On the red carpet of this year’s ESPY awards, Shaquille O’Neal took the wrestling world by storm by accepting a showdown against Big Show at WrestleMania. However, it looks like Shaq might not be the only basketball star to make the crossover into the ring.
With the recent confirmation of Shaquille O’Neal and Big Show’s WrestleMania 33 match, TMZ Sports decided to see if this crossover interest exists elsewhere. TMZ caught up with Dwight Howard, who now plays for the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks, and asked if he’d ever step foot in the ring.
‘Of course,’ Dwight Howard responded. ‘I like to entertain people. I’ll get down there and scream and yell and suplex somebody, RKO outta nowhere.’ While there’s been recent crossover with the WWE and UFC, the NBA is certainly less expected.
