard to breathe. However, on this particular flight, that’s not what caused the issue.
It all started after the Smackdown recordings were finished on Tuesday night. Sheamus and Big Show were both hungry, but they needed to make it to the airport quickly so as not to miss their flight. The solution? Drive Thru Chinese Food.
One of the benefits of having a driver is that you can sit back and relax, eat, drink, etc while they get you to your destination, and on this night that’s exactly what Sheamus and Big Show did. They sat back and ate. Sheamus, he had a little bit of rice and some egg rolls, but Big Show? Well, according to Sheamus:
“We pulled up at the drive thru and I ordered some fried rice with a couple of egg rolls. Show, however, he ordered a large Beef with Broccoli, Sesame Chicken, Mongolian Beef, and some Hot & Sour Soup. I tried to tell him that he couldn’t eat all of that before getting on a flight but he wouldn’t listen. He scarved it all down before we made it to the airport, and everything seemed fine.”
But, as it turns out, everything was not fine. Once they boarded their flight and got in the air, Big Show started showing signs of an upset stomach. Cabins in first class have slightly bigger toiletries, and so Big Show, whom apparently never learned anything from Andre The Giant, decided to go relieve himself.
“This is when it got nasty, mate. I was sitting me ‘arse in the seat when I heard a loud moan, followed by a ‘Oh God, No’ and what sounded like a low rumbling engine blowing a gasket. ” That low rumbling engine sound was Big Show letting one rip. The smell was so bad within the washroom that Show had no choice but to open the bathroom door, and when he did, he damn near caused a plane wreck.
“The flight attendants started telling everyone please stay in their seats,” said one woman that was interviewed. “You could see them holding their breath, but there was nothing anyone could do.” That is, until the flight attendant made the mistake of opening the cockpit doors. Upon doing this, the smell, so rotten, infumed the cockpit and the plane pitched forward, taking a nose dive at the ground. This is when the masks fell out and everyone placed one over their heads so they could breathe.
The worst part? Big Show hadn’t flushed the toilet as of yet, and so feces were now all over the bathroom. “It was devastating, I tell you,” says Sheamus. “I will never fly with Big Show again, not if he eats before getting on a plane.” The plane had to make an emergency landing at Colorado International. Not to worry, however, as almost everyone were fine, as evidenced by Sheamus’ latest tweet:
The one thing we can say for sure is that Big Show should have taken the advice from the guy in the movie Surf Ninjas: “Whatever you do… don’t eat the chicken.”
