At 2017's Wrestlemania 33, there was much rumour and speculation that The Big Show and Shaquille O'Neal might wrestle each other in a singles match. The match never went down for various reasons even though Show got into amazing shape for it. However, in a recent interview Shaq said there is a lot of time between now and April:
"Next April? Well, I got a little time to get these back up. You ready for that Big Show? I don't think you are baby. Oh can't squeeze that. Can't squeeze a rock can you? I'll think about it."
Shaq also said he wasn't entirely sure why their original program never happened but he gave the big man his props:
"I don't know what happened. 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."
