Re: Is Big Show an unsung great worker?
Show is hands down THE most underrated among the IWC. Sure, he can't sell like Ziggler or Sandow, sure, he's not a great technical performer like Punk or Bryan. But the guy's 40+ years old and 500 pounds. Anyone else would hardly be able to walk at this point, let alone compete in solid if slow-paced matches every night. He's one of the best giants the WWE has ever had. He tells a great story with the mid-match talking, facial expressions & absolute dominance of his opponents, plus he knows how to put his opponents over and has done so willingly for most of his career.
Despite his limitations, the guy is flat out amazing, and I mark for him not because his matches are exciting, but because he does his job so well. And on that sad day when he finally hangs up the boots, I think most fans, both marks and smarks, will miss him, even if they bash him now.
