Veteran wrestler Big Show has become more of a special attraction than an actual threat for the WWE Title. His immense size makes him a fierce competitor yet not a wrestler whom will ever be at the top of the company again. It’s not necessary for him to become the top guy, a position he has never been in, but an opportunity to at least become important would be nice to see for the hardworking giant before he hangs up his boots.
Put Him with Rookies
Big Show can give youngsters a rub by losing to them or the WWE could do something more original and pair him with them. Due to his size, Big Show has had little reason to require a partner. In many ways this takes away from his gimmick of being an unstoppable gigantic monster that can defeat his opponents with one knockout punch.
The best times in Big Show’s career was working as a heel instead of his boring “Teddy Bear” gimmick he undertakes whenever he plays the good guy. A scenario I see making him relevant again would include him taking another wrestler or even a tag team under his wing. Of course this would eventually lead to any protégé(s) he has turning on him once they are established enough to work on their own. Big Show’s name and status within the company could carry someone as long as they work hard with him in whatever role they are given.
Have Him Work as a Manager
Never known as an artist on the microphone, Big Show still carried himself well whenever a promo needed to be cut. Another way to get him involved more would to give him a role working primarily as a manager.
While his career comes to a close, Big Show could remain on screen without having to wrestle full-time if he became a manager. Triple H and Kane are already doing this as members of The Authority. For the sake of keeping things fresh Big Show would need to stay away from copying them. Big Show could speak for a wrestler who struggles on the mic or it could be kayfabe in that his client does not speak English. Maybe Big Show even just believes in a current wrestler more than anyone else and works more as a mentor. A wrestler unable to find himself stuck in a terrible purgatory, like Damien Sandow, could join Big Show for resurgence.
