Big Show has appeared sporadically in WWE over the last two years. He returned to the company in late 2018, aligning himself with The Bar in their rivalry against The New Day. He went on hiatus again following the November 27th 2018 episode of SmackDown and The World’s Largest Athlete has not wrestled since November 20th 2018 when he teamed with Sheamus and Cesaro against The New Day in a Thanksgiving Feast Fight.
The six-time World champion returned to WWE on last night’s episode of Raw, as he was revealed as Samoa Joe’s and Kevin Owens’ mystery partner for their match against Seth Rollins and AOP. The match itself ended in a disqualification victory for Show as Rollins attacked him with a steel chair. He meshed well with his new allies after the bell as they fended off an attack from their opponents after Show delivered a K.O Punch to The Beast Slayer.
In an interview backstage, Big Show said he was delighted to be back in WWE after recovering from hip surgery. He said: “Tonight was amazing, after going through five hip surgeries in a year and a half, to be able to take a phone call from a friend, a peer, and appear in the business, to be able to come out in front of this incredible crowd tonight and get back in the ring after a year and a half and be competitive, I’m just extremely humbled and grateful.”
