He must have already had the record for being drafted, and if that's the case this will have increased it for him.
 
He gets bland quickly and changing brands for him doesn't freshen him up for long.
 
I'd have kept him where he was, where matches can be edited and it's easier to get over.

Probably my least favourite wrestler of all-time.

Disappointed that he's on Raw now too, if he'd have stayed on Smackdown w/ Blandy it would of been a near perfect draft because I could watch Raw without skipping huge chunks.

I'm guessing he'll be given another boring monster push.

Seems as a car ran over his leg he needs to be written off a couple of months to sell.
 
Knowing wrestling booking he will have made some amazing recovery and be back by the next PPV.
 
I found it dumb of him to try and stand up on his so called knackered leg.

I'm 90% sure this is a write-off for a legit injury. He didn't wrestle at all in the Tag match, lost the titles, and got written off. He's hurt.

Apparently Show has torn ligaments and Internal damage in his leg, if what was said on Superstars is anything to go by.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

One of my pet peeves over the years is showing a wrestler "Running to the ring" as many grapplers have had knee issues, etc and don't run well. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the Big Show moved when he ran to the ring Monday night. The big guy is dropping pounds and let's not forget that he was a former collegiate basketball player where running is a big part of the game.


I don't have a problem with the skinny guys doing it ...

But guys like Show aren't made for running ...

He did look good, and luckily he made it the whole way 2 the ring, but damn, that had 2 have been a workout for Showski ...

I hated how Bit Slow was looking on the positive side of what happened to him at TLC instead of being down about his chance passing him by.

Therefore for me the highlight was the last line Josh Matthews said and his scared expression for riling up the giant.

As well as being the shortest reigning heavyweight champion ever he should also be embarassed at his choice of shirt.

Yeah, it's time for Big Show to turn heel and go back to Smackdown.  Especially with Mark Henry banged up.  Let Big Show feud with Daniel Bryan for a few weeks.

Watched all of Raw and I was stunned Show didnt come out and decimate Bryan to close the show.
 
Josh Matthews FINALLY asked a good interview question and I look forward to Show (probably next week) turning heel and killing Bryan

A feud between Big show and Daniel bryan would suck balls. Atleast with Mark Henry we had an injury to make it slightly believable but even during the cage match, it was inevitable that Henry was going to catch him and crush him. A story with Big show will just be god awful with horrid booking to try and make the midget-weight look like a threat. Obviously this is not TNA where a situation like this would not be so ridiculous and the nearest comparison i can think of would be Abyss vs kendrick for the x-division title which was pretty much on my limit of plausability. I still see Kendrick winning as bollocks so take Bryan vs Show in a far less creative company and a much bigger size difference and you have something in the realms of ridiculousness that is reminiscent of Show vs mayweather minus the skill.

If it gets booked the way i think it will, i wouldn't see why show wouldn't march into the back and say you're making me look like an ASS!

This drives me nuts. Wrestling isn't supposed to be believable. 

Honestly -- you are passing up what is, for many, a dream feud between Rey and Show because it 'isn't believable'? The entire point of booking like this is to give wrestlers the opportunity to showcase something which is 'believable within the realms of the unbelievable'. So, you suspend your disbelief, and within THAT BUBBLE, you get something which works. 

Big Show/Mayweather was a great showcase match. Showcase matches are wrestling. David vs. Goliath is wresting.

I can suspend my disbelief for Rey v.s. Kane. Rey could conceivably be too quick for Kane, and that's what happened. I can suspend my disbelief for Show v.s. Mayweather. Mayweather is quick, and not above using all kinds of dirty tactics to win, and that's what happened. Face Daniel Bryan v.s. Crazy Heel Big Show, I cannot suspend my disbelief for.

With Daniel Bryan, it's his wits which count. His wits, the ability to play the slippery bar of soap, allowed him to stay alive in the cage against Henry (for a while). Why do you believe in the speed of Mysterio, the agility of Mayweather, but not the wiliness, smarts and savvy of Bryan?

Because when you are a third the size of your opponent, nothing other than running the fuck away, or beating him with something solid and metal, will save you from a beating. Even in referencing Kane v.s. Mysterio, Mysterio is only half Kane's size, I wouldn't buy it at all if he were to beat the Big Show, as there's no way a man that small jumping at a 500 pound man would do any damage.

