The biggest wrestling event of the year is just a few weeks away, and fans can’t stop talking about all the possible Wrestlemania 33 matches. One fight everyone’s waiting for is the much hyped face off between the Big Show and Shaquille O’Neal. While rumors have been swirling that the fight may not happen, Shaq confirmed that he is in talks with WWE officials to make it happen.

Over the weekend, WWE superstar, Big Show, hinted at the meltdown of the much awaited match between him and the NBA Hall of Famer. Speaking with ESPN, the former WWE Heavyweight champion said it’s Shaq and his camp that have been stalling the talks.

He even slammed O’Neal for his weight, saying he is “getting fatter every week.”

"It's on Shaq. He has to figure things out in his own camp. Maybe he is just too scared to show up because he's too busy riding around singing karaoke with John Cena, and going to Krispy Kreme and getting fatter every week,” Big Show told the outlet.

The wrestler also noted that he has been working on keeping his weight within a reasonable limit — weighing at 379 pounds over the weekend — while saying Shaq probably weighs 450 pounds. "He's gotten pretty fat,” he added.
