John Cena Responds To Shaquille O’Neal Asking For AEW Debut Feedback

On the latest NBA on TNT post-game show, Shaquille O’Neal asked John Cena for feedback on his All Elite Wrestling (AEW) debut match.

John Cena was a guest on the show to promote his upcoming Wipeout series as well as the new Suicide Squad movie.

O’Neil took the opportunity to ask Cena if he had any feedback on his March 3 AEW debut, saying:

“John I’ve got a question for you. Not about the show, but about what you do, or what you used to do, being a wrestler. I had my first wrestling match a couple of weeks ago, did you see it? And I would like to get your criticism on what I should have done better.”

Cena seemingly didn’t see the match due to his other commitments, but was still intrigued, saying:

“Big Shaq, I’ve been sequestered in a bunker here in Vancouver as they’re really kinda keeping the lockdown to us. Now I heard you made your in-ring debut. I’m gonna answer your question with a question. How did you feel about it? When it was all over, how did you feel about your performance?”

They then showed some highlights of Shaq’s big moments during the match, notably paying homage to Brodie Lee with a powerbomb, and then getting bodied through two tables on the outside.

Shaq reiterated that he wanted to do a good job of representing wrestlers during their match and noted how much respect he has for them, including Cena.

Cena then added:

“You are one of that Mount Rushmore of sports entertainers. It’s a shame that you were born so large and so gifted on the basketball court because you could have been something in WWE. I still think you can be, I still think you can be. But you are Mount Rushmore of sports entertainers.”

Despite technically getting the win thanks to Jade Cargill pinning Red Velvet in the mixed tag on Dynamite, O’Neal was put in an ambulance after the table spot, and then, for some reason, disappeared from the ambulance.

It was reportedly Shaq’s idea to do that as a way to keep the door open for another match down the line.
