Big Show recently spoke with Tim Fiorvanti of ESPN. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:
"The past four years, I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but I've been struggling with some really bad injuries. WWE and Vince [McMahon], because of the great and incredible new crop of talent we've had, have given me the chance to step back a little bit and give these guys a chance to develop their brand and become the superstars they can be. But it also gives me a chance to maintain some things, and take care of some stuff."
"Through diet and exercise it has been a blessing. I'm on board with it, I understand it and I'm motivated to do it. The results are happening. I feel great, I feel younger. I'm definitely not as sluggish as I was before. The ability for me to compete at a better level is definitely in sight and I think that's reinvigorating for me."
Possibly not hanging up the boots in 2017, his future being a "fluid situation" now that his health has improved:
"I'm not going to go out and try to be a world champion or have some kind of dominating title run. I've had those years, I've done that. I understand this is a new era and there's a new changing of the guard. I know I still have some time left on this contract. It depends on how my role is going to change. WWE is home, it's a family. I'll always be a part of this as long as I can contribute in some positive way. But I know there's a time when the sun sets on everything."
