Speaking to Fox News, Big Show weighed in on WWE continuing to run shows.

“Our number one mission is to entertain our fans. So what we were able to do, which was pretty ingenious, was put on an incredibly diverse, unique WrestleMania experience between the Boneyard Match with Undertaker and the Bonfire Playhouse with Bray Wyatt. Those are just incredible different approaches to doing our sport that our fans liked a lot.”

He continued, "We’re trying to do things the best that we can to entertain and also follow a lot of safety and health guidelines,” he shared. “I know that when I was there to do some things that I do with Drew McIntyre [there was] medical screening, temperature taking and social distancing. It was really nice to see how much WWE went after making the talent as safe as possible and those that wanted to compete for the fans. And that was one thing that’s been made very clear to all the talents -- you don’t have to. If you feel uncomfortable, stay at home, stay with your family. If you’re not in a situation where you could put someone else at risk… and you want to try to entertain your fans, you can. I thought they did a great job and WrestleMania turned out amazing.”

Big Show was part of WrestleMania 36, challenging Drew McIntyre after McIntyre won the WWE Title from Brock Lesnar. The "hidden main event of WrestleMania 36" aired on the Raw after WrestleMania.
