The Big Show gave an interview to TV Insider this week to promote “Game On: A Comedy Crossover Event” that arrives Monday, August 10 on Netflix. He noted that he doesn’t currently think about retirement, but has spoken with Vince McMahon about his role in the company.
“Right now, it’s not on my mind, but it’s always there. Let’s face it, I’ve been doing this for 25 years. I’m not a spring chicken anymore. I have to see where our business evolves and see where I can fit in and still be an asset. Vince [McMahon] and I have talked extensively many times together about my role and what he wants from me and what I want to give to the company.”
The sure-fire WWE Hall of Famer brought up how he wants to continue to help younger talent and hopes when he retires he can get a job with WWE as a backstage producer.
“And I always want to contribute to WWE and the younger talent. I’m still excited for more shows and more opportunities and more angles. If it gets to a point where it’s time to say goodbye, then I will step back and work more behind the scenes. Hopefully, they’ll give me a job backstage doing something. I mean, I might be the person that you pass your Slammy to after you’ve won. I might be qualified to do that.”
