Big Show Gives Advice To Young Wrestlers, Talks His Future & More



- Big Show recently spoke with AZCentral.com to promote Sunday’s WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:

Q: What about you? Is your persona in the ring close to the real you?

A: I think my persona when I’m a bad guy is me in a bad mood on a bad day amplified. I don’t run around like I do on TV; if I did, I’d be in a lot of trouble ( laughing). Sometimes my family and my wife will see me on TV and say, “I’ve seen that mood before, like the time you went for the jelly and the jar was empty.”

Q: Is it fun or difficult having to amp up the aggressive side of your personality?

A: Well, one beautiful thing about being a WWE superstar is that you may have things going on in your life that are stressful and weighing on your mind. For 15 or 20 minutes, you’re in front of the crowd and you can let off all that steam and all that pressure. It’s like therapy.

Q: You turned 40 this year, and this career can’t be easy to age in.

A: I’ve had an 18-year career, and physically and mentally, I feel fantastic. I have too much fun doing what I’m doing to stop. Barring injuries, I plan on doing this a while longer. Obviously, the sun sets on every athlete at some point, but I don’t think that time is near.

Q: What’s your advice for younger wrestlers?

A: (Laughing) Well, back when they used to talk to me, I would see a lot of the younger guys were frustrated. Everybody wants to be Undertaker or Triple H or John Cena. But Rome wasn’t built in a day. It’s consistency, consistency, consistency. You have to go out there every night and deliver, and when the opportunity is presented to you, it’s up to you to come through.
