Big Show thinks Shaq is backing out of their Wrestlemania 33 match

One match that WWE fans have already marked as confirmed for Wrestlemania 33 this year is The Big Show vs. Shaq. This may not be the case, however, as Show recently told WWE.com that he thinks Shaq is trying to back out of the match-up:

“I mean, here’s the thing. We shot this off at the ESPY Awards, Shaq said he’s in, I thought this would be a good match for fans to see two giants go at it. And I see Shaq riding around, singing karaoke and stopping in at Krispy Kreme. I’m like, “Hey! If you’re not gonna take it serious, find something else to do!” I’ve given 22 years of my blood, sweat and tears to this business and I’m doing this favor to Shaq. This could be my last WrestleMania. He needs to step up. I’m not trying to be mean, but my time’s valuable. I get it. I don’t have foot powder commercials, car commercials, insurance commercials. I get it. He’s a busy man. But if he’s gonna step in the ring, in my business, at our biggest event of the year? Show me you’re serious. If anything, talk a little trash. Let me know you’re motivated. Because right now? I just get the feeling he’s terrified. He shot his mouth off, he’s in over his head and he’s trying to back out. So just let me know what’s going on, brother.”

I was following an earning opportunity I came across online and I am thrilled that i made so much extra income. It’s very newbie-friendly a­n­d I am just so grateful that I found out about this.

    Yes, and that should have been his final match putting Strowman over. Shaq is going to be there. This is just all kayfabe.

    I was going to say that same thing, but then I went back to watch that match and forgot about the angle leading into it. Cody Rhodes had been mercilessly trolling The Big Show over his less than stellar Wrestlemania record before hand. Up until that match he had a 3-8 record at Wrestlemania with his only wins coming in tag-team matches to which someone else always got the fall.

    When he won the match he did a fair amount of blubbering. So I guess there was a reason for that match to be memorable.

    If the WWE was smart they would have waited with the Braun Strowman vs Big Show at Wrestemania but now everybody has seen it. So i don’t know what they going to do with Big Show for WM. I don’t see Shaq getting in the ring at Wrestlemania.

    Andre battle royal is a nothing match simply made so that mid-carders have something to do come WM.
    As for the IC win over Cody, I felt it was more about Cody losing that belt than show actually winning it.

  • CC

    For a former world champ, I doubt winning the IC title at Mania deal. And the battle royals just a way to get more people on the card. Hardly something special for a veteran.

  • MindTricked

    I’m pretty sure winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal would only be an acceptable “Wrestlemania Moment” for someone that has no ambition in the business.

    You don’t think him winning the Intercontinental title from Cody Rhodes or winning the Andre the Giant battle royal were Wrestlemania moments for him?

  • JAckh45

    Shame about this is, ya’ll know Show is going to lose… whenever its Celeb v Wrestler the Celeb wins… I cant honestly think of a time when it didn’t happen. Either by interference or DQ.
    Such a joke… You’d think the least WWE could do was give him a WM moment before he finally retires.

    Is this supposed to pass for building a storyline?