Shouldn't we wait until we've seen the match? I mean, come on -- right now we're lambasting the notion of the match. If Bryan and Show are good enough, it'll be believable. Who's to say what tactics Bryan will use? We don't even know what type of champion he's going to be really. Not at this stage. He might totally stooge his way to victory.

I'm not totally disagreeing here. I'm ready to be wrong. The match might suck. I just question how you can't buy the notion of a match when :

A) we don't know how the WWE will book the fued
B) we don't know how the WWE will book the match
C) we don't know what kind of role both guys will be playing, and 
D) how you could buy Mayweather/Show, but not this. Mayweather is smaller than Daniel Bryan.

Let's just wait until after the match.

I do not buy the notion of a match between Big Show and Daniel Bryan under traditional rules at all, or under hardcore rules with Bryan as a face. If he is a heel, in a hardcore match or something similar, I could buy him eventually battering Show into submission. That's exactly what Mayweather did. And, Mayweather had already broken Show's nose, so obviously he could do damage. Unless Bryan is secretly Popeye, the way he's been booked since his feud with Miz suggests he couldn't do shit to Show.

The fact that you've written off the match before it even happens says everything about the IWC. No wonder there's so much negativity.  Whatever happened to being 'pleasantly surprised' by something? Professional wrestling isn't supposed to be realistic. You're supposed to ask yourself 'how the hell is he going to overcome the odds?'

Realistically, if a guy Daniel Bryan's size beat the shit out of a guy Big Show's size, it will be awesome. But professional wrestling isn't realistic, as you said, and I don't want to see tiny guys who aren't actually all that fast beating literal giants clean. If Daniel Bryan is a face, it can go one of six ways in a straight one-on-one match up.

One, Bryan cheats to win. Stupid booking for a clean-cut face, as Bryan is. Even more stupid booking if he suddenly develops an edge now he's World Champion, considering he never had it in his title chase.

Two, Bryan wins clean. I shouldn't have to explain why this is terrible.

Three, Bryan wins due to interference. If interference isn't seen coming a mile off (like with The Rock at Mania) it ruins PPV main events. The only interference I could see coming a mile off is Mark Henry, and prolonging the Show/Henry feud would be painful.

Four, Big Show cheats to win. Big Show shouldn't have to cheat to beat Daniel effing Bryan, considering the shitty mid-card heels who can do it regularly clean.

Five, Big Show beats Bryan clean. Bad idea, basically makes Daniel Bryan's title run (and by extension, Smackdown's MitB) a waste of time.

Six, Big Show wins through interference. Again, if it's not coming a mile off, it ruins main events, and there's nobody who would obviously go after Daniel Bryan.

DQs, count-outs and no contests are awful finishes to any title match unless it's a real blood feud, which this isn't.

Every possible ending to a match between the two, with Daniel Bryan as a face, is awful.

I get all that. I'm just saying it seems like a really closed-minded way of watching. 

'This way would be awful.'

'This way would be awful.' 

'This way would be awful.'

A MONTH BEFORE THE MATCH!

I'm just saying -- I now GET why the internet wrestling fans are never happy.

But if every potential ending to the match would be awful, and the match itself probably wouldn't be any good either, why would I have any interest in seeing it? The only reason Bryan is champion is ring skills, and they put him against The Big Show, that's a stupid idea in the first place. Big Show is decent on the mic, but not enough to carry Bryan, and Bryan is good in-ring, but there's no way he can pull a good match out of Show.

If Bryan is heel, I'll wait and see, but if he is a face, there is no possible way this match could be any good in any way, surely you see this? I mean, you still haven't explained a way in which this would not be terrible, you've just told me I'm to negative.

Because your way of loking at the situation tends to 'wash over' all the little intricacies of the match with an 'oh it's going to be awful' attitude. I wonder what happened to watching matches for the little touches. I took great delight in watching the Bryan/Henry cage match because Bryan looked fantastic. He played his role to a T. I'm not utterly convinced by his role in the company (a sentiment JTB etc. seem to echo), but I don't find myself altogether concerned with HOW he's going to win or lose, at least not this far in advance. I just look forward to the narrative of a match. The Big Show match is, for me, no different in this regard.

In your precognitive analysis of the match, you are way, WAY too negative. It's in plain sight:

To maybe give it a chance?

Then let him maybe surprise you with his ring skills?

Yeah -- because David vs. Goliath never works in professional wrestling.

Quote Big Show is decent on the mic, but not enough to carry Bryan, and Bryan is good in-ring, but there's no way he can pull a good match out of Show.

