We are seeing a new era being ushered in to the WWE right now.
It is an era led by the likes of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose - three young and hungry superstars who all have the potential to be the faces of the company. And then there is NXT which is constantly producing new stars every month.
Which is why some of the old guard of the WWE might start to disappear over the next few years, one of whom looks set to be The Big Show.

Big Show recently spoke with Digital Spy to promote WWE Studios' Vendetta and he admitted that he is transitioning from wrestling to more work as an actor in TV and cinema.
"I think absolutely. I've had a fantastic career - I'm still competing on a full-time schedule, but nothing good lasts forever," Show told Mayer Nissim. "So eventually I'm going to have to transition out of this industry and do something else that's entertaining and exciting for me."
"Am I a little sad that my wrestling career is towards its end? Well, yeah, because this has been my life for 20 years."
Show then went on to add that he could see himself taking a reduced/part-time load and being slowly phased out of the main roster, only to be brought back on special occasions, like a Royal Rumble.
"I think that's one of the things that will happen to me eventually," Show said. "I'm going to start not being on our programming as much, not being on TV every week. Hopefully when I do get a chance to come back, I'll be able to have a little bit more impact and a little bit more fun."
"I've had a great career with it and been very happy, I'm not complaining, but I think as I'm getting older - I'm 43 now - I don't wanna be on the road five days a week anymore. I really don't."
So farewell to the Big Show. He's got a couple of years left as a full-time star before we see him leave, so enjoy it, that's what he is trying to do.
