Big Show to retire?

I've been hearing things about Big Show retiring? What do y'all think?

It would be tragic for Big Show to retire just as he started feeling a little more fresh than usual. I've enjoyed some of his matches lately and he looks much more intimidating now that he's not a fat blob. Think he should have one more run, maybe a run with the US title and call it quits next year.

Potential Shaq match lit a fire under his ass. Would much rather seen him in an ambassador role but if he wants to keep going; good for him

If he stays in shape, he can always be used sparingly like Andre after 85.

Honestly, if he was used as a part timer for most of his career, we wouldn't have been so down on the guy.

It's funny since he's in the best shape of his career. He's 45 now and could probably go until 50. But the dude has had an incredible career so it certainly wouldn't be a shame if he left. I guess he feels like there's just nothing left to do and he wants to let the younger talent take it away.

I just feel bad his final WrestleMania moment was taken away and he was reduced to being eliminated so early in the battle royal instead.

I hope he finds happiness in retirement and enjoys the perks of being in the best shape of his life. Live it up.

Has he actually confirmed that he's retiring or is this just mere speculation?

Guy is still a good mouthpiece and probably would be pretty awesome on commentary however that wont ever happen, same with Henry to a degree.

The guy has had a fantastic career but i'd be lying if I said i've enjoyed seeing him in the ring for the past, god knows how many years.
