Dwight Howard would like to be involved in the WWE one day

Dwight Howard's NBA career has not been as successful as he may have hoped when he first burst onto the scene with the Orlando Magic.

Having led the Eastern Conference franchise to the finals in 2009, stints with the L.A. Lakers and Houston Rockets proved far less fruitful. He now finds himself with the Atlanta Hawks trying to rebuild a damaged reputation and make one last attempt at claiming a championship ring.

With the best years of his career coming to an end, Howard could be forgiven for having one eye on the future, and that could entail following in the footsteps - once again - of Shaquille O'Neal.

TMZ Sport caught up with Dwight Howard on the night of Conor McGregor's UFC 202 fight with Nate Diaz and spoke to him about the potential of featuring in the WWE.

The 30-year-old said 'of course' he would like to do it one day, adding: "I like to entertain people, yeah. I'd get out there, scream and yell, and suplex somebody, RKO out of nowhere."

WrestleMania 33 will take place at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida and it would be no surprise if the WWE reached out to Dwight and the Hawks to see if he was available to take part in the event.

It looks like Shaq, who has had a somewhat long-running feud with the Big Show, will be wrestling in the state where he started his NBA career. When asked who would win in the ring, Howard went with the professional wrestler, despite sharing the same agent as the Diesel.
