#4 One on One in Next April

The gigantic 7ft tall grappler with size 18 feet will go one-on-one with the NBA great at the showpiece event next April.

The Big Show, 44, is already gearing up for the scrap. He's in the best shape he has been in in 20 years, and says he aims to be under 400lbs by the time ‘Mania rolls round. That's still mammoth 28 stone.

Speaking to SunSport in London, the Big Show said: "I haven't been this lean since early in my WCW career.

"We're going to start the program around January and pick it up full force.

"It's a spectacle match. Shaq is a world renowned athlete and he's also a big fan. I know him. He's going to take it serious. He's going to train and learn. I think a lot people are going to be surprised."
