Shaq confirms Wrestlemania match with Big Show probably won’t happen

During a recent episode of The Big Podcast With Shaq, the former NBA star confirmed reports that his Wrestlemania match against the Big Show in Orlando this April may not happen. If the bout doesn’t come to fruition, however, O’Neil claims that it isn’t because of him:

“That’s probably right. It’s not my fault. That’s all you need to know. It ain’t my fault,” O’Neal said. “Oh, it ain’t my fault. It [doesn’t] matter what they say. I’m just letting you know. It has nothing to do with The Diesel and his management. That’s all I’ve got to say. But, but, but, it’s not totally off yet. But it’s not looking good. But it doesn’t matter. I’m still working out. I still look way better than Big Show and I’ll still meet him anywhere he wants to meet.”

Although it looks like the bout won’t happen, Shaq is still preparing just in case it does and already has quite the training regimen laid out:

“These next 30 days, I’m about to go hard, so I’m still doing it like it’s going down. I actually start two-a-days on March 1st. Then, it’s going down. I’m going on vacation from March 2nd to the 7th. And then, from the 8th to like the 29th, two-a-days, sometimes three-a-days. It’s going down, Big Show. Just saying, it ain’t me, America.”

    What is the point of this?? Mania is meant to be the biggest show of the year and they give us show vs shaq??

    “confirms probably”

    Not to mention that a small build up like this, with Show loosing… how does that look for him? Celeb’s always win. But there’s no build up, no hype. Show out there alone with nothing but loosing character. It’s a loose, loose.

    That was a serious cop-out vignette on his part. “boo hoo, me” much? Damn… that is NOT the way to build up for a celebrity match! Shaq is a really bad match seller.

    Funny. I was referring to Shaq but after reading it again, I see your point.

    I know. I don’t know why they keep letting Mike Diaz post articles.

    I wish he had proper grammar so I could understand him.

    WWE should have Big Show wear normal trunks to show off his physique, and make a universal title challenge run – “I am a new man and a new giant and even Shaq is afraid of me!”. If Shaq makes it, great, we do that instead. If not, Show has a place at Mania without him. Show has really picked up steam and I would like his last run (at least with motivated big show) to be special and not just blown off and forgotten because “creative doesn’t have anything” for a 7 foot out of shape sloth who turned over a new leaf… (people love that stuff).

    AKA – I want more money now that it’s happening, than I asked for when we first negotiated.
