Big Show is working WWE’s ongoing tour of the United Kingdom with a blown out knee, Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio. The 43-year-old has been dealing with lingering injuries to his knee in recent years, but has not undergone surgery to rectify the problem.
On Monday’s Manchester, England, edition of Raw, “The World’s Largest Athlete” lost to Roman Reigns in the opening contest of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament.
Meltzer also noted that there was a lot of crowd sweetening during the show, most notably when Triple H offered Roman Reigns a bye in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament. When the segment aired on television, WWE piped in cheers because they wanted Reigns to appear to have the support of the fans. He was actually booed by the crowd.
