Big Show is set to face John Cena inside a steel cage at No Way Out on Sunday. This could be his chance to prove he is not just here to get other people over.

Big Show recently turned heel after a lengthy run as a baby face and now he is trying to morph his character into that of a vicious monster.

One good way to get the character over would be to have him take WWE's golden boy, John Cena, to school and put him out for a while.

This may be the end game WWE had in mind to begin with. Cena is in need of some time off to handle some personal issues and rest up and this could be the perfect way to do it.

Having Big Show put Cena on the shelf for a while would help to get Show over as a monster as well as give Cena the time he needs to rest up and handle his business.

Big Show is someone who got the short end of the stick in his career. Due to his look and size, he is always compared to Andre The Giant—a legend in the business.

By comparing him to Andre, fans are not giving him the chance to make his own way and leave his own legacy in the wrestling world.

He has shown us time and time again that he is physically capable of things no one his size has done and he is always solid in the ring and on the mic.

Even though he had a short feud for the World Title on SmackDown, he is never really in the main-event scene of WWE—at least not since he returned.

Beating John Cena inside a cage would put Show in a great position to challenge for the WWE Championship and move up the ladder to become WWE's top heel.

If you are Vince McMahon and you have a giant like Big Show, you would be stupid to waste him in midcard matches and feuds.

He makes anyone he gets in the ring with look like an underdog and that is a trait that cannot be taught or picked up by just anyone.

We also have to remember that if Big Show loses, John Laurinaitis gets fired. WWE seems to be doing well with a heel in charge of both shows, so I would expect them to want to keep him.

When Big Show faces John Cena at No Way Out, I fully expect to see Show not only win, but put Cena on the shelf for a little while and help JL keep his job.

What do you think? Will Big Show beat John Cena and prove he is a main-event-level talent?
