Legendary WWE Superstar Big Show has signed a five-year contract extension which will keep him in the WWE until 2018.

Big Show, who made his WWE debut in 1999, had been out of action with an injury for three months before making his return last Monday on Raw and it now seems as though he will be around for the foreseeable future.

There had been some speculation regarding the future of Big Show due to the injury and his advancing age. However, this speculation has proven to be false as Show revealed he signed a contract extension in February.

Big Show, who stands at seven feet tall, is one of the most successful men in wrestling history having held every title in the WWE and being the only man in history to hold the WWE, World Heavyweight, WCW and ECW Championships.

Big Show has feuded with many of the biggest names in wrestling during his time in WCW and WWE, beating superstars such as Hulk Hogan, Sting, Ric Flair, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and John Cena.

Big Show will now be teaming with Mark Henry and Rob Van Dam to feud with The Shield, with a six-man tag team match reportedly set for the Night of Champions pay-per-view, where all the Shield’s championships will be on the line. If Henry, RVD and Show win, RVD will be crowned the new United States Champion and Henry and Show will be appointed the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
