What’s the story?

WWE Superstar Big Show has recently opened up about his recent hip surgery and the serious complications he encountered afterwards.

Well, we doubt the World's Largest Athlete thought this would be part of the rehab - pushing a car to the safety!

In case you didn’t know…

The Big Show is one of the true veterans of wrestling with 23 years of experience under his belt.

The seven-foot Superstar was last seen on WWE television after a Steel Cage Match against Braun Strowman on the September 4th episode of Monday Night RAW and has since he underwent a surgery and is now on the road to recovery.

The heart of the matter

Well, I don't know if there are many better people who could spot you in danger and give you a helping hand in just about any circumstance, but Jared Plew's bad luck took a surprising turn when his car broke down, only to be helped out by possibly one of the biggest helping hands on the planet.

Big Show obviously didn't let the fact that he's recovering from injury get in the way, and even replied to Jared on Twitter.

What’s next?

Well, Big Show has encountered a few speed bumps on his road to recovery, but we can expect to see Big Show back on WWE television after he provided an update from the saddle of his bicycle.


While Show remains upbeat, it does seem like it's a long journey ahead of The World's Largest Athlete to get back to the ring - with an estimate of 6-8 months being rumoured.

We'll keep an eye out for more updates on this one.

Author’s take

Big Show is already Hall of Fame material from his two decades of service but this just shows that he's one of the nice guys in the business too.

A lot of Superstars have praised the giant for his willingness to bump when he really doesn't have to at his size and after his monumental career, but he's proven again to be a gentle giant and a gentleman with this deed - and it's great to see a silver lining being put on the raincloud of a car breaking down for the unlucky driver too.
