WWE: Big Show told to retire by rowdy NXT fans

Published 13 Comments

For some odd reason, WWE superstars appeared during the recent NXT live event in Columbus, Ohio.

NXT Fire Back

As you can probably imagine, they got booed out of the building. For NXT's first ever show that didn't take part in Florida, Big Show and Ryback had a 'WWE Showcase' match that was not well received by fans.

In fact, according to a report from Wrestling Inc, the boos and negative chants that Big Show received were so loud that the match will probably not be show on TV.

Please Retire

As usual the NXT crowd was as vocal and pumped as they always are, despite being out of Florida for the first time ever. And unfortunately it was Show that felt the wrath of these fans and experienced what it was like when they turn.

Big Show was met with "please retire" chants. Show then apparently replied to those chants by saying his contract has 10 more years left on it. This brought on a "10 more years" chant from the rowdy NXT crowd. Other chants included "we want Divas" and "same old chant."

Show seemed to take it well though, tweeting out that he had fun in the ring, which according to reports was actually a really good match between the giant and Ryback. 

This does smack of the old-school Vince McMahon style of wrestling compared to the fast-paced action that Triple H has displayed so far in charge of NXT.

It seems that today's wrestling fan is much more inclined to like those high flying, big impact wrestlers than the big guys that McMahon has fetishized for pretty much his entire career in control of the WWE.
