What’s the story?

Well, on a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, Big Show opened up about his hip surgery and the serious complications after his recent hip surgery.

Well, Big Show has now provided another update on his comeback and his tremendous weight loss - delivering the news from the saddle of a bicycle!

In case you didn’t know…

Big Show is one of the veterans of the game with 23 years of experience under his belt, but many thought he was on the way out of the business.

The World's Largest Athlete was written off of WWE television after a Steel Cage Match against Braun Strowman on the September 4th episode of Monday Night RAW to allow him to undergo the surgery.

The heart of the matter

Well, many people will remember that Big Show got himself in tremendous shape last year ahead of a rumoured match against Shaq that never came to fruition - it looks like that same determination and desire are present this time too.

Many people will remember Big Show as the 500-pound giant at his heaviest...

But The World's Largest Athlete showed off a leaner frame last year - and revealed today that he now weighs 390 pounds - an incredible difference from the Show we knew a decade ago.

Big Show's transformation is astounding

Big Show revealed that he is planning on a "giant comeback" at the end of the clip. While some complications have provided unwanted speedbumps on the road to recovery, the giant's update was incredibly positive.

It had been suggested earlier that any potential return would be towards the end of this year, but Big Show seems incredibly upbeat and adamant that he'll come back.

What’s next?

Well, no matter what happens, we're certain we'll see Big Show back on WWE television.

While he remains upbeat and is at least dropping weight and doing physical exercise, it seems like it's a long journey ahead of The World's Largest Athlete to get back to the ring.

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 and playing a monumental part in WWE programming. No matter what he does from now on in, he'll always be an immense attraction on WWE television.

I would love to see him back in the ring and even think he could slot back into the main event picture so easily if WWE wanted him to - but above all else, I just wish him a speedy recovery.
