– No word yet on what’s going on with WWE and Shaquille O’Neal. He keeps saying he will be at WrestleMania 28 but WWE’s plans for Big Show indicate otherwise. Shaq was in talks with WWE to appear and sources indicate he was planned for the March 5th Boston RAW Supershow. If Shaq doesn’t appear on that show or isn’t hinted at in some way, he most likely won’t be a part of WrestleMania.
– Right now the plan is to air the Hall of Fame inductions of Edge and the Four Horsemen on the USA Network.
While Yokozuna is still expected to be announced, it’s now believed someone other than The Rock will be inducting him but that’s not confirmed. Edge is scheduled to be inducted last and by Christian.
The Horsemen will be inducted by Triple H, Shawn Michaels and Dusty Rhodes. There was a push to get Dusty in on the induction because he is the one most associated with the Horsemen as big rivals in their heydays.
Edge has been given a 10 minute time limit on his speech and the Horsemen as a group have a 10 minute limit.
