• Reason Behind Big Show Returning To RAW
As seen on last week’s episode of RAW, former WWF Champion The Big Show returned to WWE programming to team up with Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens to take on Seth Rollins & AOP.
According to Tom Colohue, Big Show has returned to put over AOP:
“As far as Big Show is concerned, he has come to put people over, and yes, he may have been made to look good on RAW but that’s important in order to put people over because if nobody cares about you, nobody is going to care who you are putting over.
He is not here to be wrestling every week, he is not going to do that, we are seeing a changing of the guard in the WWE at the moment.
He passed so much onto Braun Strowman as did people like Mark Henry, and he wants to put people over, he will be putting the AOP over, more than anything, which is important in the steps that they are taking.”
