It’s a big deal. Over the last few years, wrestling has become more and more mainstream. WWE has turned into a PG, family friendly company and that has allowed them to break into a variety of areas that they never would be able to reach before. This has included a deal to make movies with Netflix, but as it turns out, there is a little more to the deal for one specific person.
According to Sports Illustrated, Big Show will be receiving his own series for Netflix. The series, entitled the Big Show Show, will be a scripted show based on Big Show’s life as he will be retiring from the ring to become more of a father and husband. Production on the series will begin on August 9 with a premiere date to be announced. Big Show has dabbled in acting over his years, with a variety of roles in films and on television.
Big Show has been changing a lot as of late. Check out a clip from his WWE Network special:
Opinion: This could be interesting as Big Show does have an interesting story and has shown the ability to act before. I’m not sure how well the series will go but wrestling fans will likely check it out. If nothing else it will be nice to have a series involving a wrestler which isn’t a reality show for a change. Let them see what they can do and maybe it could go somewhere.
Will you watch the show? Who else in WWE should get a series of their own? Let us know in the comments below.
