Standing on the shoulders of a giant

Standing on the ring apron at WWE Over the Limit, Big Show held the end of John Laurinaitis’ tenure as the General Manager of SmackDown and Raw in the palm of his massive right hand.

After single-handedly carrying a fleeing “Big Johnny” back to ringside from the stands, the giant - who was fired in humiliating fashion less than one week earlier by “Mr. Excitement” himself - literally had his former boss by the throat. (PHOTOS) He needed only to hurl the GM in John Cena’s direction to set up an Attitude Adjustment that would cement the end of the "People Power" administration once and for all.

The fact Big Show chose to bail out the "People Power" administration by belting the Cenation leader with a wicked WMD should come as no surprise to the WWE Universe, though. The World’s Largest Athlete made a controversial choice at the May 20 pay-per-view, but history shows that it’s a choice he’s made countless times before.

In that respect, Big Show simply opened a new chapter in his long history of assisting some of the most devious players in WWE history as they assert their power. It’s a troubling pattern that harkens all the way back to his WWE debut in 1999 and now rears itself once more to the benefit of John Laurinaitis.
