NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone loves wrestling, so he decided to make an appearance on WWE SmackDown on Tuesday night.
Malone made his way into the ring after the final match of the night, in order to celebrate with Bobby Roode after his victory, according to TMZ. Roode wrestled in a dark match along with AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura as they defeated Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Jinder Mahal.
Malone ended up toasting with Roode, and then they both did his “glorious” pose.

Malone also ended up doing an interview backstage after his appearance and hinted that he could end up making another appearance soon.
“Hopefully, yes. There’s a couple guys I would like like to mess around with a little bit, I guess,” says Malone in a WWE YouTube video.
While Malone seems to love wrestling, it’s a shame, he never tried to start a career as a pro wrestler after his NBA career.
The 54-year-old Malone has been retired from basketball since 2005. Then in 2007, he was hired by Louisiana Tech University as their new director of basketball promotion and assistant strength and conditioning coach. He played his college ball at Louisiana Tech and also donated $350,000 to the university athletic department at the time.
Then in 2013, Malone moved on and was hired by the Jazz in order to coach their big men.
Malone is also an entrepreneur that owns a Teriyaki Grill, Eskimoe’s Ice Cream, and an Arby’s in Ruston, Louisiana. He also owns two car dealerships in Utah. One is a Toyota dealership and the other is a Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealer. He’s also been a part owner of a couple of Honda dealerships but sold off his shares.
Would you want to see him get back in the ring to wrestle, the way he did in 1998?
