With WWE Superstars dropping like flies throughout 2015, it is a wonder the organization has been able to put together a UK tour at all.
With the likes of Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, John Cena and Randy Orton (to name but a few) out of action for one reason of another, there is immense pressure on the rest of the main roster to step up.
Picking up the slack
And, according to one report today, it looks like that pressure is forcing one Superstar to fight through the pain and work with a serious sounding injury.

As reported by Dave Meltzer, speaking on Tuesday's Wrestling Observer Radio broadcast, Big Show is currently stepping into the ring with a "blown out knee."
Per the report:
"The Big Show is currently working with a blown out knee. Despite having the injury, he still worked a match against Roman Reigns on Monday's episode of RAW."
On the line
Despite closing in on his 44th birthday, and having had persistent knee issues throughout his career, it looks like Show is living up to his image as a company man by putting his body on the line - literally helping to keep the show on the road.
Still, the WWE surely have to be careful that they don't end up with another long-term casualty on their roster.
The plan remains for Big Show to work through the rest of the WWE's European Tour, but, considering the weight he is putting on the knee every night he steps out into the squared circle, it sounds like the veteran is a ticking time bomb right now.
