WWE.com to Brisco Brothers: "What's the Damage?"

On the Feb. 8 edition of SmackDown, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio gave an unwelcomed facelift to both Big Show and his bus. Humiliation aside, it’s possible that The World’s Largest Athlete could feel whole again for the price of a giant bar of soap. But buying new tires for such a large vehicle? Getting a rushed paint job in time for WWE Elimination Chamber on Feb. 17? Fixing his super-sized ride could prove a lot more costly.

Always eager to help, WWE.com has provided the mountainous Superstar with an idea of what he might be in for. We asked WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco and Brisco Brothers Body Shop Inc. in Tampa, Fla., to give us rough estimates on some of the most famous automotive bash-ups in WWE history.
