Big Show Signs New WWE Contract, Return To The Ring Confirmed

Big Show

WrestleMania week is finally upon us and Big Show kicked things off by ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (as well as revealing details on his new WWE contract).

The NYSE posted a video of the bell ringing session, which also features an interview with “The World’s Largest Athlete.”

During the interview, the 46-year-old revealed that he signed a new multi-year contract in January and won’t be retiring anytime soon.

“The rumors of me retiring… are false. I actually re-signed in January. So I have a new contract, multi-year deal, so I’ll be around for a while,” Show said.

“This is not the end. For those… who wanted me to retire? Too bad, so sad, I’m still here.

“It’s a different role for me. I’m still competing in the ring, doing a lot more outside projects – more projects for myself as well, but it’s a good synergy that WWE and I put together and I’m really looking forward to the future.”

WWE announced today that Show is among the first five entrants in the 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match, which will take place at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. AST.

WWE also announced today that he will induct Mark Henry into the WWE Hall of Fame this Friday in New Orleans, Louisana.
