Big Show made a surprise return to the ring last week on Monday Night Raw, where he partnered up with Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe against Seth Rollins and AOP. Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Big Show discussed the return, the recovery from his hip surgeries, and his future in the ring.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On his surprise return:
They had me in an SUV with tainted windows, and I had a big Chrome Hearts hooded sweatshirt that I had over my head, I tried to hunch over and hide. Once we got back to an area that no one could see, I walked into a private changing area.
On his recovery from hip surgeries:
I worked very hard through five different surgeries. I went through IV PICC lines for dealing with a surgical infection, to replacement joints, always believing I was going to get back to a point where I could compete. So last Monday, hearing an incredibly positive response from the crowd, I knew I was going to enjoy that moment.
On his future in the WWE:
I’m being counted on to contribute, and that’s exactly where I want to be, This is a privilege. I’m 47, and there are a lot of younger guys who can do things I can’t do, so I have to prove the right to walk down that ramp. I’m doing this now because I love it, not because I have to.
