WrestleMania 33 is still a long way off and there is nothing certain yet as far as the cards for that event. There are dream matches that many fans want to see, including one pitting former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal and the Big Show.


Rewinding a bit to WrestleMania 32, O’Neal turned out to be the surprise entry in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. He was the last entry in the mix and the “Diesel” immediately set his eyes on “Big Show”.

Who is more immovable?

The Big Show has always been known as one of the touch wrestlers the WWE has had to offer and facing him will always be a tall order. For his part, O’Neal is not small fry himself. He has proven that he is an immovable object on the court during his NBA days though it remains to be seen if he can establish the same niche on a WWE ring.

A potential showdown between “Shaq” and “Show” is not a far-fetched idea for WrestleMania 33 though it all depends on Vince McMahon’s wishes. WrestleMania has been known to get stars involved so the possibility of seeing the gigantic showdown is leaning pretty much as ‘highly likely.’
