Shaquille O’Neal is the greatest celebrity wrestler of all time according to All Elite Wrestling president Tony Khan.
Khan spoke very highly of the NBA legend during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
“Shaq is the greatest celebrity wrestler of all time,” Khan said. “Backstage, I’ve never seen anyone come in and be more genuine, spend more time working on the craft for months, as well as paying respect to the wrestlers. This is one of the biggest stars in the world, and he came in to help us. He gave to the wrestling business in a way that was incredible, and I’d be remiss not to mention that.”
As you’ll recall, Shaq worked a match for AEW last month.
It all went down in the opening match of the March 3rd Dynamite which saw Cody Rhodes team with Red Velvet to take on the powerhouse duo of Shaq and Jade Cargill.
At one point during the match, Cody cross-bodied Shaq off the apron through two tables on the outside!
As we previously reported, Shaq’s AEW involvement began when he called Cody Rhodes out in an interview with The Athletic.
