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.

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.

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

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'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'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.

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

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 think with the Whole Iron Clad thing, I think Stephanie mumbled something about breach of contract would mean the Iron Clad Contract was worthless or some B/S because they didn't think it through enough
We bashed the door in. The bad guy was a dick. I shot him

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.
