The four time NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers center Shaquille O’Neal, 37, who is 7-foot-1 and weighs 325 pounds will challenge world class champion athletes in their own sports in a quest to reveal his excellence as an all around athlete in the new series Shaq Vs. As the season progresses Shaq will confront other athletes in their sports, including: Oscar de la Hoya in boxing, Michael Phelps in swimming, Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor in volleyball, Albert Pujols in baseball and Serena Williams in tennis.

In the debut episode, he takes on the two time Super Bowl winner and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who is six-foot-five, weighs 240 pounds and is 25 years old. The Shaq vs Ben Roethlisberger video below reveals a scrimmage where Shaq had to drive his team and score from the 20 and the Steelers quarterback had to score from the 40.

The episode was shot in Pittsburgh at Ambridge Area High School in July 2009, according to Pittsburgh Channel 4 (ABC WTAE). Additionally, the episode includes some scenes shot at Roethlisberger’ house as he entertains his house guest, Shaq and soon-to-be contender.

In additional scenes, Shaq is seen doing some football drills for NFL scout Mike Mayock. The outcome? The Steeler proves the better at his own sport with a 21-14 victory. And next week, Shaq is off on another quest with champions of another sport: beach volleyball champs Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh which will air next Tuesday.

    Love him or hate him there is no one like Shaq. I work on “Shaq Vs” and have enjoyed every chance I get to be around him…he’s just so darn funny. The man is comedy in a 7 ft frame.
    His next show on Tuesday night features him on the beach playing against Olympic gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh. He’ll also step onto the court with Serena Williams to help her train for the US Open. You have to see the big surprise at the end of the episode. Let’s just say we find a new color that Shaq looks good in.

    Be sure to catch the show when Albert Pujols, Michael Phelps and Oscar De La Hoya step up to face the challenge of his Shaqness.
    Tune in Tuesday night at 8pm ET & PT on ABC. Can you dig it?
