AEW has announced that NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal will appear during this week’s AEW Dynamite episode on TNT.
Shaq will be on Dynamite for an interview with Tony Schiavone, where he will address the company.
An appearance by Shaq was teased several weeks back during the debut segment for Jade Cargill. Cargill responded to Cody Rhodes calling himself a “giant killer” and said she knows a real giant – Shaq. This led to Brandi Rhodes confronting Cargill, and rumors of a potential mixed tag team match. Shaq, who works on TNT’s Inside The NBA show and was backstage for AEW Full Gear last month, also teased an AEW appearance back in August when he said he wanted to fight Cody during a press release to announce his new multi-year contract with WarnerMedia.
