O'Neal had a connection with professional wrestling for over 20 years. He was part of the entourage of Hulk Hogan in July 1994 when he captured the WCW World Heavyweight Championhip from Ric Flair in Orlando. O'Neal has appeared in World Wrestling Entertainment on several episodes of Monday Night Raw for over a decade.
