The Big Show has been a pillar of the WWE since he joined them from then-fierce rivals WCW way back in 1999, but it appears as though the giant is on the verge of retirement.

Some fans have been playfully chanting for Paul White to hang up his boots for a few years now, but it appears as though the 44-year-old has the end in sight.

It was only a few weeks ago that the Big Show challenged Shaquille O'Neal to a battle of the goliaths at next year's WrestleMania in Orlando on the red carpet at the ESPY awards.

That could well be the seven-footers farewell match in the WWE after he revealed during a recent appearance on 790 The Ticket in Miami that he is focusing on making that match as great as it can possibly be.

According to Wrestlezone.com, During the interview, Show says around the 8:30 mark that he is getting into shape and is training for his match with Shaquille O’Neal at Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando. Show says he feels better at 44 than he did ten years ago, and he wants to be in the best shape he can and go out with a bang in his last year.

Show has literally done it all in his career. He is a seven-time world champion across the WWE, WCW and ECW, a grand slam champion and triple crown champion. He also defeated Hulk Hogan for the world title in his first ever match and faced Floyd Mayweather at WrestleMania.

He is undoubtedly one of the greatest big men to ever set foot in the squared circle and although his best days are probably behind him, it will be a sad day when Show finally calls it quits.
