Shaq appears as guest host on WWE Monday Night Raw
He began the show in a square-off with Chris Jericho and The Big Show. Shaq did a backstage segment with Hornswoggle, WWE's resident leprachaun, where The Diesel claimed he and 'Swoggle went to high school together.
Later in the show, WWE's creative team ripped off ESPN's commercial when The Big Aristotle was seen in the back playing a game of Scrabble with Santino Marella, with Marella asking Shaq how he got so many Q's.
To end the show, Shaq was the "special guest enforcer" in a tag team match pitting Chris Jericho and The Big Show against Cryme Tyme. O'Neal was called out at the end of the match by Big Show and got in the ring, nose to nose with "The World's Largest Athlete." Show pushed Shaq, Shaq pushed back, Show slapped a choke on O'Neal, and then Shaq returned the favor. They continued to "choke" each other until Cryme Tyme broke it up and then Shaq gave Big Show a running chest bump.
As you would assume, Shaq was also tweeting throughout the night. One of his more interesting and, um, curious tweets was this one at about 10pm: "wasn't lookin, but randy orton has da sexiest white man butt ive seen next 2 steve nash"
