Shaq Makes Surprise Appearance at WrestleMania, Choke Slams Kane in His Size 22 Reebok Shaqnosis (Video)
On the whole, WrestleMania 32 was not quite as entertaining as previous WrestleManias. However, there were a few spectacular moments, like Shane McMahon jumping from the top of a 20-foot steel cage, and the surprise return of The Rock and John Cena, who was supposed to miss WrestleMania because of shoulder surgery.
Also pretty awesome: a surprise appearance by NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, a.k.a. Shaq, a.k.a. Shaq Fu, a.k.a. The Big Diesel, a.k.a. The Big Aristotle. He turned up as the last entrant in the Andre The Giant Battle Royale, and upon entering the ring—wearing some sweet size 22 Reebok Shaqnosis OG kicks—he immediately got into a staredown with Big Show that culminated with a co-choke slam of Kane.
It was glorious. Take a look:
Of course, the Big Aristotle has some history with The Big Show. Shaq hosted an episode of Raw back in 2009, during which he got into a confrontation with Big Show.
If you don’t remember that (because you’re 13), here’s a refresher:
Unfortunately, Shaq did not win the Battle Royale. But seriously, how awesome would it be if Shaq joined the WWE fulltime?
