At this point, Shaq vs JaVale McGee would make for a more interesting match-up than Big Show.

Sounds like Big Show worked himself into a shoot.

That's a spicy meatball.

It's "speecy spicy," thank you very much.

So Shaq apparently said his match with Big Show at Mania "probably isn't going to happen". Not sure if this is a kayfabe thing and if it's going to be storyline related, or if it's for real. But if it's for real, what does Show do at Mania now? That leaves a spot open for a match on the Mania card. Why not do a Braun Strowman/Big Show rematch at Mania? Strowman also has nothing to do except win the Andre Battle Royal, so why not give him a higher profile match? Everybody has been raving about their RAW match, so I say do it again but at Mania with Big Show's career on the line and have Braun retire Big Show.

Have you seen Big Show recently? He doesn't look like a guy whose going to retire anytime soon.

It's a shame the traditional 5 doesn't have a place in today's NBA. Show looks like he could be the new Shaq at his current physique.

WON just posted an update on the story (basically everything that has already been brought up)

Quote

One of WrestleMania 33's planned matches seems to be in serious doubt.

While responding to rumors surrounding his scheduled WrestleMania match against Big Show, Shaquille O'Neal said on his podcast this week that the bout "probably" won't be happening.

"It's not going to happen?" Shaq asked. "That's probably right. It's not my fault, that's all you need to know. It ain't my fault. Oh, it ain't my fault."

Shaq went on to say that the plans likely falling through have nothing to do with him or his management. He said that it isn't definitive that the match is off yet, though things aren't looking good. He claimed that he's still training like it's going to take place and challenged Big Show to meet him wherever he wants to meet, leaving the door open for this to be part of a storyline if the match does occur.

Big Show vs. Shaq had long been penciled in for WrestleMania in Orlando. Shaq appeared at WrestleMania 32 last year as a surprise entrant in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, where he had a face off with Big Show. They also did an angle where Shaq accepted Big Show's challenge at the ESPY Awards last summer.

Much of the build for the match had been done on social media and based around the two attempting to get in shape for WrestleMania. But speculation that the match could possibly be off began to increase over the last couple of weeks.

In a WWE.com article about his recent weight loss, Big Show said that Shaq not taking the match seriously was why it may not be happening.

"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.'"

Time to bring back Cryme Tyme and book Big Show vs Shad and confuse the audience of being dyslexic or something

Meltzer just tweeted about how Gordon Solie was one of the old-timers who thought the NFL was worked. Well, the regular season was. The Super Bowl was a shoot.

Is anything ever Shaq's fault?

Hey, I'll give Shaq credit.  When Kobe got one more ring than Shaq and he publicly called him out on it, Shaq at least ate shit and took it.

Seeing Tom's texts just makes me so wistful and sad that we didn't have the same technology when Gene Okerlund was trucking places and fucking faces.

I was gonna add the "Kids, get your parent permission etc." part but given the context, that's wildly inappropriate.
