It literally is the Shaq attack! Shaquille O’Neal, 44, FINALLY made his WWE debut at WrestleMania 32 on Apr. 3. The LA Lakers great appeared with a number of top wrestlers, including Big Show in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. How long did Shaq last? Click down to find out!
Shaq was in hilarious form, and was the last to enter the ring, much to the astonishment of his opponents. What made it even more interesting was how much his 6’10” frame towered over everyone, including Big Show!
But despite being an obvious crowd favorite, his rivals didn’t take too kindly to him. In fact, Heath Slater, Curtis Axel, Adam Rose, Bo Dallas, Big Show, Kane, Tyler Breeze, Jack Swagger, Fandango, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Konnor, Viktor, Goldust and R-Truth all ganged up on poor Shaq and threw him out of the ring and out of the contest.
It was a short-lived debut, all of less than 5-minutes, but it showed that Shaq can rough it up with the best wrestlers. He was simply awesome entertainment. Let’s hope the WWE welcomes him back soon!
Elsewhere at WrestleMania 32, Shane McMahon and The Undertaker provided one of the biggest highlights in their Hell in the Cell battle. Shane made a leap of faith off the top of the cell, with an attempted dropped elbow on The Undertaker. However, he was soon beaten after The Undertaker moved at the final moment and Shane cannoned into a table and was out. The Undertaker pinned him and it was game over.
New faces are always welcome in the WWE, and seeing Shaq brighten up proceeding was a real treat. Maybe next time we can see a little more of him!
