The Big Show has had a long and successful career in the pro wrestling business. He’s one of best big wrestlers to ever step inside of the squared circle.
There has been a lot of reaction to the segment done by John Oliver on Last Week Tonight about the critique of WWE and how they treat their talent. While at the airport to travel for WrestleMania 35 weekend, TMZ caught up with the former WWE Champion where he gave his reaction.
“Everybody is entitled to their own opinion and has their own experiences on how they feel. I’ve had a hell of a career, I’ve had a lot of injuries. I knew from day one stepping through the ropes that it was not an easy job. It was a job that was gonna put myself at risk. I took the paychecks, I took the fame, I took the fortune, and those are the risks that happen.”
“That’s just part of the industry, and the industry has changed. It’s done everything it can to protect the athlete and create longevity for the athlete. I’m 47, I’m still rocking and rolling. So they’re doing something right.”
