– 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.”
