Backstage News on The Big Show's Current WWE Storyline

Backstage News on The Big Show's Current WWE Storyline
As noted, last night's RAW episode saw Buddy Murphy joining Seth Rollins' new stable, helping "The Monday Night Messiah" and the AOP during the "Fist Fight" Main Event.

According to the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Rey Mysterio is still expected to be joining the babyface team against Seth Rollins' crew. His program with Andrade for the United States Title is just to fill time until Andrade moves on to his next challenger.

Dave Meltzer went on to report that The Big Show was not meant to be involved in the storyline for the long-term. With Mysterio currently feuding with Andrade, the face side was down a man and Big Show was brought in as a favor to get through this period. However, with Murphy joining the heel side, the babyfaces are still down a man once Mysterio joins them, so Big Show may be sticking around for longer than originally planned.

Mysterio is currently scheduled to face Andrade in a ladder match next week on Raw for the U.S. Title.
