Last month at the ESPYs, the WWE’s Big Show threw down the gauntlet — he wanted to get in the ring with Shaquille O’Neal.

In case you didn’t catch it, Shaq’s response was “You sure you want to do that?”

Yes he does.

The Big Show confirmed to the Shanghai Daily that the fight is going to happen (big hat tip to Matt Moore of CBS’s Eye on Basketball — I think he subscribes to Shanghai Daily).

At next year’s Wrestlemania in Orlando, Wight will also come face to face with former NBA basketball player Shaquille O’Neal, another sporting heavyweight, for a match that might just shake the foundations of pro wrestling.

“We’ll have one heck of a match and we’ll see what’s up. We’ll give the fans a treat.”

Just make sure that ring has extra supports. When one of them hits the mat, it could end up on the Richter scale.
