PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that Big Show’s involvement with The Bar is currently planned to be a long term alliance and that WWE is currently considering the name “Showbar” for the new stable. The name was used backstage at SmackDown 1000 but it is not confirmed at the moment if that will be the official televised name of the new group going forward.
