Big Show, real name Paul Wight, did so during an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated.

The Big Show Discusses WWE Return
“They had me in an SUV with tainted windows, and I had a big Chrome Hearts hooded sweatshirt that I had over my head,” said Wight. “I tried to hunch over and hide. Once we got back to an area that no one could see, I walked into a private changing area.”
During his time away from WWE, he had to undergo the knife several times. In fact, in the last two years, he’s undergone five surgeries.
This is something that Show talked about it being a hard fight during that time to get back in the ring and get back to a legit competitive state of mind and state of body
“My hip joint looked like a cracked bowling ball, and there were problems doing the surgery with someone of my size. I was depressed, my career was being taken away from me.
Show continued by noting that he went through IV PICC lines for dealing with a surgical infection, to replacement joints. He noted that he always believed that he as going to get back to a point where he could compete.
Show added that hearing an incredibly positive response from the crowd was something that he knew was going to happen and tried to enjoy the moment.
Show was back in action on Monday’s episode of RAW by working a fistfight bout alongside Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe against Seth Rollins and AOP.
