During Jade Cargill’s debut, Shaquille O’Neal was mentioned and it seems the company is teasing him making an appearance eventually.
Some fans have been wondering whether AEW really needs someone like O’Neal. The Young Bucks recently spoke to Wrestle Zone, where they explained the reason why they want him in All Elite Wrestling.
They care about the star power in a name and as O’Neal is a huge name in NBA, fans could be checking out AEW just to see what O’Neal will do.
“I’m all for it because we need to try to get more eyeballs on our product and that’s definitely a way to get the fans that probably wouldn’t watch AEW Dynamite. He’s a celebrity, let’s face it, and he’s got a lot of fans so he’s probably gonna bring a lot of new eyeballs to whatever he does.”
