• Retirement Match Being Considered For WrestleMania 36
According to Slice Wrestling, WWE officials are considering a retirement match for The Big Show at WrestleMania 36.
Various ideas are being thrown around for Big Show’s last match, including a singles match with Braun Strowman or a tag team match.
During a recent interview with ESPN, The Big Show noted that he’d like to have one final WrestleMania match this year:
“That’s every competitor’s dream. I’d love to get one more in. Especially because it’s in Tampa, where I have a house, so I can drive home after the show.”
At last year’s WrestleMania 35 event, Batista and Kurt Angle had their final matches.
