The Big Show announced that he is indeed winding down his career and that he plans on retiring once his current contract ends in 2018. In his last match to date, he lost to Braun Strowman in a cage match on Monday Night RAW more than a month ago before having surgery.
The 7-foot giant has been wrestling since 1995 when he started in WCW as “The Giant” and was marketed as Andre The Giant’s son for a feud with Hulk Hogan. He left WCW in January of 1999 and went to the then WWF. Over the years he spent time in developmental for a couple of stints and took time off for injuries a few times. He’s held most of the heavyweight titles in the company over the years. He had planned on facing Shaq at this year’s Wrestlemania, and when the match fell through, he decided to call it a career. He’s not said what he plans to do for the remainder of his contract or what he has planned for afterward, but you have to think a Hall Of Fame induction isn’t too far in the future.
We not only wish Big Show well on his recovery, but we also thank him for regrowing some of his
