Big Show is closer to the end of his career than the beginning, so what's next for the future WWE Hall of Famer after retirement?
Not backstage producing in WWE.
"Being a backstage producer, I may as well put my head under a car and back over it. I wouldn't want the headache that our backstage producers go through," Show told Newsweek. "I'm in a unique position that I don't have to work five nights a week like when I was full time. If you have a talent that is on their way as a big guy or medium-sized guy and I get the chance to get in the ring and work again and ride with this guy for a few days and help them that way, that's where I get to do my best work—being in the ring with them and work out their timing and what's going on in their head, and take them where they need to be. The toughest part is getting the younger talent to let loose and relax, and let the flow of the match be fluid, and not force stuff or plan a bunch of spots in the back and hope they work out. It's different now because they don't have an audience to have a connection with, so they have to create a connection with hard work in the ring."
He continued, "As far as me: I'm around as long as I'm still able to compete and produce. I know that those times are not as much as they used to be back in the day. Father Time is undefeated, but I'll always respect and love this business and I'm always around to help anyone, whether it's a talent from the Cruiserweights on up, I'm willing to help anybody. If the experiences that I've been through can help and make things easier, I'm always willing to give it."
Show was still going strong up until Monday when he was punt kicked by Randy Orton on Raw. It is unknown when he will return to television, but he has ventures outside of WWE, including his Netflix show The Big Show Show.
