Big Show returned to action earlier this year after some time away from WWE television to get hip surgery done. Show returned in October when he faced off against Randy Orton in a World Cup qualifier match for Crown Jewel, and then aligned with The Bar.
But this new, ‘big’ faction didn’t last long as The Bar and Big Show split up on this week’s SmackDown Live.
This past week on SmackDown, The Bar and Big Show split up in a backstage segment, when Big Show punched Cesaro, as The Bar were defeated in a non-title match to The Usos.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that the split was done so that Big Show can recuperate from a hamstring injury. In an interview with Busted Open Radio a few days ago, Big Show had spoken about how he had a slight injury, which is not related to the hip surgery that he had earlier this year.
Big Show joins several other WWE Superstars on the treatment table. Braun Strowman, Fandango, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Rowan, and Tye Dillinger are a few Superstars who are currently out due to injury.
WWE have not confirmed if Big Show has an injury, but his movement did look a little laboured and slow.
