What’s the story?

In a recent appearance at the New York Stock Exchange, Big Show revealed that he has indeed signed a new deal with the WWE.

Apparently, The World's Largest Athlete addressed the ongoing rumours of his retirement. Besides, the timeline of his new deal was also briefly discussed.

In case you didn’t know…

Big Show (real name—Paul Wight) broke through in the professional wrestling industry as “The Giant”; performing for WCW from 1995 until his departure from the promotion in 1999.

The World’s Largest Athlete signed with the WWE in 1999 and has stayed with the company ever since, barring a brief hiatus in 2007.

The heart of the matter

During his visit to the New York Stock Exchange, Big Show asserted that he has signed a new contract with the WWE.

Additionally, he emphasised that his new WWE contract is a multi-year deal, however, he didn’t specify the exact number of years it’s valid for.

Furthermore, in light of several rumours regarding Big Show’s WWE contract having run out this February as well as the former WWE Champion retiring, he insinuated that he’s set to work with the WWE and isn’t going to retire anytime soon—


What’s next?

The vast majority of professional wrestling experts believe that Big Show could perform at this weekend’s WrestleMania 34 PPV—with the highly-awaited annual show set to take place on Sunday, April 8th.

Prior to his possible return at WrestleMania 34, The World's Largest Athlete is scheduled to induct Mark Henry into the WWE Hall of Fame, which takes place on Friday, April 6th.

Author’s take

Big Show truly is one of the most thorough professionals one could ever encounter in the world of professional wrestling, or for that matter in all of sports-entertainment.

Here’s hoping he gets back to his winning ways inside the squared circle sooner rather than later.
