For the better part of the last year, the talk surrounding The Big Show was whether his match against Shaquille O'Neal will actually happen at WrestleMania 33.
If it doesn't end up happening, fans may never get to see it happen as Show seems to be in the final months of his WWE career. During an interview with Yahoo! Sports, the former world champion spoke about his contract and future inside the squared circle.
I know I’m done February 2018. That’s when my contract ends as a full-time, live event guy. We’ll see what happens after that, whether I roll into an ambassador role or what WWE has for me. I know I’ve been with them for a long time and I have a great relationship with them. I also understand there’s a time for me to step aside and for other guys to step up. We got a lot of great new athletic talent that will probably be coming up at WrestleMania to be introduced. I don’t have any regrets or any shoulda, coulda, wouldas in my career. I’ve had a very blessed career with the greatest superstars this business has ever seen. And for me, it’s about giving that space up to those guys that are there to do it and me finding new challenges to help inspire and motivate me. That’s what I’ll be doing. Anything to keep from having to get a real job.
He's said in the past that his career was starting to wind down, but it's clear that Show is doing whatever he can to make his last year as a full-time wrestler as great as possible.
From getting into incredible shape to hyping up the potential match against Shaq, Show clearly wants to take the fans on one last ride before riding off into the sunset.