Absolute utter speculation. The match is a month away. You are clearly being negative, and this is clearly the paramount downfall of the IWC. Whatever happened to being pleasantly surprised, and evaluating a match/show based on its merits. It absolutely BAFFLES me how you can be this negative, and absolutely lambaste every nuance of a match A MONTH BEFORE IT HAPPENS. Absolutely mind-blowing.

Quote I mean, you still haven't explained a way in which this would not be terrible, you've just told me I'm to negative.

WHY DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY IT WON'T BE TERRIBLE? I'm not sitting here coming up with reasons why it will or will not suck. That's definitely what you seem to be doing. Personally, I think it's impossible to examine a match before it's occured.

Big Show is not a nuanced athlete. There are only a set number of narratives that could possibly happen within the match, and they WILL all end terribly. And ending WILL be terrible. Fact. There is no way that either man can come out of this looking better than before, and there is NO WAY a singles match between the two will be good on any level. Mark Henry is far more talented than The Big Show, there's no comparison.

There are no merits to a potential program between the two of them. At all. As I have already explained.

David vs. Goliath works for people like Rey Mysterio, who run around the ring until the other guy is gassed. Cunning and guile don't quite work the same way. And even then, David vs. Goliath is a 100-200 pound weight difference, not a 300-something pound weight difference. I can suspend disbelief, but not that much.

I don't know if you've been paying attention, but as far as I'm aware I haven't universally panned anything like this at least since you've been here, almost certainly longer, but there are no positives to this that I can see, and I've tried to look at it from every angle.

Nothing is fact until the match plays out. Anything could happen, and shitting all over this booking IS the kind of thing which gives the IWC a bad name. I think The Big Show is better than you give him credit for. I also think Bryan plays the underdog-in-peril role extremely well. Based on that, I'm predicting good things. I'm not saying it will be good. Since it's a while away, I'm going to wait and see.

The thing is, I'm totally opening to being wrong here. My issues is, like, 10% regarding the quality of the match, ad 90% that you seem to have labeled it a lost cause a month in advance. Nobody takes the IWC seriously because 'they've got everything figured out', and this is as huge a glaring example of that school of thought as I have ever seen.

this, and your general sweeping statement about IWC - as in any negative comments made on an internet forum makes you a part of the IWC - without any real explanation, but expecting explanation for the opinions of others is why, most times i read any posts of yours i'm already rolling my eyes.

let's be clear on WHY the timing was wrong. Bryan has been booked poorly. yes, he's had a couple of great matches with Henry, but he still lost, and hasn't won much since getting the briefcase. he's not been pushed, the angles for any matches he does appear in are usually very poor - Bret/HBK match with Kidd(?) being my prime example - and feuds that could look interesting - Sin Cara turning on him - are then forgotten and hot shotted.

As a face, he shouldn't have cashed in while the champ was down without any build. one tease that he MIGHT cash it in before Mania is not enough build, as is not having a decent winning streak, or even percentage.  if he were heel, instant heat. as a face, it's just confusing to the fans. i know when i read it, i was just scratching my head thinking "what the fuck?"

thing is, even if Henry weren't injured, the feud would have to be with Show anyway, as they're already given away 2 Henry/Bryan matches on free TV. As Henry now seems to be being pushed back down the card, it's not like he can even re-enter the picture at a later date and just remain a pissed off huge muthafucker in the mean time, which again limits the list of opponants for Bryan

will Smackdown survive a Bryan/Show title match? of course, it survived Swagger's poorly booked run, but you're also asking why would anyone want to see this match just to see it? Raven's views are his own, but those views mean that he would be one person not buying the PPV that the match is on.  if other people feel the same, they will also not buy the PPV, because it's not the idea of what could actually happen in the matches that has people booking them, it's their expectations of the talent on the card.

Except he DID develop that edge by using Money in the Bank the way he did in the first place. Which I believe Mark Henry and Big Show pushed him to by Henry trying to put him in the Hall of Pain every week and Big Show actually PRODDING HIM TO DO IT.

Christian has pinned Mark Henry clean in the pa--oh wait, that was terrible too. I really need to remember the Aaron Alliance playbook more often. How do you know Bryan won't come out with another submission Big Show hasn't seen him use before that he can actually beat Big Show with?

