There is no doubt about it, the WWE is going through some fairly significant changes right now.

From the arrival of a host of new, up-and-coming talent to the main roster and the impending brand split, to the raft of recent releases, there are signs of a changing of the guard in the biggest wrestling promotion in the world.

And, as the WWE continues its path towards a 'New Era', one of the organisation's longest-serving Superstars appears to be contemplating his future in the business.

Speaking to The Miami Herald this week, The Big Show admitted that, while his heart will always be with WWE, he has begun to make plans beyond the company he has been a part of since 1995:

"All great things come to an end," explained 'The World's Largest Athlete'. "So for me I’m looking at projects outside of WWE and maybe moving into something else in the future.

"But my heart is with WWE. I love helping the younger talent. I love representing WWE like with Make-A-Wish, Be a STAR, Special Olympics. I think I’ll always have a home in WWE.”

There has been speculation about Big Show's future in the WWE for a few years now and, at 44 years of age and with over two decades in the promotion behind him, there are question marks about just how much longer he can perform at the top level.

His comments today suggest he knows that just as well as the rest of the WWE Universe. 

Big Show was in the World Heavyweight title picture as recently as late 2015 but has seen his role reduced in recent months.

No regrets

With the WWE ushering in a 'changing of the guard' right now, it looks like the future Hall of Famer knows his days are numbered.

"I’ve had a great career and had a lot of fun. So whatever happens in the future, I’m gonna take it," he said.

"If I get a phone call tomorrow, and Vince [McMahon] says, ‘Thank you very much. I appreciate everything you’ve done.’ Well, that said, I can hold my head high and go on and do other things.

"I don’t want to ever look back and say, ‘I wish I could have,’ or ‘I wish I would have.’ I’m just a guy who is very thankful. I still have my health, and I still get a chance to do something I love every now and then.”

Knows his role

While he may have been forced to contemplate retirement plans in light of the influx of new talent recently, that doesn't mean Big Show holds any resentment towards to the 'new era' superstars.

In fact, he appears to be enjoying dishing out advice:

"It’s a changing of the guard. I came in as the youngest in the locker-room by 10 years in 1995, and now I’m one of the old ones still out there.

"I get to go out on weekends and do the live events and help some of the younger kids not make the same mistakes that I made and help them along.”
