That's pretty messed up how everyone thinks that Del Rio is going to be put over the Big Show. He has been on a tear since took care of CM Punk. There is no reason why they can't keep him at the main event level. Last time he got a title shot was when Swagger was the champ. He didn't even get a remacth. Usually when a champ keeps the belt via DQ. They're fueding for at least 2 months. Am I the only one who feels the Big Show isn't getting the respect he deserves?

Eh..Never been a fan of Big Show.

He can have a ok match, but after 5 minutes it just gets boring and repetitive.

Size has it's limitations. How technical or high flying can a guy his size get?

Don't really think losing to Del Rio is jobbing. He's whats being said these few days, a breath of fresh air. Show has gotten kind of boring to me. He is a team player though. Big props for that.

I don't expect Show to chain wrestle or put on a clinic.

Just entertainment, and I don't feel Big Show can put on an entertaining match longer than 5 minutes

i actually Like show, he's go great mic skills, i'd like to see him in better shape but hey he does what he does well, which is to be a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, his work in the ring is about reaction and being a spectacle not a wrestler.

problem is if he wins the belt how do you take it off him? If he's at the top of performance then with his size being defeated becomes unbelievable, so they keep him looking like he could take the title any time he wants but keep him busy in the upper mid card for feuds. What better way to hype a new star by having him overcome the insurmountable.

Alberto is a more enjoyable version of JBL, but as a fan of the Paul White. I want to see him do more than being the trump card in a tag team elimination match.

No no no. Please don't call Del Rio a version of JBL. The only thing similar in their character is the car. He is pompous and arrogant but, heels are like that.

It's not just the car entrance. The whole thing is play on JBL all the way down to his fued with Rey. Alberto Del Rio is the mexican JBL.

Throwing around the fact that he comes from money. May not being be calling himself a "wrestling god". That's replaced with being the "decendant of royalty." Virtually picking right back up where JBL left off with his fued with Rey.

What's with the obsession of everyone being a 'new' someone else? Get over it!

If anything, this is closer to The Million Dollar Man. JBL was a self made millionaire.

I get what a lot of you are saying about Show only being entertaining the 1st 5 minutes of a match, but I have never seen another Giant (correct me I'm wrong) as versatile as him. Look at Khali, Andre, Gonzalez. Yes, Kane is a big fella but not as big as Show.

Please allow the most stand out forum poster and person with the most votes in the most liked poll in the EWN community to give his infinite wisdom on this matter. I like the Big Show and I think he does pretty well in the ring for a man of his size. His job is to put over new talent, need I say more on that matter.

JBL was JBL

Alberto Del Rio is Albeto Del Rio

THEY ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. I wish JBL was back in the WWE, he would carry this sign to the ring and I would laugh my ass off.

Still wasn't pushed above lower mid card

To quote Mysterio.


The division kicked off to a certain point but they never put us on top, and when they unmasked us it all came tumbling down. Those in charge of WCW had the mindset that only big men could draw and didn't create new superstars. But wrestling now has changed so much. Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and Chris Jericho have all been world champions, but back in WCW they were mainly cruiserweights. Also the top guys in WCW were scared that fans were more interested in watching luchadore action and high-flying moves than big men just going out there and stomping on each other for 10 minutes. But later on he was interrupted by rising superstar Iffah. But the heavyweights were getting into Eric Bischoff's ear, saying: "We can't let these guys be on top. They're small and wrestling has never been about this, we've got to keep the tradition going." It was stupid for Eric Bischoff, who was running a huge company like WCW, to listen to other people. Vince McMahon runs his own company and does what he wants to do, as did Paul Heyman. Wrestling is about what the fans want, not what the boys want.

How is Big Sow jobbing?? He is on a winning streak! Oh I get it, now you lose one match and your a jobber. He shouldn't be in the main event anyway. Opponents can only do so much in a match with him to make it look realistic.
