WWE Superstar Big Show recently spoke with the U.K.’s Digital Spy to promote the upcoming WWE tour of the United Kingdom.
During the interview, Big Show talked about what it’s like to work with Roman Reigns and John Cena. Regarding Reigns, Big Show said he works his best when he’s got someone bigger than him to attack him.
“Roman works the best when he’s got somebody bigger to attack him. I thought his stuff he did with Brock was amazing at Mania. I think Roman has a lot of all the right pieces to make everything work. I just think it’s our society nowadays to pick on the guy that’s good-looking, that’s athletic, that’s actually getting a break. But let’s give credit where credit’s due. The kid’s a hard-working kid, he’s a hell of an athlete, he’s got a great look and in the ring his timing’s good. That was one of the things that he worked well with me because matches with me are really simple: If you treat me like a giant and you sell, I make your life easy. I’m good at taking comebacks and I’m good at taking finishers and I’m gonna get you over. If you work with me I’m gonna get you over – or at least the match is gonna be good. Roman gets that.”
While talking about Reigns being one of the good talents in WWE for him to work with these days, he went into a quick side-bar about John Cena, noting that he is “another great one.”
“Another great one is Cena. Whenever I wrestle Cena, Cena starts off with two or three offensive moves and then I crunch him. But we all know the finish at the end is, you know, Five Knuckle Shuffle and there’s an AA and everybody goes home happy. It’s not a real hard format. If they work with me and allow me to impose my will and be that bully, that resonates with people subconsciously… we have a natural instinct to fight for the underdog. Sometimes when I’m a heel and I get the right opponent I’m very fortunate and able to tell that story, and I think that Roman did great at it. He was awesome to work with.”
Before the interview wrapped up, Big Show shared his thoughts on the rumored match for next year’s WrestleMania 33 event. As noted, Big Show vs. Shaquille O’Neal in a match of giants is rumored to be one of the featured matches at next year’s WrestleMania.
“This is going to be a big media spectacle, once we start kicking off the angle, who knows what we’re going to do and who knows how we’re going to tie it together, how we’re going to make it work? I don’t see anything bigger than that happening for me in this stage of my career. I’m happy for the spotlight that I’m going to share with Shaq at WrestleMania and that’s that. If that’s the last opportunity, thank you very much, it’s been a fantastic time. If Vince comes up with something else, I’ll be there with a smile on my face and make that happen too.”
