    How about Shaq vs Henry?

  • Stevie P

    All titles should be defended at Wrestlemania. You have 6 weeks for good stories plus 4 hours of PPV to build up 5 good (enough) matches. Even if Cody has to face Show that’s better than Show facing Shaq.

  • Lord KGM

    That’s because it shouldn’t be a secret! Shaq should come in soon with Rhodes as a bodyguard of some sort and Goldust joins forces with Show. A tag team match would be expected if this happened but I’d like to see it branch off into separate feuds going into the last 2 weeks of action before Wrestlemania. Shaq can’t show up for 6 Raws but maybe 3 can do the job before the big show? One now and the last 2 before the granddaddy of them all…also remember the last Raw is in ATL and TNTs studios are in ATL, actually both buildings are directly near each other, so Shaq can still fulfill his contract with TNT and appear on Raw at the same night! I’m ready to see what they do though. Maybe Shaq vs. Mr. McMahon? That would be interesting to say the least…peace

    I agree with, Bill.

    It seems that if Shaq is gonna wrestle at ‘Mania, WWE are trying to keep it as a surprise…. But Shaq seems a bit slow on the uptake, and every time WWE denies it he reconfirms it!

    50% of the program will be a recap of their tweets.

  • me

    i don’t care what shaq’s doing…

  • Bawb

    A special on the Rock vs. Cena? Really? Can you even call it a rivalry? I guess 85% will be filled with promos of them on their own.

  • Jason

    Shaq really can’t be the heel. If any knows NBA shaq was one of the most liked players by everyone fans, coaches, other players. Just wouldnt make sense for him to be the bad guy. but who knows if he will even wrestle yet.

  • shawn

    lol, listen WWE when Shaq says hes gonna do something, hes gonna do something!

  • Bill

    Well of course WWE is going to decline it! Shaq is blatantly ruining the surprise. Plus, WWE only said he’s not on the card. Randy Orton isn’t on the card, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be at WM. Honestly, who cares? WM has a stacked card already & I guess a Shaq match added is fine.

    I think they wanna do Show v Cody for the IC title, which would be bittersweet.
    Pros: Show deserves the triple crown, Start of a bigger main event push for Rhodes
    Cons: IC title could possibly lose prestige depending on how Show performs as champ, no Goldust/Cody at WM

  • Jon

    I hope he does wrestle Show. Shaq as a heel and Show as a face would be perfect. Shaq could put down Miami and talk about how they couldn’t win a championship without him and how he’s better than Lebron. It would be great.

    Shaq is going to wrestle, then not, then wrestle, then not, now he is going to compete. Sounds like people on this site don’t know what to report. Tomorrow it will say he is not wrestling.
