After the match, Uncle Howdy appeared on the screen and asked Alexa if she feels ‘in charge’.
According to PWInsider, Alexa is taking a break from WWE. WWE Officials knew about her time off heading into the Royal Rumble. She hasn’t been backstage at WWE events since her loss to Belair.
She will not be a part of next week’s Elimination Chamber 2023 premium live event in Canada.
However, she is expected to return in time for WrestleMania 39, and might join forces with Bray Wyatt again.
• WWF Attitude Era Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Legend The Big Show (Real name: Paul Wight) celebrates his 51st birthday today.
As an WCW Original, who was trained in the famous ‘WCW Power Plant’ wrestling school, he debuted for Ted Turner’s promotion in 1995, billed as André The Giant’s son, called “The Giant”.
The Giant worked his first storyline (and won the belt in his first official match) against the greatest name in the history of this business, Hulk Hogan.
After leaving World Championship Wrestling in early February 1999, he signed with the World Wrestling Federation right away and debuted at the February 14th ‘WWF In Your House 27: St. Valentine’s Day Massacre’ PPV, under his real name, Paul Wight.
Soon adopting the name ‘The Big Show’, with the exception of his hiatus in 2007, he kept working for the (now renamed) WWE until 2021.
Being one of the greatest giants of all time, he is also the ONLY wrestler in history who won the WWF/WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship and the ECW World Heavyweight Championship.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG SHOW!
