It wasn't the first time O'Neal dabbled in the sports entertainment business.

A lifelong wrestling fan, he made several appearances for the defunct-World Championship Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, and WWE. He even served as guest host for Monday Night Raw in July 2009.

O'Neal made his in-ring debut in April 2016 when he made a surprise appearance at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas.

He entered the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, eliminating Damien Sandow before he and fellow giant Big Show had a confrontation that led to the other wrestlers pushing them over the top rope.
