WWE confirmed reports that The Big Show will need to undergo hip surgery. The surgery is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 29th after originally being scheduled for this week but delayed due to Hurricane Irma.
Big Show made the following remarks to WWE.com regarding the surgery:
“I have to have the hip resurfaced,” Big Show stated. “There’s been some traumatic injury done to the hip in the match with Braun Strowman. It’s frustrating as hell to be in the best shape I’ve been in my career, but that match, I kind of put a lot out on the table and I’m paying the price for it now. Going forward, I’m very confident in the medical team that’s doing the surgery … we’re gonna go forward from there and see what my options are.”
While Big Show mentioned that he suffered the injury during his match with Strowman, that’s not the case. He actually needed the surgery before heading into the match.
