Big Show Signs Contract

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.
