Shaquille O’Neal will remain at TNT/WarnerMedia after signing a multi-year deal with the company and now he wants to get back in the wrestling ring.
Shaq will take on multiple roles with WarnerMedia as part of his new deal and in the press release, an appearance on AEW television was teased.
Shaq Fu Coming to AEW?
Could Shaq return to the ring, making a cameo at a future All Elite Wrestling (AEW) event on TNT? We shall see….
AEW has plenty of crossover with the NBA as both leagues air on TNT and are often used together in promotional material.
Speaking to The Athletic, Shaq elaborated on a possible AEW appearance, saying, “I’d love to fight Cody. Write it. Print it. Text it to him. Call AEW up and tell them.”
Shaq wrestled in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32 and made an appearance at WCW Bash at the Beach 1994 alongside Hulk Hogan. Shaq also has history with Chris Jericho as the two got into a confrontation on a 2009 episode of WWE Raw where Shaw kissed Jericho on the forehead.
Google it, Chuck.
