Since the company wanted to sell the brutality of Brock Lesnar for his match against Big Show at Royal Rumble 2014, they had Mark Henry work an injury angle and take a couple of weeks off. It looks the former world champion is returning to WWE, possibly as soon as Monday Night Raw this week.
Even though WWE is making him look dominant on Monday Night Raw, there are very few people within the company that believe that the Big Show has much of a chance of coming out of the Royal Rumble with a victory during his match against the returning Brock Lesnar.
Rumor has it that Kane will start wrestling again soon, as WWE has started putting him into matches during live events. He recently worked an extremely sloppy match against Zack Ryder, before being beaten by the Big Show afterwards in Buffalo.
Since WWE officials do not have a story line for Rey Mysterio, they have decided to throw him together with Big Show into a tag team. The two of them are expected to work together until at least the Royal Rumble.
While he continues to tour with the company and work matches, Big Show is said to be having quite a bit of issues with his injured knee. WWE needs him for the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, so he's expected to work through it.
"Even CM Punk, he was champion for 400 plus days. He only main evented pay per views when he was wrestling John Cena."
Since the Super Bowl is being played on Sunday, WWE has decided to do their live event in Lakeland, Florida at 1pm. The advertised main event for the show is a match between Kane and Big Show, who was injured last weekend. That has led many to believe that this is a throw away show.
Big Show was noticeably missing from Monday Night Raw this week. WWE has given him some time off to heal from the hand injury that he suffered at a live event over the weekend. Management had Brock Lesnar attacking him during Royal Rumble 2014 to write him off of television.
