It seems that the World’s Largest Athlete has signed a new deal with the WWE. Big Show recently revealed at the New York Stock Exchange that he had signed a multi-year deal with the company.
The rumors of me retiring are false. I actually re-signed in January, so I have a new contract, a multi-year dollar deal, so I’ll be around for a while.

WWE also confirmed his return to the company with the announcement that he would be inducting the World’s Strongest Man Mark Henry into the 2018 Hall of Fame.
It is a titanic task to induct The World’s Strongest Man into the WWE Hall of Fame. So, who better to handle the duties than The World’s Largest Athlete? Big Show will have the honor of welcoming Mark Henry into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2018 Induction Ceremony this Friday, April 6, streaming live on WWE Network at 8 ET/5 PT.
The two titans have engaged in numerous battles over the years, including an epic rivalry over the World Heavyweight Championship in 2011. Outside the ring, the two veterans have become close friends. Their strong bond makes Big Show the perfect man for the task of inducting Henry.
“I’ve spent a lot of time going up and down the road with Mark Henry,” Big Show told WWE.com. “I’ve had battles with him, and I know what kind of a human being and community leader he is. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of the WWE Hall of Fame. It is my honor to induct my friend.”

It’s great to hear that the Big Show isn’t ready to hang up his boot yet. While he’s not getting any younger, he’s done a pretty good job recently as far as helping to put over Braun Strowman. The two had some pretty good matches in 2017, and with him slimming down and getting into even better shape, it wouldn’t surprise me if Big Show was able to string together some entertaining feuds over the next couple of years.
