Shaq squared up to Big Show in the “Andre the Giant battle memorial” at WrestleMania 32

In 1994, the NBA legend, Shaquille O’Neal made his first appearance in the WWE (then known as WWF) as he joined Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan and presented him with the World Heavyweight Championship. O’Neal returned to make a guest appearance in the WWE in 2009 and got into a physical altercation with another giant, the Big Show. His most memorable appearance in WWE, though, was when he appeared at WrestleMania in 2016.

Shaq joined the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale at WrestleMania 32. There, he squared off once again with the Big Show when he entered the ring. However, Omos might be a different animal in comparison to the Big Show as he will tower down on Shaq if the two ever cross paths – making it all the more harder for the four-time NBA Championship to emerge supreme.
