Show had not wrestled since November 2018 when he teamed with The Bar (Cesaro & Sheamus) in a loss to New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E, & Xavier Woods). Speaking to WWE backstage following his bout on Raw, Big Show discussed his return and revealed how many surgeries he's had over the last year and some change.
"[Monday] was amazing after going through five hip surgeries in a year and a half. To be able to take a phone call from a friend and come out in front of the incredible crowd, get back in the ring, and be competitive; I'm just extremely humbled and grateful," he said. "They say, 'what doesn't break you makes you stronger.' My faith in my career and faith in myself and this business was tested the last two years like it's never been tested before. I'm extremely grateful for the fans and we'll see what happens next week."
Big Show was then informed that he will be in a Fist Fight against Rollins and AOP next Monday, which made him laugh.
"Let me get this right, somebody wanted to fist fight with me in the match? Somebody doesn't like AOP or Seth Rollins. That's funny."
WWE TV won't be the only place fans can catch The Big Show as he is set to star in "The Big Show Show" on Netflix. A release date for the series has yet to be announced.
