Well, looks like many of us, myself included, were wrong about the rumors of Big Show retiring from in ring action. Big Show released the following statement earlier today:
“The rumors of me retiring are false. I actually resigned in January. I have a new contract, multi-year deal so I’ll be around for a while. This is not the end. For those of you that wanted me to retire, too bad so sad I’m still here. It’s a different role for me, I’m still competing in the ring. I do a lot more outside projects, a lot of projects for myself. It’s a good synergy WWE and I have put together. I’m looking forward to the future..”
As many know, Show has been out of action since September to undergo hip surgery. Reading into this, I think we will be seeing less in ring action from Big Show and hopefully more from outside the ring.
The Jester’s Take: I think this is great news as he has always been one of the most liked characters in WWE, even while playing a heel. I’m thinking that this also means we will be seeing him in one way or another sometime this week.
