  • Supposedly The Reason Why Big Show Dropped the World Title to ADR

    There's been a lot of speculation as to why Alberto Del Rio was made World Heavyweight Champion, but the real story behind the scenes is that Big Show could not come to terms with WWE on a new contract. Since Big Show's contract was running out, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon made the decision to crown Del Rio the new champion. At the time of the taping in Miami, that was actually considered potentially to be Big Show's last match in WWE. Later in the week, the company and Big Show came to terms, and he hasn't missed any shows.


    We heard from one source on the writing team that the company was very angry the negotiations went all the way to the breaking point, but now that Del Rio has been crowned champion "the plans have changed, as Del Rio is the focus of the show going forward."

    From WrestleZone, so take that for what it's worth. Makes sense since he did come back around this time in 2008, so if he signed a four year contract it would run out soon. Surprised we didn't hear about it sooner. Also surprised they gave him the World Title without securing him first.

    That's a good point about 2008. Vince has had some trouble as of late with contract negotiating.

      Everything has to be discovered without keeping some mystery I guess.
      Who is the boss? Who made wrestling? Who is sports entertainment?

        Big Show's iron-clad contract ran out? Iron-clad contracts don't run out, do they? I can see why Big Show would be annoyed at that.

          He needs to get David Otunga to check that out.

            I was told that the network didn't like having a overweight man as there champion and really pushed WWE to have a champion that was skinner and more fit.

              Johnny Ace is so inept, he gave Big Show an iron clad contract that ran out in 6 months.

                Show dropping the title the way he did makes more sense to me now.



                Props to surrender for the great banner.

                  Definitely. Otunga is a Harvard-graduated lawyer and is undefeated in court! He will stomp a mudhole in the WWE's lawyers. Then he will get fired.

                    I'm just happy ADR is champion. I never was a fan of big show..even when he was in WCW

                    Thank you Surrender!!!

                      Big Show ended up resigning...so why would they strip him anyway? He's been with the company for ages, could they not trust him?

                      Its why I don't know about this article.

                        Because he hadn't signed when they stripped him. And it's not about trust, if your contract is up then you're allowed to leave, period. Eve just did the exact same thing.

                        That said, it is from WrestleZone, so if it hasn't been reported elsewhere, it should be taken lightly.

                          Show ended up returning though...so give him the belt back? Should have waited until the Rumble.

                          That being said I guess ADR's title reign has more potential than what Show's did....that and Zigs at any minute could cash it in on the face ADR.

                            I think we will see Big Show defeat ADR for the title fairly soon. Maybe at the Rumble or early February.

                              If his contract was up before the Rumble, how could they have waited until the Rumble?
