Experienced WWE star Big Show says he will 'never retire'

Having been a WWE superstar for many years now, it comes as no surprise that the crowd at several events have chanted about the idea of Big Show retiring on more than one occasion.

Having turned 43-years-old this year, it is fair to say that Big Show is one of the older performers on WWE's current roster.

But, in a recent interview with Michael Cole, he explained how he has no intentions of adhering to the crowd's words and retiring.

Staying put

His response when asked whether these retirement chants get under his skin was as follows:

"It amuses me. Why would I retire? Would that help the WWE Universe make the bad man go away? I'm not going to retire and nobody can make me retire. I've been in this busy for 20 years. I have fought, I have clawed, and I have dug to get to my position and to keep my position.

"Why would I give it up when I'm still making so much money and I'm still dominating? Why retire? Never!"

Clearly an adamant answer which proves that we will continue to see more of the World's Largest Athlete for some time to come, even if it is not to the approval of the WWE Universe.

Big Show also spoke about his upcoming triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship against Ryback and Miz at the Battleground pay-per-view event in St Louis on July 19th.

Determined contender 

It was clear that Show felt Miz should have no place in the match and believed it should be him alone to try and take the Intercontinental Championship Title belt off of Ryback as he felt Miz posed no threat whatsoever.

He added: "The best thing Miz can do is hide somewhere and pray that he doesn't get caught between Ryback and I and get torn in half."

The 43-year-old re-emphasised his determination to take down Ryback on his own as, when Michael Cole was explaining the injuries Ryback had suffered as well as the fact he was an alumni from WWE's Tough Enough reality show, Big Show responded with a number of sighs and sarcastic 'oh what a shame' comments.

On a more serious note, what we can take from this interview is that despite being in the business for over 20 years now, Big Show is displaying no signs of letting up as a professional wrestler in any way.

He still sells his character extremely well and even the fact that WWE had him as the interviewee at this point in time for this week's edition of the Wednesday interview, proves that he certainly still has a lot more to give to both the company and the WWE Universe.
