Big Show conspicuously absent from WWE Night of Champions 2013 match card

WWE "Night of Champions" is less than one week away and Big Show, who has been the focus of so much of the main storyline on television each week, is conspicuously absent from the card.

One of the biggest compliments paid to the ongoing Triple H/Stephanie McMahon "Best for Business" storyline is that, beyond consistently producing entertaining programming throughout Monday Night Raw, Main Event, and Friday Night SmackDown each week, multiple wrestlers have been able to find a connection with the audience because of it.

Suddenly, the Rhodes family is relevant again.

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary has been Big Show, who has been featured even more than current top contender to the WWE championship, Daniel Bryan. Indeed, Show has been directly involved in Triple H's business for weeks now, being forced to do "The Game's" bidding, or simply being told to sit and watch while all his babyface friends are destroyed by the evil corporation.

It's quite obviously been building to a match of some sort, possibly between the two, but as we inch closer and closer to the Night of Champions pay-per-view (PPV) event this Sunday night at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan, it's becoming more and more difficult to reconcile the fact that, well, Show doesn't even have a match on the card.

For as heavily as he's been featured on TV no less than twice a week, you would think creative would have something for him on a show that the company has to be worried won't pull a strong buyrate considering the number of injuries to top stars.

Perhaps Show will be booked for something at the SmackDown tapings tonight in Ottawa, but it's anyone's guess as to who he would be paired up with.
