As noticed by many, Big Show did not appear as advertised on Raw last night.
During last week, WWE started advertising Big Show to return on Raw, yet there was no sign nor mention of the 7-footer on last night’s show. Latest reports claim that Show is still recovering from a knee injury, and that prevented his return. Show was reported to have been seen limping backstage at the Money in the Bank PPV last Sunday, and WWE want to hold off his return until they can be sure he is close to being cleared to wrestle, as they have an angle planned for him for next month’s SummerSlam show.
The company are taping next week’s Raw tonight, and the next two weeks’ worth of Smackdown tomorrow and Thursday, and it is expected that Show will appear on one of those shows to start the SummerSlam angle. If he does not appear, it would be clear that he is not close to clearance and therefore they won’t push ahead with the planned angle.
