WWE does damage control with Big Show's crying giant character

Considering the reaction to the angle on "Monday Night Raw" this past week, it makes sense WWE would do this.

This past Monday night's (Sept. 2, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw featured Stephanie McMahon and Triple H turning Big Show into a crying giant, a gigantic heap of tears and flesh. It was a sad display, really, not because it painted McMahon and Triple H as the dastardly duo they are, but because it made Show look downright pathetic.

Two videos to showcase as much:

That's ugly right there, and maybe even a little hard to watch.

This caused quite a few fans to point out how awful it made Show look and, in turn, later made Daniel Bryan look for hardly putting up a fight against the aforementioned pathetic mess of crying flesh.

In an attempt to do a little damage control, released an interview with Show that features the following quote:

"I don't think anyone really knows me. I'm an emotional person. Anger and frustration comes out in many ways ... I'm not afraid to hug my friends that I love and I'm not afraid to express my emotions when I'm upset. The way I look at it, I'm more of a man because I'm in touch with my emotions. I think people that deny their emotions are pretty weak individuals, if you want my honest opinion."

Well, at least that's something. It still doesn't help when he's been reduced to a broke old man who is about to die soon with no other skills than being a big man, but whatever.
