• Old School Wrestling Celebrity Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Celebrity & Basketball Hall Of Famer Shaquille O’Neal turns 49 today.
The NBA Legend is a lifelong professional wrestling fan and had several appearances for various promotions over the years, such as Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, Total Nonstop Action (now known as iMPACT Wrestling), World Wrestling Entertainment (fka WWF) and All Elite Wrestling.
O’Neal, who’s a personal friend of Hulk Hogan, presented the WCW World Heavyweight Championship belt to the Hulkster, after the main event of the ‘WCW Bash At The Beach 1994’ pay-per-view.
Shaq was seen in the crowd during the Attitude Era and was even allowed backstage with the WWF Superstars.
The former L.A. Lakers MVP served as the WWE RAW guest host in 2009 and joined his buddy Hulk Hogan during a backstage segment on TNA iMPACT in 2012, but had his first ever professional wrestling match in 2016, when he was a surprise entrant in the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at the WWE WrestleMania 32 PPV.
Shaq competed in a tag team match on this week’s AEW Dynamite, where he teamed up with Jade Cargill to defeat Cody Rhodes & Red Velvet.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAQUILLE O’NEAL!
