The Big Show is coming to the end of his WWE career, well, his in-ring career that is.

According to reports, The World's Largest Athlete will be taking more of a backstage role for the foreseeable future, along with fellow veteran Mark Henry.

Show hasn't been used in a meaningful feud on TV for some time now, and despite having a big WrestleMania match coming up, against basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal, it looks like his time in the ring is coming to an end.

With his duties in the ring decreasing over the past few months, Show has been doing for media duties for the company, and he's admitted himself he's more of an attraction rather than a superstar.

Speaking to Games Radar, Big Show went into detail why WWE were not using him as much anymore, especially on TV, and he admitted that he isn't needed anymore.

Show has been a long-serving superstar for World Wrestling Entertainment, making his debut back in 1999, but it looks like 'Mania next year could be his final appearance in the ring.

When asked about his decreased role in the ring, Show admitted that he's not needed as much anymore, and he also named four superstars that WWE can use instead of him.

Show's main attraction is his size, but he believes the likes of; Baron Corbin, Big Cass, Braun Strowman, and Erick Rowan can provide that now.

He said: “They don’t need me right now.

"They’re building Baron Corbin, Big Cass, Braun Strowman. Hopefully they’ll give Erick Rowan a chance because I’m a big fan of his.

"I’ve done everything I can do, and I have a big WrestleMania spot with Shaq coming up, so I’m sure in January we’ll kick that off and I’ll be back on TV more. For now they’re using me like they should: as an attraction.”

So as Show said, he should be on TV a lot more in the next few months, but after WrestleMania, it would come as no surprise if he wasn't seen again.
