- WWE’s website posted a headline last night that says, “Shaq will not compete at WrestleMania.” The article is accompanied by a photo of Shaquille O’Neal and Big Show going at it in the ring back in 2009.

Shaq did an interview with HollywoodLife.com last week where he said he would be in attendance for WrestleMania 28 in Miami. Shaq did not say he would compete. WWE mentioned Shaq’s HollywoodLife.com interview but got the facts wrong. Shaq never said he would be competing. WWE wrote the following:

“Despite Shaquille O’Neal’s claim that he will compete at WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami, WWE officials have informed WWE.com that the 15-time NBA All-Star is not scheduled to appear on the card.”

    Good, that’s because nobody wanted them to. Spare us the agony. It’s clearly going to be Show vs. Rhodes for the IC title. That’s GOOD because the IC title will finally be defended at WrestleMania for once, but BAD because considering the storyline with Rhodes exploiting all of Show’s major ‘Mania losses, that means Show will most likely win the IC title. And I like Rhodes as IC champ. Show doesn’t need that.

    I think it will be Big Show vs Mark Henry. They never finished their feud.

    wwe superstars go out there all year round. for a spot on wwe card for wrestlemania. but the try to make a joke out of what is suppose to be the biggest event of the year. i’m glad shaq isn’t wrestling maybe he has respect for the business and knows it would be a joke. unlike the people in charge at wwe. Give the spot to someone who deserves it. i mean the miz isn’t on the card yet he earn my respect and i’m just a fan. how come people in charge of wwe don’t have respect for him? this is why i’m a tna fan.
