Latest on Shaq Appearing at WrestleMania, Royal Rumble Matches, Lesnar-WWE

– Matches booked but not yet announced for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view include John Cena vs. Kane and Big Show vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Mark Henry for the World Heavyweight Title in a three-way. At one point, there was talk of doing Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes.

– Word is that basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal is either very close to signing or has already signed a deal for WrestleMania 28. WWE creative has been told to come up with ideas for him.

Regarding Brock Lesnar, nobody has been told to come up with anything for him and when one person asked Vince McMahon that if Lesnar did come in, would Paul Heyman be part of the package, Vince said Heyman wouldn’t. The feeling is that if any talks are happening between WWE and Lesnar, it would be kept very quiet and creative would be kept out of the loop until the time is right.

    Shaq Vs Big Show would make a little bit of sense if Show turned heel. They did have the confrontation when Guest Hosts were active.

    I’d rather not see Show Vs Henry Vs Bryan. I’m just not into the feud. It seems to unstructured with random confrontations. I think Barrett, Sheamus or Rhodes would be a better choice for the next feud.

    Lesner vs. Taker needs to happen, so Taker can kick his ass finally. He’s owed him (in storyline) since 2003.

    Plus, that match would actually be entertaining. HHH vs. Taker part 3? NO THANK YOU.

    ^agreed. It makes more sense for Shaq to go against someone like Henry since Shaq will likely be the babyface going in.

    Lesnar v. Taker this year???

    I hope Big show isn’t wrestling another celebrity. Have Shaq face Henry.

  • Here Comes The Pain

    Makes more sense now to have Lesnar v. Taker than it did last year.
