Reason For Shaq Hosting RAW, Tie-In With Rape Controversy

Matt Boone

Shaquille O'NealNBA legend and next week’s WWE RAW celebrity guest-host Shaquille O’Neal has a new reality television program debuting on the ABC Network on August 18th.

Filming for the show, which features Shaq challenging other sports stars to their respective sports, starts this Wednesday in Pitrtsburgh, PA with NFL Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That is, if the story that came out today where Roethlisberger was accused of rape don’t conflict with that taping.

This reality show is apparently what Shaq is coming to RAW to promote next week.
