On the Road to WrestleMania 33, Big Show and Shaq started hyping up a match at the Show of Shows, but as WrestleMania season kicked off the match fell through.
Shaq was recently asked about a potential match with Big Show during an interview with Chris Van Vliet he teased that the match could still happen.
“Is he going to be fighting?” O’Neal said. “Is he retired? I thought he retired. You lied to me, Big Show. When is it? Next April? I got enough time to get these back up. You ready for that, Big Show? I don’t think you are. Can’t squeeze that, can’t squeeze the rock, can ya? I’ll think about it.”
When asked why the match fell through in the first place, Shaq didn’t have much to say because according to him he doesn’t know what happened.
“I don’t know what happened,” he said. “Off the court, though he’s one of my favorite people. Nicest guy. I’ve always been a fan of his. I would have loved for that match to go down but I don’t know what happened.”
