— The Big Show has asked WWE for some time off. He has wanted some for a while now to fully heal his injuries, but felt that leaving would run the Smackdown roster too thin. Now that he’s on RAW, he feels that the roster there can afford to give him some time off for a while.
The Big Show is also said to be unhappy with the abrupt dropping of his planned program with Chris Masters. No reason has been given for dropping that angle.
