Shaq will address the AEW fans in a live interview with the voice of TNT, Tony Schiavone.

Shaquille O’Neal will possibly kickstart a feud with Cody Rhodes

Shaq’s entry into the AEW Universe happened in the most bizzare way possible. The NBA Hall of Famer was mentioned in a segment involving former TNT Champion, Cody Rhodes, and the newcomer, Jade Cargill.

While Cody was in the ring to announce his way forward after dropping the TNT Championship, Cargill interrupted him. After an impressive first promo, she dropped the bombshell, announcing that “Shaq” was on his way to the company.

The announcement came without context, and many fans soon forgot about it. Cody himself got into a feud with Team Taz and the AEW Universe dismissed it as an aberration.

After Sting’s massive debut last week, it seemed like things were headed in a completely different direction for the Nightmare Family.

However, the announcement of Shaq’s appearance has sweetened the pot further.

Sting, Shaq, Cody Rhodes, Darby Allin – Where is AEW added?

AEW has added too many big names in an entangling set of narratives. Team Taz, the Nightmare Family, and Darby Allin are currently embroiled in a very heated feud.

The addition of mainstream names like Sting and Shaq means that AEW has some very big plans for this storyline. While Sting might support Cody and his family, Shaq might bolster the ranks of Team Taz.

Ultimately, these two groups can possibly collide in AEW’s own rendition of the legendary War Games : Blood and Guts. The paper view was originally scheduled for March 2020 but was suspended indefinitely due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Cody was also a crucial part of the originally scheduled match. He was set to team up with Kenny Omega, Adam Page and the Young Bucks to take on the Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz).

Regardless of the direction AEW takes with this storyline, it has successfully established itself as must-see television.