Can we rule this out? I can't remember the last time Big Show needed to cheat to win, even in his last run as a heel where he was aligned with Edge and Vickie, Jericho, and Miz.

You said this one on number three. MARK HENRY. He lost the world championship at TLC just as Big Show did. He wants that title back ASAP just as Big Show does.

You know what is a blood feud? MARK HENRY. Let him cause that DQ/no contest and end up getting a title shot of his own, most likely in a three-way. And that's assuming the Royal Rumble title match isn't a three-way itself. And in a three-way, it's EASY to have Bryan retain believably. Have one of Big Show or Henry get the other with a finisher. Bryan gets on the turnbuckle out of nowhere and comes off with a big missile dropkick out of nowhere to knock the one out of the ring, then gets the other with a pin or submission. He wins the match, Booker and Lawler can go on about the resourcefulness and courage of "ma boi D-Bryan". There you go.

I dont get what you are saying here, because whether he is a heel or face, hes still the same wrestler in style.

I agree that Danielson winning would be ridiculous and Mark Henry would have to carry him to a decnt match, but he isnt automatically better as a heel.

That kind of outright negative speculation just doesn't make any sense to me AT THIS POINT.

Quote without any real explanation, but expecting explanation for the opinions of others is why, most times i read any posts of yours i'm already rolling my eyes.

This is an unfair example to use; my claiming I need not explain was due to the fact that the quality was called a month in advance. Usually I explain everything thoroughly.

But it's okay. Nobody is pissy. We'll just wait and see.

Sorry if my posts make you roll your eyes. Not my intention . . . honestly. Happy posting!

I dont understand this arguement, I really dont. If any little wrestler can have as realistic a match against a giant like Big Show its Daniel Bryan. Mysterio is a little high Flier who cant do nothing against a 500 LB man becauuse everytime Mysterio flies, Big Show would catch him.
 
Bryan can target any limb Show has and chop the Giant down to size with a hit and run attack as well as first class submission holds on the giant.
 
Im not saying it'll be a great feud hell it'll probably be a passable feud at best, but if any little guy can have a realistic match as possible with Show it would be D Bryan

I'd not expect to see Big Show back on our screens now until July time just in time for some Summerslam build up.

I've not read of him being injured so it's probably just one of his annual holidays he gets these days.

I've seen on another forum a thread of people talking about how awesome it will be when Show turns up in TNA now he's been fired.

Far too much time was given to Show being fired. We didn't have see him crying for so long while the commentators stayed quiet.

Whenever Show looked like going on his knees to beg the crowd started getting louder as they didn't want him to, which is strange when they wanted him to keep his job.

The people shouting in the crowd should have been asked why if they are a Big Show fan they didn't want him on his knees to save his job.

because it is humiliating .... hence show saying "dont make me do that"
 
the whole big show firing scene though was far far too long .. it was ridiculous.
 
However it did its job in the way that it got jonny more heat and also sets up a possible interference in the OTL match with jonny and cena

I'm sorry but Damn! Big show crying in the middle of the ring really was the worst thing i have ever seen in my many years of watching wrestling.

I've seen alot of bad segments like the John cena LOSER! Segment but this took way to long and it really made it sad to watch because it dragged FOREVER!

I say this will happen Big show will interfere in the John Cena Vs Johnny Ace, cena will lose then we'll see another boring ass big show vs cena feud. Why would they fire big show on THE GO HOME SHOW!? I can't take big show seriously anymore after this storyline or not.

Since the Big Show is "loveable" smiles, kisses babies, etc. This was the second best way to generate heat for Ace, which number one woulda just been to fire Cena or back out of the match, he is also the best crier in WWE...

And you took Show seriously in the first place? This is a guy who WWE has been using in some of the most god awful ways since mid 2000, Then they put him in a feud with Cody Rhodes,  who imho is among the top talents in WWE, for the Intercontinental Title and have him win it which made absolutely no sense, only to have him drop it back when for some really stupid reason that creative expects us to buy, Show needs to climb up on a table to get back into the ring....in the words of the great Minnesota Viking wide reciever Chris Carter....C"MON MAN!!!!

Its basically time for Big Show's heel turn, he goes face/heel about every 6-18 months and was well overdue.  Though I basically see him being the one to destroy Cena during the PPV to get his job back and then become a muscle for Ace to use on a regular basis.

For such a veteran of the business to be so shit at executing a simple finisher is a joke.

Has the so called dominance of Big Show recently been as good as it's been made out to be? I wouldn't think so.

