Hell in a Cell: Big Show vs Rusev
Big Show’s ongoing problems with Rusev and Lana may have landed The World’s Largest Athlete in sensitivity training and even caused an apparent rift with tag partner and friend Mark Henry, but at Hell in a Cell, Big Show’s biggest problem will be The Super Athlete himself.
On Oct. 26, the two titans will clash in a rematch of gigantic proportions, WWE.com has confirmed.
It was a vow to Henry that led Big Show to Rusev’s door in the first place. After The Hero of the Russian Federation put down The World’s Strongest Man, Big Show saw it as his duty to redeem Henry. In trying to accomplish that task, Show has twice knocked out Rusev, making Lana’s hulking client appear more vulnerable than any Superstar, including Henry, has done, to date. By tearing Rusev’s giant Russian flag down from the rafters weeks back, Show garnered the support of the WWE Universe in America, even if that same defiant act also came at the expense of WWE having to issue an apology afterward.
In a match against Big Show on the Oct. 13 edition of Raw, however, Rusev demonstrated exactly why Lana believes he is a superior competitor. After a back-and-forth brawl, the Eastern European juggernaut managed to land the 7-foot giant in the Accolade, which was subsequently broken up by an interfering Henry.
Can Rusev repeat that same feat at Hell in a Cell, to winning results? Or will Big Show, having been trapped in Rusev’s match-ending hold once before, KO Punch his way to victory? Watch this epic collision between two of WWE’s largest Superstars when Hell in a Cell airs live on WWE Network and pay-per-view on Sunday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
