Paul Wight Thinks Shaq Match Will Happen In AEW
Could the battle of the giants finally take place?
After years of teasing, what ifs, and staredowns, Paul Wight is finally hopeful of wrestling a full match against Shaquille O’Neal in an AEW ring.
Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Wight has said a match is a possibility without the constraints of WWE, saying:
"I think that will happen now because there is not as much red tape. He's already competed with Cody Rhodes. It was him and Jade Cargill vs. Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. That was an incredible showing for Shaq, so hopefully, we'll be able to cut some more red tape and make it happen. He's been hitting the gym lately, Shaq is pretty big right now. He's huge Shaq, that's the best way of looking at it. I think he is nervous about me so he is putting on a bit of size. Whereas I am "Tall Paul" the car salesman [laughs].”
The two were allegedly pencilled in for a match at WrestleMania 33 but it never happened, and so far the closest the two have come to a full bout was a brief spot in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32.
