Shakeel O’Neill had a menacing force in the wrestling ring on Wednesday night – until Cody Rhodes put him through two tables on the outside and froze them.
O’Neill was taking time to wrestle on TNT’s “AEW Dynamite” between NBA spots. He, Rhodes, Jade Cargill and Red Velvet played a mixed mixed team match to open the program.

With men and women alternating as legal wrestlers in the ring, Shake – who is no stranger to the squire circle – slams powerbombed Rhodes at one point in the match and the wrestlers out before him.
Shortly after Powerbomb, Rhodes tagged in Velvet, meaning O’Neill was to leave for Kargil. Later, Velvet was in danger of being pinned. Rhodes leaped and intervened. While he was in the area, he decided to take on 7-1 O’Neill. Both men were soon landing hard on the table.
This slam was very vicious, with Jim Ross in his “Good God Almighty!”
Kargil ended up pinning Velvet anyway, making Sheikh the winner. But the win came at a cost as TNT cameras showed O’Neill flat between the ruins of the table.
We’re guessing Thursday will make him suspicious for “NBA on TNT”.
