“Oh, I’m winning,” O’Neal told the outlet. “Guaranteed.” (RELATED: Trump To Award Wrestling Champion Dan Gable Presidential Medal Of Freedom)
“I’m the type, I can never back down from a challenge,” O’Neal told the Associated Press. “I’m not a professional wrestler, but I’ve been in a match before. I’ve got a lot of moves in my arsenal. When you step inside somebody’s world, you have to stick to what you’re masterful at. I’m not acrobatic. I’m not going to be jumping off the ropes. I’m coming with the power game. When I get hands on him, I’m going to display this power.”
“I’m the type that if I have a look and see you do it, I got it,” O’Neal reportedly added.
I can’t imagine Shaq being that good at wrestling, but maybe he’ll prove me wrong. He’s 7’1″ and that’s a lot of body to move around. However, he has wrestled in the past and could easily do well in this fight.
