WWE News: The Big Show talks about working with John Cena and Roman Reigns
WWE Superstar Big Show, in an interview with Digital Spy recently spoke about the wrestling styles of both Roman Reigns and John Cena. He also described his experiences working with them.
Big Show has been one of the most pivotal characters in professional wrestling throughout his twenty-year career in the sport, making his mark in both major promotions in which he has competed for, World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) where he has been working since 1999.
The Big Show, who stands at a towering height of seven feet, has held the WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship and WWE championship both two times each. After having spent two decades now in the gruelling business of pro wrestling, one can only imagine that the giant is close to calling it a career.
While still going strong as one of the WWE’s biggest stars, Big Show recently spoke to Digital Spy to promote the WWE’s upcoming UK tour. Show first discussed what it is like working with one of, if not the biggest star to ever grace the squared circle in John Cena and current star Roman Reigns:
“Roman works the best when he’s got somebody bigger to attack him. I thought his stuff he did with Brock was amazing at Mania. I think Roman has a lot of all the right pieces to make everything work. I just think it’s our society nowadays to pick on the guy that’s good-looking, that’s athletic, that’s actually getting a break.
But let’s give credit where credit’s due. The kid’s a hard-working kid, he’s a hell of an athlete, he’s got a great look and in the ring his timing’s good. That was one of the things that worked well with me because matches with me are really simple: If you treat me like a giant and you sell, I make your life easy.
I’m good at taking comebacks and I’m good at taking finishers and I’m gonna get you over. If you work with me I’m gonna get you over – or at least the match is gonna be good. Roman gets that.”
Big Show further went on to add his thoughts about wrestling with John Cena:
“Another great one is Cena. Whenever I wrestle Cena, Cena starts off with two or three offensive moves and then I crunch him. But we all know the finish at the end is, you know, Five Knuckle Shuffle and there’s an AA and everybody goes home happy. It’s not a real hard format.
If they work with me and allow me to impose my will and be that bully, that resonates with people subconsciously… we have a natural instinct to fight for the underdog. Sometimes when I’m a heel and I get the right opponent I’m very fortunate and able to tell that story, and I think that Roman did great at it. He was awesome to work with.”
What are your thoughts? Do you think The Big Show should hang it up after his match with Shaq at Wrestlemania 33 next year? Or are we still not ready to say goodbye to the multiple time world champion?
