As some of you may already know, Brock Lesnar has been signed to work the big live event at Madison Square Garden. He was initially rumored to be wrestling Bo Dallas on the show, but that was proven wrong. WWE has finally decided on an opponent for the former world heavyweight champion. He will be wrestling Big Show that night. The event is being aired exclusively on the Network.

A post on YouTube where WWE lists the top ten biggest moments from the episode of Smackdown that aired on August 27, 2015. Among them are the vicious attack from the Wyatt Family, including new member Braun Strowman, towards Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. There is also a clip of some animosity brewing between Rusev and Big Show.

During a recent interview, Big Show discussed the topic of retiring, something which many WWE fans have been begging him to do over the past couple of months. He stated that he is perfectly fine with putting over the new guys, as that is something that veterans should do. Show does not want to make a big deal when he actually decides to retire. The former world heavyweight champion also mentioned that he wanted to commentate in the future.

Originally, the plan by WWE was to have Miz team up with Stardust to take on Stephen Amell and Adrian Neville. However, management had to change up those plans when Ryback was injured and the feud including Big Show was stalled. A replacement was needed, so they decided on Wade Barrett, who really did not have an important program to work, despite being King of the Ring.

In a rather odd move, Big Show acted very much like a baby face at a live event in Vancouver over the weekend. It makes sense for him to do that against Miz, as they are working a three way feud with Ryback. However, Show went the distance by helping Jimmy Uso to the backstage area. Generally, a heel would just leave the attacked baby face in the ring.

A couple of weeks ago, Miz mentioned that Big Show was well past his prime. Rumors have it that this was not just a one time thing. WWE could be using this as a story line for the former world heavyweight champion throughout the rest of the year. Show would face a slew of younger opponents to try to show the world that he can still be a star in professional wrestling today.

During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Big Show revealed that he once almost got into a real life fight with Booker T. Apparently, Booker was talking trash to Show by saying that WCW only gave him a contract because of his size. An argument ensued, but a physical altercation never took place. Show stated that Booker more than likely would have won the fight.

During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Big Show revealed that he instructed Floyd Mayweather to purposely break his nose during their feud. The former world heavyweight champion wanted to do that because he felt that the audience would not buy the size difference unless they made it look like the boxer's punching power was super human.

It appears that we are not going to be seeing photos of Sabu and Big Show drinking beers together on social media anytime soon. The two of them apparently have backstage heat. The former ECW Heavyweight Champion posted a message accusing Show of snitching him out to management. The post has since been deleted.

During the third match of Money in the Bank, Big Show managed to get the victory over Ryback, but it was via disqualification because Miz interfered, so the Intercontinental Championship remains in tact. WWE is more than likely setting up a triple threat match next month between these guys.
