Shaq Is Set To Wrestle for AEW, Explains Strategy: "I'm Going to Display This Power"
There seems to be a never-ending list of things that Shaquille O'Neal must try and the next thing on this list is professional wrestling. Everyone knows the household name, "Shaq" and his impressive stature. The NBA Hall of Famer is set to show off his best moves in the ring for All Elite Wrestling. Shaq has commented that he has been interested in and watching wrestling ever since he was a teenager, and now standing at 7'1", it's time for him to pit against any willing opponent.
Shaq shared with the Associated Press, “I’m the type that if I have a look and see you do it, I got it,” O’Neal said. His NBA nickname "Shaq Diesel" was apparently first reserved as a wrestling name, so it seems that the sports icon is returning to his first, or second, love. “I’m the type, I can never back down from a challenge,” “I’m not a professional wrestler, but I’ve beenin a match before.I’ve got a lot of moves in my arsenal," he continued. "When you step inside somebody’s world, you have to stick to what you’re masterful at. I’m not acrobatic. I’m not going to be jumping off the ropes. I’m coming with the power game. When I get hands on him, I’m going to display this power.”