Jerry Lawler even said he had never seen him as dominant before even though in the past he's won shitloads of major titles in the industry.

All he's done is attack little black guys like Truth and Kingston. Hardly anything to be proud of.

Creative aren't inept, they made me care about Mark Henry as a main event beast, why they can't do the same with this guy is beyond me.

Seems like he fails in every major storyline he's given, but on the undercard he's fairly class, ie; Jerishow, ShowMiz, vs Rey, vs Mayweather, etc.

That was impressive booking of Show for him to win in like four minutes against Kane in those match conditions.

His Spear at Kane holding a steel chair was one of the most impressive things Show has done in ages.

Credit to creative for doing a very good job of booking him as we head towards MITB.

not a bad match for what it was, until the SuperCena comeback. thing is, cena is surely at the point now where it would not harm his character at all to have a clean loss.

While he's still an heel Show has lost his early purpose and has once more become a bit part player.

Nobody believes he will be facing The Rock so having him getting involved in Punk/Cena stuff is pointless.

He should stop being put in main events as well because they are supposed to be decent matches yet he can't last too long.

He lost a match, showed he can't work as a team and hardly spent any time in the ring. Weak booking.

I wouldnt put Shows reign anywhere near the level that mark henrys was at. Henry was defending it time after time and was brutally taking people out - big name people - he wasnt waiting for them to be in the middle of the match and throwing a sneaky punch in to knock them out.

The matches show and sheamus have had have been exceptional but i just dont think this title reign is on that level

his 2 matches with Sheamus for the title have blown everything else out of the water that he has done this past year.
 
this is the best Big Show there has really been in WWE ever. this is what he should have been against Cena.
 
yes, the promos have let him down, especially the debate when his podium collapsed and they had to improve the rest, but in the ring, he has only really disappointed me with the match with Khali, and no one can have a good match with Khali now.

Big Show represents everything the World Heavyweight Championship should be; big, huge, unstoppable, and mean. He's a giant, obviously he's going to get judged differently than someone at 6'6 250 lbs. No one can move around like Big Show at that size, not even Andre was that good.

I mean look at Great Khali compared to Big Show. Big Show is exponentially greater than Great Khali in the ring. Andre was one hell of a great character, but as age took it's toll he turned into Great Khali in the ring. Big Show is arguably a character every bit as good as Andre was, and really can still go.

He's taking superplex sized bumps, he's doing drop kicks off the top rope, I mean seriously, what more do you want from a guy like that? Would you like to see him put someone in the sharpshooter? If he did that and farted he'd break the guy's spine in two. So he's the big slow behemoth that you don't take off his feet easily, and when you do it's a sign you're winning.

You can't get better than that with a giant, and Big Show is as good as they'll ever get, and a giant is always a hot commodity in pro-wrestling. Honestly, any and every 7'+ guy weighing over 400 lbs that can keep from killing his opponent in the ring, and can keep clean, and keep up with the schedule, and especially if he can work a mic would be given a million dollar contract in the WWE and TNA and anywhere else that could afford that kind of athlete.

What I find deplorable is that the world heavyweight championship had never been held for any extended period of time by The Big Show in the WWE until now. He is the poster boy for that title, and it's about time he's given a title run with that belt, and I hope he holds it and is booked strong for quite some time to come. That's the belt he wore as The Giant with WCW, that Goldberg, Hollywood Hogan, Kevin Nash & others wore. That's the title that HHH, & Batista wore. By the time Big Show's title run is over, his name should be synonymous with that title or WWE dropped the ball with Big Show.

Can someone explain what was wrong with the larger chair? It sounded far more impactful both when Show demolished Sheamus with it, and when Sheamus used it on Show last night on Raw. He's 440lbs and a destructive (due to his fantastic recent push) monster, the force he could apply with that chair in kayfabe made complete sense.

Way to suspend disbelief. Ill give it to your point Hashtag that it was different but damn, that isnt the kind of different i prefer. It was just too campy for a "Brutal" WHC chairs match. I get that Show could have that done because of his size but i just found it ridiculous.

The KO punch to end shit always looks fucking brutal. He should've stuck with that imo.

As for last night, Show and Sheamus didnt really get any love from the crowd. I thought it was an ok segment and i was surprised when Sheamus came to actually shake his hand. You had to know Show was going to do what he did but i thought he was going to shake then try to pull him into the KO.

