The Big Show is a staple of WWE programming, always ready to pose as a roadblock for a new star or turn on a trusted babyface. However, wrestling isn’t this wrestling legend’s only passion, as seen by his new sitcom, Netflix’s The Big Show Show. Speaking with TV Insider, Show talks about how nervous he was to jump into a leading role.
I’m nervous because we put so much heart into this. From my own personal journey, [co-stars] Allison [Munn] and the girls saw me every night to thank our live audience before the show and after. Almost after every taping I was almost in tears thanking everyone who filled a seat to watch the taping. It meant a lot to me.
Just because Show is currently stepping outside the ring doesn’t mean he sees himself as retired. In fact, after facing Drew McIntyre in the aftermath of WrestleMania 36, Show feels he has a lot left in the tank.
I don’t have an opponent picked out yet for my final match because I think that is a ways away. What I have done is stepped back as far as full-time, five nights a week, in the trenches. I’ve done that for 25 years. Now it’s time for the guys to stake their claim and build their characters and legacies.
