WWE: Big Show doesn't look to be retiring anytime soon

Published 8 Comments

Despite being 43-years-old and with the WWE Universe often voicing encouraging chants to do so of late, it seems Big Show will not be retiring anytime soon.

One of the biggest and strongest athletes on WWE's roster has been linked with coming to the end of his career in recent months.

Given his recent booking at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event event as well as on Monday Night Raw following it, the giant seems to be doing everything but retiring.

Ongoing feud

Big Show is currently written into an ongoing feud with the Intercontinental Champion Ryback, with The Miz also involved in the same angle.

The Big Guy and The Miz are by no means lower-card performers at WWE, prompting the idea that Big Show is still at a higher point of his professional wrestling career, as well.

During this week's edition of Monday Night Raw, Big Show put on an impressive display against Ryback which, despite the latter eventually gaining the win, seemed an even more exciting match than that at SummerSlam.

As The Miz was on commentary this time around as opposed to being involved in the Triple Threat match, it gave Big Show more of a chance to be prominent in the ring, which he certainly was. 

If this was not enough to demonstrate his ability to perform well still, Big Show grabbed a mic mid-match in order to put down yet more chants by the crowd in attendance encouraging him to retire.

As Fansided reports, he retaliated with: "Do you want me to retire?...Find somebody to come and retire me then, because there ain't nobody here who can do it." 

Undoubtedly confident words from the giant but given the way the company has booked him of late, it seems WWE have the same opinion as the man himself.

Incredible match-up

In addition, as Wrestling Inc reports, Big Show has been revealed as Brock Lesnar's opponent at the Madison Square Garden WWE Network special in just over a month's time.

With a lot of speculation over who Lesnar's opponent was going to be, many may question WWE's decision but we will be sure to see an incredible match between these two huge superstars.

The pair have a surprisingly long history and given that this will only be The Beast's fifth match of 2015, Big Show's regular in-ring time could well benefit him.

That said, the outcome of this match may already be clear but it is another aspect which underlines the belief that Big Show is surely sticking around for a while and will not be retiring anytime in the near future.
