Big show says match with Drew McIntyre was not about a heel turn


In an interview with Sports Illustrated, The Big Show spoke of the challenge of WWE champion Drew McIntyre after Wrestlemania, which aired in Monday’s RAW episode. Here are the highlights:

Why he challenged McIntyre: “I know a lot of people grieve me, saying that I had more heels than NASCAR [laughs]. I want people to understand that challenging Drew after WrestleMania was not about a heel or face turn. I’ve been a WWE competitor for four decades, and a lot of the locker room was my responsibility – that’s what’s going on with the old folks. I was a fan of Drew 10 years ago. It didn’t work, and it does happen, but the way he came back and behaved, with all his focus, I wanted to show people the Drew McIntyre I know. And I can testify that Drew’s Claymore Kick will cause some fillings to be lost. He is the tough son of a gun. I’m really proud of him and he’s the champion that Raw deserves. There are many interesting matches with him in the future that I would like to see. “

How important it is for wrestling fans to feel welcome to watch their Netflix series: ” Its very important. Our creators, Josh Bycel and Jason Berger, are both WWE fans. And our writers are great too. They understand the product, they understand my time, my generation and they understand me as a character. To have this synergy to get the Big Show out of an environment, one with spandex and a square circle, and in a family setting. They did a fantastic job of bridging the Big Show character you’ve seen for years and the Big Show Big Show. It’s an easy transition for our fans to come, have fun and help escape. “

We recovered from injuries that kept him out of the ring: “Yes, it was five hip surgeries, so my body went through a lot. The first one, I had surgical complications with a surgical infection, which means the metal was dirty and we tried to fight it. Finally, we had to do a full replacement, and IV lines for antibiotics and all those things that I went through. When we were shooting The Big Show Show, I had just had my complete hip replacement about two and a half years ago three months ago. For me, I went through a lot. I too am a bit chubby. The reason is that I was fighting with my hip. Now I’m back to 372, and my weight is really good, as it was before I had surgery two years ago. Physically, I’m in a better place than I was a few years ago. It’s weird to say that I’m in better shape at 48 than at 42, but that’s true. And I always travel with my boots on, just in case the WWE designer needs me. “
