Braun Strowman: WWE’s Perfect Best At The Best Time Possible

If Jim Ross is right, then WWE is going to have a hard time getting Braun Strowman over as a heel on Monday nights. As he said on jrsbarbq.com, Strowman, who has been impressive the past two weeks in confrontations with both Roman Reigns and then Big Show, continues to build a solid fan base, which will make it difficult for some buy into the notion he is a true heel. “It was a...

The Big Show says Shaq’s weight gain is why WrestleMania showdown isn’t happening

WrestleMania 33 is coming up and that means that matches are materializing bit by bit. One match that you won’t likely be seeing is a showdown between the Big Show and Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaquille O’Neal’s WrestleMania Match With The Big Show Appears To Be On

The Big Aristotle, meet The Big Show. Shaquille O’Neal certainly seems like a guy unafraid to try new things. He proved as much in April when he made a surprise appearance at WrestleMania 32 as part of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
