The Big Show: I Drove Vince McMahon Nuts Asking For My Own Family Comedy Show

"The Big Show Show" premiered on Netflix on April 6 and has already made its way into the Top 10 on the platform.

Big Show has shown a range of emotions and characters throughout his time in WWE and for the last decade, he's wanted to take his talents to the studio for a family comedy.

"To be honest I am very humbled, and super grateful. This is an opportunity that I have driven the powers that be at WWE crazy for for years. Well over 10 years I have been driving Vince {McMahon} nuts about - ‘I need a family comedy, I can do this, I am funny, it shows my best characteristic points that I don’t ever get to show in my character on WWE TV but my personality can come through more and if we can get a vehicle like that, it can do well.’ And then the partnership came up with Netflix and Vince was like ‘I’ve got the perfect guy.’... I was dumbfounded because I had about a ten minute phone call with Vince and he’s a busy dude and he and I have a great relationship and a lot gets said with very few words. And {he said}, ‘I’ve got this opportunity for you, this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for and I know you won’t let me down. Goodluck.’ And that was that," Show told Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture and Fightful.

Big Show returned to WWE television on the Raw after WrestleMania, challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title in what turned out to be the hidden WrestleMania 36 main event.
