Big Show Talks Retirement, Comments on Wrestling Without an Audience

The Big Show recently gave an interview with TV Guide where he talked about his Netflix shows and his career as a wrestler going forward.

The Big Show has been a wrestler for 25 years now but given as he’s now having rather successful forays as a TV actor, people are questioning how long he’s still going to go in the ring.

According to Show, retiring from in-ring competition is not something that’s on his mind, but “it’s always there.”

“I’m not a spring chicken anymore,” said Show. “I have to see where our business evolves and see where I can fit in and still be an asset.

According to the Big Show, he has already talked to Vince McMahon about his role in the company and what he might still be able to contribute.

“If it gets to a point where it’s time to say goodbye, then I will step back and work more behind the scenes,” said the Big Show.

Big Show’s last appearance in a wrestling ring was during the July 20 episode of Raw where he confronted Randy Orton over Orton’s actions against Edge and Christian. He lost an Unsanctioned Match against Orton.

Show also commented on what it felt like wrestling the match without a live audience and according to him it was a bit of an adjustment. He’d talked to other wrestlers and they agreed it was a change that needed to be gotten used to.

“The feeling that I’m getting from talking to the other talent is everybody’s improving. At first it was really awkward but now your focusing more on what you’re doing between the ropes and honing those skills,” he said.

“I can’t wait to walk down the ramp in front of 20,000; 50,000; 100,000 people again,” said Show.
