WrestleMania 32 is behind us and while the RAW that followed seemingly reshaped the entire WWE landscape, the show on Sunday could still have some huge implications to come.

We were treated to our fair share of surprises at Mania on Sunday night but one of the biggest was the appearance of future NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

First of many?

The LA Lakers star was the final entrant in the match threatened the steal the show during his face off with the Big Show.

After Show and O'Neal eliminated a couple of competitors, they clashed themselves before every other competitor combined to eliminate the two big men.

It was a memorable segment in front of a WrestleMania record crowd but it looks like this feud may not be over.

Talking on Inside the NBA, Shaq claimed that a match between himself and Big Show will be happening at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando.

Of course a lot can happen in the next year, but it looks like the seven foot basketball legend is eyeing up a big WrestleMania clash.

Following his appearance at AT&T Stadium, Shaq spoke with Renee Young and although he never mentioned WrestleMania 33, he seemed adamant that the Big Show hasn't seen the last of him.

A clash between the two big men at next year's Showcase of the Immortals would make for a very interesting celebrity angle.

Of course, Big Show is no stranger to working celebrity WrestleMania matches.

Big Name opponents

The Big Show has often been criticised for losing the big matches at WrestleMania and when he has clashed with celebrities on the grandest stage, it hasn't exactly gone well for him.

At WrestleMania 21, Big Show took on Sumo legend Akebono in a sumo match which saw Show lose after being thrown from the ring.

A mere three years later at WrestleMania XXIV, he took on boxer Floyd Mayweather and suffered a knock out defeat.

It hasn't gone well for Big Show when facing celebrities at WrestleMania, but who knows, Mania 33 could be his big chance.
