Big Show on helping younger talent

“So long as I’m able to contribute and have fun, I’m in. But at the same time, it depends on the storylines and the creativity. If there’s an opportunity that makes sense, absolutely, I’m here to help out.

If I could help get some of the younger talent on their way in the execution of my duties, I’m happy to do it" - Big Show explained. “If you saw me every week on TV as a bodyguard it would water down the experience.

Part of me and now what I’m doing is– I’m more of an attraction now, so seeing me here and there. If Big Foot cuts through your backyard once in a while, that’s me" - he added. Outside of professional wrestling, Wight has appeared in feature films and television series such as Jingle All the Way, The Waterboy, Star Trek: Enterprise, and two USA Network's comedy-dramas Royal Pains, Psych and the action-drama Burn Notice.

In 2010, he had his first lead role, in the comedy film Knucklehead, which was produced by WWE Studios. On the January 6, 2020 episode of Raw, Big Show returned from injury over a year later, teaming with Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe to defeat Seth Rollins and AOP via disqualification, thus turning face in the process.

In a match filmed during WrestleMania 36, which aired on the April 6 episode of Raw, Show reverted back to a heel after insulting and challenging newly-crowned WWE Champion Drew McIntyre for his title, Show was subsequently defeated.

On the June 15 episode of Raw, Show turned face again by helping The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders fend off the group of ninjas led by Akira Tozawa.
