NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal made his AEW ring debut Wednesday night, but he was not conscious when he and Jad Cargill defeated Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet in Dynamite: The Crossroads.
Shaq, 48, dominated Rhodes in the first half of the match, but “The American Nightmare” got revenge with a running crossbody. The move sent both men out of the ring and crashed into (and smashed) two tables.
Cargill eventually won the mixed tag battle for the two powerhouses with a Glam Slam. Meanwhile, O’Neal was still knocked out of the rubble with an AEW doctor checking him out.
