In my last article regarding where Big Show is headed as World Heavyweight champion, I speculated that one eventual path could lead to his retirement. Now it's time to look at how (when it happens) his career ends.
Show's been in the game a long time.
The 40-year-old, who will celebrate a birthday shortly after Royal Rumble, made his debut in 1995, some 17 years ago. It might not seem that long, and Show certainly could have plenty of years left in the tank, but it's his size—7'0'', 441 pounds—that could ultimately influence the big man to tap out early.
Show has worked in WCW and WWE. He has gone toe-to-toe with legends such as Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, Steve Austin and The Rock. The guy has wrestled in a variety of gimmick matches, undergone tons of changes and spent considerable time as both a heel and a face.
He truly has accomplished more than many.
Honestly, now is as good a time as any to retire. Of course, only Show has an answer for when that day will come. But this isn't a discussion about when. Simply, this is a look at how.
