In an interview with Digital Spy, Big Show has hinted at the possibility of something fans have been chanting about for weeks. Every time Big Show enters the ring these days, whether as heel or face (which changes every other week), the fans have been chanting "Please Retire!" Well, it seems that Big Show has been thinking about it. When asked about the potential of his career slowing down with the release of his new movie Vendetta, he had this to say:
"I think absolutely. I've had a fantastic career - I'm still competing on a full-time schedule, but nothing good lasts forever. So eventually I'm going to have to transition out of this industry and do something else that's entertaining and exciting for me.
I think a natural evolution for me would be to try to transfer over into the film and TV world and start playing different characters. Hopefully that way I can keep entertaining my fans that are fans of me, in different avenues and different spotlights. It's a natural evolution.
Am I a little sad that my wrestling career is towards its end? Well, yeah, because this has been my life for 20 years. But I think I can continue to help some of the younger guys get over and develop and find out who they are then find a pleasant transition for myself. I'm not quite in the old folks' home yet, I've still got more to do."
