Big Show to undergo hip surgery

WWE.com is reporting that Big Show will be undergoing surgery on his hip later this month (September 29 to be exact). His original procedure was delayed due to Hurricane Irma.

Big Show talked at length about the upcoming surgery in a few weeks.

“I have to have the hip resurfaced. There’s been some traumatic injury done to the hip in the match with Braun Strowman. It’s frustrating as hell to be in the best shape I’ve been in my career, but that match, I kind of put a lot out on the table and I’m paying the price for it now. Going forward, I’m very confident in the medical team that’s doing the surgery … we’re gonna go forward from there and see what my options are.”

    “There’s been some traumatic injury done to the hip in the match with Braun Strowman.”

    My ass! More like he’s had this injury for a while now and WWE couldn’t pass up using Show’s hip problems from his 20 years of service to those ingrates in putting over Strowman. Nonetheless, I’ve always been a Big Show fan. Hope he & Foley both have a full recovery.
    Wrestling’s year of deaths, injuries, & overall misery goes on.

    Yep I agree…Time for show to take care of show…Show is one of the last old school pro’s, i.e. putting over the next generation is an honor….he paid his dues a long time ago and owes the biz nothing more…they owe him.

    They do indeed.
