Travel Issues Cause WWE Stars to Miss Live Events, Adam Pearce Works as Ring Announcer, Shaq/Big Show


Thanks to Chris Van Vliet for the following:

I just uploaded the interview I did with Shaquille O’Neal while he was promoting the movie UNCLE DREW in Miami, FL. Being a massive wrestling fan, I had to ask him what happened with his rumored WrestleMania match with Big Show. He also went on to call out Big Show for a possible match at WrestleMania 35.

Would he want to face Big Show in a match at WrestleMania 35?
“Next April? Well I got a little time to get these back up (rolls up his sleeve and flexes his bicep). You ready for that Big Show? I don’t think you are baby. Oh can’t squeeze that. Can’t squeeze a rock can you? I’ll think about it.”

Why he didn’t have a match with Big Show at WrestleMania 33:
“I don’t know what happened. Off the court though he’s one of my favorite people. Nicest guy. I’ve always been a fan of his. I would have loved for that match to go down but I don’t know what happened.”

Travel issues caused several RAW Superstars to miss Friday’s WWE live event in Rapid City, South Dakota and Saturday’s show in Bismarck, North Dakota. It looks like talents flying out of Florida missed the shows.

WWE producer Adam Pearce worked as a ring announcer this weekend, apparently replacing JoJo. Bayley made it to Saturday’s show but missed Friday’s show. Sasha Banks also had the weekend off due to the travel issues. RAW Tag Team Champion Matt Hardyworked singles matches with Mojo Rawley this weekend because Bray Wyatt was unable to make it.

Drew McIntyre was with WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler at ringside for his 2 of 3 Falls win over Seth Rollins on Friday and teamed with Ziggler for a loss to Roman Reigns and Rollins on Saturday but barely made it to Friday’s show. PWInsider notes that McIntyre spent most of Friday at the airport and made it to the arena while Rollins and Ziggler were in the ring for the main event. McIntyre cut the promo seen below and went out to the ring to be in Ziggler’s corner. Also below are related tweets from Pearce, Bayley and Banks:
