Looks like Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) is going to have a huge battle on his hands when Burn Notice makes its much-anticipated return from hiatus later this summer. Rather, he’s going to have to battle a huge man.

WWE’s Big Show (né Paul Donald Wight Jr.) will appear in the show’s fourth episode as Griffin Black, a low-IQ lowlife who works as a hired hand for more dangerous foes, EW has been told exclusively.

The character description describes him as a 6’6”, 300-pound “monster of a man who looks like a grizzly bear that just escaped from the zoo” with a rap sheet as vast as it is troubling (robbery to indecent exposure).

The guest spot marks the wrestler’s second acting gig on the USA network. He previously appeared on last season of Royal Pains. Burn Notice returns June 23.
