Big Show screamed ‘double standard’; Big Show vs. Kane announced

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — On an explosive SmackDown, several former World Heavyweight Champions battled to impress the powers-that-be in the hopes that they might join Rey Mysterio, Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton in the World Heavyweight Title No. 1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match at the upcoming pay-per-view of the same name. Plus, not even a suspension could keep World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio from bringing some color into Big Show’s life.

An emotionally driven Big Show opened SmackDown, claiming the recent treatment he had endured was completely unacceptable — a byproduct of being, in his opinion, unpopular. He said that when a Superstar was popular — like Alberto Del Rio — he could do whatever they wanted to.

The giant insisted he simply couldn’t understand the WWE Universe. Either he was getting called a “bully” for fighting Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez or a “coward” for hanging back in his hotel room to conduct his business. In contrast, he saw World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio being cheered for attacking him in his hotel room on Raw.

Regardless, The World’s Largest Athlete insisted the World Title would once again be his at WWE Elimination Chamber.

Show went on to say SmackDown General Manager Booker T was largely to blame for the “double standard” he was experiencing, claiming the head of the blue brand was jealous of him. Scoffing at Del Rio’s suspension, Big Show suggested that Booker may have helped his attacker get his room information in the first place.

Denying the claims of the World Title No. 1 contender, Booker advised the enormous Superstar to worry instead about his huge SmackDown contest: Big Show vs. Kane!
