His much anticipated face-off against Shaquille O’Neal at WrestleMania 33 may now be in jeopardy thanks to the former NBA star’s weight issues, claims Big Show.
“He’s got to be what, 440, 450 pounds?” Big Show mocked his opponent during an ESPN interview. “He’s gotten pretty fat. Me on the other hand? I just weighed in this morning — 379 pounds.”
Last year, Big Show challenged Shaquille O’Neal to a fight at Orlando, the venue of WrestleMania 33.
The two giants had faced off two years ago at WrestleMania 32 when Shaq made a surprise appearance. Their bout was cut short when other players ganged up to eliminate them.
A year on, now leaner Big Show blamed his challenger for uncertainty around their fight during his ESPN interview.
