Last October at Hell in a Cell, the Big Show ended Sheamus’ reign as world champion with not one, but two knockout punches. It was a surprising outing and stole the show that night.
Show once again became heavyweight champion of the world. His matches with Sheamus only showed the giant’s regained wrestling form with the Celtic Warrior. It displayed his once dominant form again in the WWE. What happens now for the world heavyweight champion?
Well, his potential run might come to an end. After being disqualified in a rematch between the two at Survivor Series, it was announced the two would fight once more in a chairs match at December’s TLC pay-per-view.
Signs point to Sheamus regaining the title then. He’ll get back the world title and make Show’s reign barely two months.
But what if Show keeps the title? Potential storylines can be brought forth for the world title picture.
Sheamus will probably still vie for the title, but other contenders will rise. Randy Orton and The Miz could contend with Show for the title. In fact, maybe Dolph Ziggler cashes in his contract and becomes champion.
Make no mistake—this is about the Big Show and his world heavyweight title. Show can be this year’s version of Mark Henry. He can be the dominant heel and have a lengthy run as champion. Show’s done it before as the ECW champion in 2006, holding that title for roughly six months. Only this time there would be no one his size that can stop him. Maybe it doesn’t have to be a fellow super-heavyweight stopping him.
Maybe it turns out that Orton, Sheamus or Miz will take the title from him. Maybe Ziggler does in fact cash in. It could even be someone new taking that title from him.
Regardless, Big Show might have another run in him. If so, don’t expect the World Heavyweight champion to slow down. This could be Big Show’s resurrection as the dominant giant he once was.
