Big Show made his return to television on last night's (May 30, 2016) episode of Monday Night Raw in Green Bay. He didn't wrestle, or even do anything anywhere close to the ring. Instead, he simply showed up backstage to give Apollo Crews some "veteran advice."

It seems clear his new role in the so-called "new era" is to help up-and-coming potential stars like Crews get over. In an interview with Miami Herald, Show said he's just fine with that but he's also looking toward the future:

"All great things come to an end. So for me I'm looking at projects outside of WWE and maybe moving into something else in the future, but my heart is with WWE. I love helping the younger talent. I love representing WWE like with Make-A-Wish, Be a STAR, Special Olympics. I think I'll always have a home in WWE."

"I've had a great career and had a lot of fun. So whatever happens in the future, I'm gonna take it. If I get a phone call tomorrow, and Vince [McMahon] says, 'Thank you very much. I appreciate everything you've done.' Well, that said, I can hold my head high and go on and do other things. I don't want to ever look back and say, 'I wish I could have,' or 'I wish I would have.' I'm just a guy who is very thankful. I still have my health, and I still get a chance to do something I love every now and then."

Earlier this year, Show made clear he doesn't have any plans to retire anytime soon, feeling as though he has at least two years left in the tank. If he spends those two years helping wrestlers like Crews grow, it will be two years well spent.

We shall see.
