Big Show has quipped that he would rather have his head crushed by a car than become a producer with WWE.


The 48-year-old, real name Paul Wight, has been a regular fixture on WWE programming since 1999 and is a bonafide legend.

Despite his wealth of experience, the former world champion has admitted he does not want to help produce weekly episodes of RAW or SmackDown.

"[You] may as well put my head under a car and back over it," he joked to Newsweek.

He instead explained he will use his expertise of working as a 7 ft giant to help teach the stars of tomorrow.

"I'm in a unique position that I don't have to work five nights a week like when I was full time.

"If you have a talent that is on their way as a big guy or medium-sized guy and I get the chance to get in the ring and work again and ride with this guy for a few days and help them that way.

"That's where I get to do my best work - being in the ring with them and work out their timing and what's going on in their head, and take them where they need to be."

The Tampa native has made sporadic appearances in the WWE since 2016 and recently returned to feud with Randy Orton.

Show lost to Orton in an unsanctioned match this past Monday on RAW and he praised 'The Viper' as one of the all-time greats.

"Randy has the perfect combination of looks, size, athletic ability.

"He's also a third-generation performer, so that knowledge and psychology is soaked into his DNA.

"As a kid, he'd sit at the dinner table and listen to his dad, 'Cowboy' Bob, and Randy didn't even realise the knowledge he was absorbing.

"Ever since I met Randy, I could tell there was something different about the kid.

"You just knew this guy was a main-event player.

"Now when you have that kind of success early in your career, sometimes that's a good thing, but sometimes it is a bad thing.

"Randy struggled with it. As wonderful and easy that Randy made everything look, it's now that he is firing on all cylinders.

"His promos have been off the charts the past few months and he really believes in what he's doing."
