Update: The Very Latest on Shaquille O’Neal’s WMania Status

Nick Paglino

Big ShowThe Wrestling Observer is reporting that despite claims by Shaquille O'Neal that he will indeed be at WrestleMania this year, there is still no definitive word on whether or not WWE intends for him to be a part of the big event.

Shaq has noted several times that he will be appearing at the show, and even said back in December that he would be wrestling Big Show on the PPV card. However, WWE announced other plans for Big Show at the Smackdown tapings this week (we will not spoil the results here in this article) and it appears as if the rumored Show vs Shaq singles match will not be taking place.

The original plan was to have the Shaq/Show feud kick off at this Monday night's Raw at the TD Garden in Boston, so you can expect that if Shaq does not show up on Raw, or is not mentioned in anyway on the show, then negotiations between him and WWE likely fell through.
