Shaquille O’Neal made his highly anticipated debut in All Elite Wrestling on Wednesday, fighting in a mixed tag-team match with Jade Cargill against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. The Big Diesel had already warned Rhodes about what could happen to him if he caught the pro wrestler.
It was a very entertaining match, with Shaq showing some things that he learned in his short stints with WCW, WWE, and now with AEW, one of the most entertaining companies in the world right now. The ladies did a great job, always keeping things interesting and setting things up for their partners.
Shaq even honored late wrestler Brodie Lee, who passed away in December of 2020, making his signature move on Rhodes.

At some point, the 4x NBA champion was thrown through two tables in the best moment of the night. He went through those things and absolutely broke them.

In the end, Cargill beat Red Velvet, getting the win for herself and the Los Angeles Lakers legend.
It was a very entertaining fight, with Shaq doing some interesting stuff. In the end, he got the W but at what price? That was really painful to watch.
