Several fans on Twitter noticed that Shaq paid tribute to late pro wrestler Brodie Lee on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite: The Crossroads.
Before hitting a powerbomb on Cody Rhodes, Shaq did the signature Brodie Lee taunt and proceeded to hoist Cody in the air.
As noted, Shaq has been praised a lot for not only holding his own in his AEW in-ring debut but for going through two tables and taking several other bumps including a scoop slam.
See below for some of the reactions:
