It was previously reported that NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal recently signed a brand-new multi-year contract extension with WarnerMedia to continue his work with TNT’s Inside the NBA. A report also indicated that Shaq’s new contract may involve him making an appearance for AEW and possibly face former TNT Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody.
He would then comment by saying, “I’d love to fight Cody.” “Write it. Print it. Text it to him. Call AEW up and tell them.”
AEW Star “The Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer was recently a guest on Busted Open Radio, where, instead of Cody Rhodes accepting or commenting on Shaq’s challenge, would call out the NBA Hall of Famer himself and say that Cody Rhodes is the face of AEW and Shaq wants to be in the pro wrestling picture to face “The American Nightmare” Cody, but would remind Shaq that Cody Rhodes is currently out of action and that if Shaq doesn’t pay attention to him, he will kick Shaq in the back of his knee and take his face off his head.
