Ever since Big Show returned to WWE programming, he has taken a more traditional approach to his persona by reminding viewers that he is a giant.
This technique, while seen dozens of times before, works for the Big Show.
In fact, the idea that the Big Show is not a favorite entering any match in WWE’s reality era is downright ridiculous.
Big Show’s feud with Sheamus consistently played on the idea that Big Show is too tall to be hit with the Brogue Kick. Landing a finisher that requires kicking one of the tallest competitors in WWE does not seem plausible. Yet WWE has a tendency to oversee any such logic in favor of a face going over with the crowd.
This was not the case, since Big Show won the World Heavyweight Championship in arguably the most entertaining match of the night.
His win at Hell in a Cell can possibly lead a dominant title run much like Mark Henry’s 2011 reign.
