Sports Illustrated's "Hot Clicks" blog did a "Three Questions" feature with Paul Heyman to promote tonight's live WWE Network special from Madison Square Garden. The full article is at this link. It was noted that Big Show gets a lot of criticism and fans chant for him retire. Heyman was then asked why fans should want to watch Big Show's match against Brock Lesnar tonight. He replied:
"If Brock Lesnar is in the main event at Madison Square Garden, it doesn't matter to me who his opponent is. We're going back to the Roman Coliseum and we're feeding victims to the lions. And they always packed the Roman Coliseum for that. Big Show happens to be the meatiest victim we could find for Brock Lesnar. I don't think we're paying to see a one hour classic at Madison Square Garden. I don't think fans are paying to see WWE's version of Ali and Frazier going 15 rounds. People are paying to see Brock Lesnar eat someone alive. The are paying to see whoever it is, in this case The Big Show, to Suplex City. People are paying to see Brock Lesnar eat, sleep, conquer, repeat. And that's exactly what they're going to get this Saturday. If people are criticizing the Big Show, I think people are looking at the wrong end of the Main Event."
