He has other things to do, including on Netflix. We have so many things going on, or not going on in some cases, in wrestling these days, there are all kinds of openings for something else outside of the ring. There are all kinds of stories that can be told and as it turns out, a lot of them have already been done in advance, which is something that we will be seeing in the coming weeks.
There are very few wrestlers in history who have been as unique as Big Show. In short, just look at him and you can see everything that you need to know about him. Yes he has been around for a very long time now, but at the same time, he is someone who works a bit better for people who have never seen him before. Big Show is an attraction by definition, but it turns out that he has something else to offer.
WWE has released a trailer for Big Show’s new sitcom the Big Show Show, which will debut on Netflix on April 6. In the series, Big Show will play an exaggerated version of himself, as a wrestler whose career is winding down and he has to spend more time with his family. Big Show has acted before, including the lead role in the WWE Studios original movie Knucklehead.
This has potential. Check out what will be coming in the first season:
Opinion: This may not be your cup of tea but there is something cool about having Big Show getting a chance to display his acting abilities. At the end of the day, it is going to be a WWE style production, but maybe someone will see him and think there is a little more to him than just his size. If nothing else, Big Show playing himself should work well and the series could get in a few laughs here and there.
