NO ONE CARES ABOUT WATCHING THIS MAN WRESTLE.
Breaking my never-ending hibernation to make this point: because Big Show is famous and impressive-looking and was both nWo and Attitude (sorta), the WWE clearly thinks that people remain interested in his exploits.
They are not.
He’s not useless; his size, history and likability make him a good hand to have around for quick pops and involvement in undercard storylines. (The feud with Cody Rhodes was fine, albeit disappointing for Cody Rhodes fans.) Apparently the pops he was getting for taking on the authority convinced HHH and co. that people wanted to see Big Show fight.
No, not at all. We hated the authority because the authority was keeping Daniel Bryan down, whom we love. We were glad when Big Show came out and punched people because those people were standing in between Daniel Bryan and the WWE Title. No one ever wanted Big Show to get a title shot, at all. We just wanted him to punch HHH at opportune moments.
Seriously, I would love a legitimate answer to this question: why would anyone want to watch Randy Orton vs. Big Show for the WWE Title? Big Show can’t really wrestle anymore, and that’s been true for like three years. Orton only has good matches with small fellas. Both men have been over-exposed and overused for like five years; there’s nothing fresh or exciting about the matchup.
WHY? WHY? WHY? also WHY?
