NBA’s Dwight Howard hints at possible future in WWE
Shaquille O’Neal may not be the only basketball big man who wants to test his mettle in WWE.
Dwight Howard, who now plays for the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks, recently hinted to TMZ Sports that he might be receptive to the idea of following Shaq into the squared circle. He did not hesitate to respond in a video interview about whether he wants to step into a WWE ring.
“Of course,” Howard said to TMZ. “I like to entertain people. I’ll get down there and scream and yell and suplex somebody, RKO outta nowhere.”
The eight-time NBA All-Star also offered a prediction regarding a hypothetical showdown between Big Show and O’Neal, who officially faced off for the first time during the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32. He ultimately decided that the past experience and success would give The World’s Largest Athlete the edge in a showdown with Shaq.
Howard recently signed a three-year contract to play with the Hawks following previous stops with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic.
