Dot com has a kayfabe article on Big Show's absence from WWE television. Below is a quote from the piece:
"I have an ironclad contract!" he screamed through the phone. "I'll take time off any time I want to, for as long as I want to! I don’t care if Booker doesn’t like it. I’m a giant! I don’t do what other people tell me to do. They do what I tell them to do. 'Ironclad' means I answer to no one. That includes Booker, and anyone else in WWE management."
Show is actually off the road dealing with a shoulder injury. Click here for coverage by dot com.
