The Big Show hasn’t been on WWE television since the summer, but he’s certainly been making the media rounds, being ever the company man while getting in terrific shape, and regaling us all with wonderful and surprising stories. He’s preparing for a big WrestleMania 33 match against Shaq next year, and has gone on record as saying that this is going to be the final year of his career as an active pro wrestler.
In a recent interview with Digital Spy, however, Big Show walked back those retirement comments a bit. Basically, he’s going to keep being the Big Show: there if WWE needs him. When they asked him if he’s really really retiring after WrestleMania, for realsies, he had this to say:
“This is going to be a big media spectacle, once we start kicking off the angle, who knows what we’re going to do and who knows how we’re going to tie it together, how we’re going to make it work?
“I don’t see anything bigger than that happening for me in this stage of my career. I’m happy for the spotlight that I’m going to share with Shaq at WrestleMania and that’s that.
“If that’s the last opportunity, thank you very much, it’s been a fantastic time. If Vince comes up with something else, I’ll be there with a smile on my face and make that happen too.”
Vince? Come up with an idea involving the Big Show? Nah, that would never happen. The full interview with Big Show is extremely entertaining, as he goes in on pro wrestling fans who have bad opinions. That’s certainly nobody you know, of course. Click here to check it out.