Lol that chair even looked too enormous for Show when he was carrying it. Straight outta the cartoons. I think he had Wyle E. Coyote's Acme card.

Wasted start to Raw because someone stupidly thought Show knocking out the irritating Matt Striker would get him heel heat.

Then you had him doing his constipated face and not speaking for ages which dragged and was boring.

Not even the announce team said anything when they could have tried to make the situation more bareable.

Seriously how is randomly attacking guys that never appear on Raw supposed to help get him additional heat? I'm sure there was plenty of kids that had no idea who Alex Riley or Yoshi Tatsu ever were. How long ago was either man's last Raw appearance? A lot of people would like to punch Matt Striker so  hitting him did no good. Beating up guys that the fans don't care about is a waste of time.
 
This feud is bordering on bad comedy at the moment. WWE desperately needs to abort this.

I sincerely hope what's been happening the past couple of weeks isn't leading to ANOTHER turn by him.

It would be quite awesome if he stayed heel but teamed with a couple of babyface guys like Orton/Sheamus to lose to The Shield.

Then to keep his heel heat he can knock them both out after the match for losing.

A "semi" truck is probably apt for a guy of his height and weight.

It's still not been explained why a guy with an iron clad contract got fired in the first place.

Nor as it been explained why a guy who didn't give a shit about anyone is all of a sudden showing some heart and actually bursting into tears at things he has to do.

Yeah, Steph said some nonsense about Big Show failing to maintain his obligations & that invalidated his contract. I'm with Lenny, they didn't think this thru ahead of time. 

Honestly, I think they haven't known what to do with him since the planned tag team with Mark Henry got sidelined when Henry got re-injured. I suspected that Show & Henry were going to win the TTC from the Shield but WWE had to punt and this is what we ended up with. 

While I'm glad Big Show is no longer crying every time he comes out... I still prefer him playing the heel more than the giant teddy bear part. And would much rather see him in tag team than as a single.

I'm happy at the return of the most bi polar booked superstar on the roster because he's a legend and good at enhancing talent.

I hope he's kept babyface for the foreseeable, but if history has taught us anything about him he will be heel, babyface and back to heel again before Summerslam 2017.

He looks in great shape, clearly been busy in his time away from the ring. The beard sucks though LOL

He's in the best shape I've seen him in since his WCW days, I think this is probably in part due to his limited ring schedule affording him the time to take better care of himself, possibly his age and years of wear and tear on his body were factors as well.

His best value now is as a high level enhancement talent, keep his appearances few and far between but when a talent needs a strong win have Big Show put them over. For example if Braun Strowman were to score a dominant win over Show this would really establish him as a monster heel.

In any rate I think there's a good chance this will be Big Shows last year as a active wrestler but he will likely continue as a ambassador for the company after his retirement.

He's arguably in the best shape of his career as he's basically walking out the door. Where was this guy for the last 20 years?

I agree with the idea that his ultimate goal should be putting the next generation over..I do think he still has one more run left in him as a serious competitor. I think they should build up some equity with him and eventually have someone knock him down when the time is right.

Right now I don't think it means much to beat the Big Show, but if they can get some solid wins under his belt then someone can benefit down the road.

He continues to look in fantastic shape, when in the past he's got in similar shape it's been a short term thing. Obviously got more willpower to stick to it these days, so credit to him.

The bump with the ring collapsing will have hurt him even in the shape he's in, after all the years of wear and tear.

Nice to read about the thank you Big Show chants that made him emotional. He'd have loved feeling appreciated by the live crowd for what he did for them taking that bump, in that spot.

He deserves far more love than the shit "please retire" chants he used to get.

What a guy. He put in a fantastic main event on Raw, one of the best performances probably of his career and deserves all the well earned praise he gets.

The guy is a 45 year old 7 ft giant who's put his body through over two decades of way more pain than most guys will have felt due to his size and yet he's still willing to throw in a diving elbow drop off the ropes and be thrown through a cage to make someone else look good.

Lets be right he doesn't need to stick around as a multi millionaire who's probably in constant pain. But he still loves the business, doesn't appear to have a ego and when used like this to elevate someone else he is handy to have around as long as he's not over exposed by being around every week.

Good use of Big Show this week, he's now 47 but being used as a occasional attraction in a big match setting is fine.

The match was short and sweet this week but I enjoyed the show long build to it and it will be interesting to see what the rules of the fist fight are for next week.
