WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre says Shaquille O’Neal would’ve been a LEGENDARY wrestler if he chose WWE over the NBA, telling TMZ Sports he would’ve been like Andre The Giant with great mic skills!!
We talked to the current WWE Champion about the 7’1″, 325+ lb. Hall of Famer … and asked how Diesel would’ve fared in the squared circle.
“He’s a big big man! Very charismatic guy. If he didn’t get into basketball at such a high level, he definitely would have succeeded in the world of WWE.”
Now, not sayin’ Shaqmade the wrong decision. After all, he made $286 million in NBA contract money alone … and was one of the most dominant forces in league history.
But, pretty cool to hear a legit WWE Superstar say hoopin’ ain’t the only sport where Shaq could’ve been a legend.
“Just based on the size alone, he would have been a heck of a WWE superstar, and such a spectacle like an Andre the Giant,” McIntyre says, adding … “but add on that personality on top of it — box office!”
