One of the matches expected to happen at WrestleMania is The Big Show vs former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. However, the lack of commitment from Shaq’s part has his opponent worried.
“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,” Big Show told WWE.COM in an interview that tackled his recent weight cut and body transformation.
Big Show said that if Shaq is not going to take this serious, he better find something else to do as he’s given 22 years to this business and he’s doing this favor to the former NBA champion.
“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,” Big Show explained.
Shaq appeared at last year’s WrestleMania and the two squared off during the Andre The Giant Memorial battle royal.
