Dave Meltzer provided some insight into why Raw Superstar The Big Show was not involved in the 50-man Royal Rumble match at the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Show was one of the Superstars advertised to appear in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the Greatest Royal Rumble show late last week. However, he wasn’t there.

During the Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer had the following to say on why Show wasn’t available for the match:

“Big Show was injured about three weeks ago again he was coming back from his injury and he got reinjured. So that’s why he wasn’t in the match. I don’t know how severe but it was severe enough. They wanted him in this match you could tell because look at all those big guys they brought in and except for [the Great Khali] you know [Big Show] is the biggest guy.”

“But Big Show got hurt. Hopefully, it’s nothing serious.”

Wrestling Rumors will continue to update you as more information does become available on his status, and when he is expected to return to in-ring competition.

In the meantime, you can check out a recent appearance by Show on Raw, when he taught Big Cass to pick on someone his own size:
