Shaq on Wrestlemania, “Yes I’ll be there”

Feb 20, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck

Shaquille O’Neal told gossip website that he will be
participating at this year’s WrestleMania in Miami, Florida. “Yes I’ll be
there,” exclaimed the former NBA Superstar when quizzed about hitting the
ring at the biggest wrestling show of the year. O’Neal is a huge wrestling
fan and has appeared at several WWE shows as a guest and was also the RAW
guest host in 2009. He also appeared and participated in a WCW
pay-per-view several years ago. In late December of last year, O’Neal
announced during an appearance on a radio show that he was in negotiations
to appear at WrestleMania and have a possible match against the Big Show.
The two had an altercation when O’Neal guest hosted RAW and O’Neal ended
up shoulder-blocking Show out of the ring that night. If this match ends
up happening, it will be Big Show’s third time wrestling at a WrestleMania
against a non-WWE performer. At WrestleMania 21, Show worked against
Akebono in a sumo match and then at WrestleMania 24 he wrestled boxing
superstar Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
