Shaq on upcoming AEW match: “I’m winning. Guaranteed”
Speaking to The Associated Press, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal discussed his upcoming tag team match set for tomorrow night’s AEW Dynamite. Shaq is set to team with Jade Cargill against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet on the TNT broadcast. Below are some highlights.
Shaquille O’Neal on how the match will play out: “Oh, I’m winning. Guaranteed. I’m the type, I can never back down from a challenge. I’m not a professional wrestler, but I’ve been in a match before. I’ve got a lot of moves in my arsenal. 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. I’m the type that if I have a look and see you do it, I got it.”
On what he told Hulk Hogan after becoming an NBA star: “I told him, ‘you broke my heart when you body-slammed Andre the Giant.’ I cried as a kid. I really did.”
