Monday night saw Kevin Owens get a match booked for Seth Rollins to soften up the Architect. Who was Owen’s muscle? None other than the World’s Largest Athlete, the Big Show.
Seth and Big Show had a match, and, uh… Yeah, that was basically it. Show was looking as svelte as he had in years, and ended his appearance by giving a chokeslam to Owens and walking out of the ring, losing via count-out. Seth took the opportunity to also deliver a pedigree.
If you’re cynical, you might say there’s nothing more appropriate for Big Show than turning heel and face again in the same match. But in fairness, he was just a hapless guy who happened to be the pawn Owens picked to soften up Seth, turning on Owens because, well, KO was being a jerk.
Big Show had a few words after the match, where he said we can expect to see a lot more of him soon.
He hasn’t been on TV in ages, but Big Show is still an institution on the house show circuit, where he’s been having “Body Slam Challenges” with Braun Strowman. Expect that feud to hit the televised show sooner rather than later.
