As seen during last week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, Cody Rhodes put Shaquille O’Neal through two tables and the big man was then put into an ambulance. When Tony Schiavone opened the door to check on Shaq, he was gone.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was Shaq’s idea for the disappearance angle. According to sources, he was excited to be there and wants to come back to work more matches. The NBA legend thought disappearing would show that he was knocked down but not out. Obviously, there was no way for him to sell the angle as he had to be part of the TV panel for the NBA All-Star game.
