The last great participation of the Big Show in WWE was specified as a “special main event” of the last edition of Wrestlemania. There, after Drew McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE title, he had to immediately face the giant with the counterlona claw. But that special fight was featured a day later, on the RAW show.
