Tony Khan Says Shaquille O'Neal Is The Most Humble Guest AEW Has Ever Had

Shaquille O'Neal made quite the impression on those within AEW.

The NBA legend stepped into an AEW ring in March 2021, teaming with Jade Cargill to battle Cody Rhodes & Red Velvet. Though he took a fall from the ring apron through a table, Shaq's team was still able to emerge victoriously on that night.

Speaking with Josh Martinez of Z100 New York, Tony Khan explained why Shaq is arguably the best guest AEW has ever had.

"We've probably never had a better guest in AEW than Shaq. He was so great on every level to us. Not just a hard worker and put in a great wrestling match, but also backstage the most humble person we've ever had in the history of the company in terms of coming in. He went around and thanked every wrestler and it was unbelievable to all of these pro wrestlers to have Shaq coming up to them and saying nice things but also saying, 'I did my best out there, I hope I didn't embarrass anyone. I just want to make wrestling look good because I like wrestling.' To hear that from Shaq of all people, one of the biggest sports stars of all time, one of the greatest athletes ever, that was so cool," Khan said.

Shaq was carted into an ambulance after the bout and then magically disappeared. He has hinted at returning to wrestling, but nothing has come to fruition.
