Shaq was genuinely impressed. I would guess there's very few times in his life he came upon someone that he couldn't physically overpower.
When Chamberlian shook his hand
@Lionel messis burner Yes he does.
@Michael Smith he probably is actually. Shaq isn’t that strong
@Michael Smith Thor could overpower shaq easily
@ZonZorZerx he doesn’t have the most powerful punch
Devon is a very humble dude, wasn't even gonna say that he held both titles for left and right at the same time. Didn't even say that Canadian military dudes join the Arm Wrestling League because of him. The other guy had to inform us.
@Fallen Angel0810 what movie 8:07
@ExilixE exactly 💯
Ha! Just another cool fact(s) from a cool guy!.
Read my name👆
Basketball fans don't know that Shaq is a bit of a legend in the armwrestling community right now because of this day. To this day, Devon Larratt says that Shaq is the strongest freakiest non-armwrestler he's ever felt on the table. It's never too late to join our sport big guy!
@Aleix Ombi Ondredoms to your logic Robert Wadlow 8’11 man must’ve been stronger than everybody but dude was hardly able to move at his tallest
@CeeTee dude you’re literally comparing worlds strongest man to Shaq,until you show me Shaq lifting 501kg, squatting 900+ pounds, axle pressing 200kg+, then your words would have credibility. Shaq had amazing potential but he never achieved these lifts, not even close dude
He will get mopped
There should totally be a match now and then where one of the pros trains 2 newbs for 30-60 days and then they face... Khalid and Shaq might be a good matchup, at least before Khalid started training
Yeah big boy!
when you're 6'5 and still not the tallest person in the room
@Aaron Reay not prime shaq
@ineffable nefarious i have shaq benching more because of this ilaward.info/the/wyd-w/xJOKtql-0GW9iXI he only does 253 one rep
Larratt said that Shaq was the strongest non-armwrestler he ever felt. That there is a huge compliment.
He was being nice. I'm pretty sure Hafthor could've beaten Shaq, probably without too much trouble.
I mean people forget what a monster shaq is - he threw around everyone in the nba - the freaking nba. Dude could have probly been the best in the world at like half the strength sports if he wanted
@JackgarPrime i still think hafthor would ABSOLUTELY destroy shaq in a arm wrestle, devon just forgot about thor because it was so long ago and when thor was in his prime
Considering this was after he arm wrestled thor it makes it even more impressive
It’s a sportsmanship thing. Shaq could have gotten a few more rings, but it’s team. Larrat’s team is his family. Shaq too, but Larratt goes to the table all by himself
At like 1:17 Devon realizes how absolutely enormous Shaq is and just stares in awe for like 5 seconds
That's the best part of the video by far haha
@Jango SAV & DJ Dubsak Sized him up by only looking at his eyes & being like 10 feet away?
@Jango SAV & DJ Dubsak yup
Shaq is like a whole different human species. Makes really big dudes look tiny.
@Lionel messis burner that's debatable. Shack is like 5 or 6 inches taller, and HB has lost like over a hundred pounds.
Halfthor would make shaq look small
@اٌسُتْغَفّرُ اللـہ im 6'2 at 15
Yao Ming would make even Shaq look small.
@Vodkainum Yao Ming looked like he has some acromegaly, while shaq doesn't have any disorder, just very tall/big
Devon is such a humble dude. When Chuck said you couldn’t be as strong on both hands he didn’t brag at all and the other guy had to tell them his was the champion of both. What a man
Even when he said this, Devon didn't really acknowledge it with a "yeah," or "that's true." He just continued talking to Chuck. Respect.
6:49 "Oh, he's not moving!" - This was hilarious. You can tell Shaq is used to being able to dominate most men physically, so for him to encounter that brick wall called Devon must've been humbling!
When you realize this is the most viewed video on the NBA on TNT channel. Thanks for helping out the arm wrestling world Ernie Chuck Kenny and Shaq. I never would have found out about Devon and fell down the arm wresting rabbit hole without this video!
ha at end when Devon thought Shaq was gonna use 2 hands he suddenly changed posture and got serious for a sec before realizing Shaq was joking.
@Valitsemlla Luo kanava hyväksy laitela where did he say that ? source
@Chris M Total speculation but I'm guessing that using 2 hands actually more than doubles the power because of the fact that you don't have to use a fulcrum. Your elbow isn't pinned to a point anymore so you can tile sideways and actually incorporate some of your leg muscles.
@Shoaib Haq I wouldnt be so sure. Using both hands is not the doubling of power you think it to be. To put both hands up there, it means you lose a TON of leverage from not holding the steel peg. Plus you also have to shift your feet, again losing fulcrum advantages from a practiced stance. I get bet you don't even get a 40% increase. And 150% of Shaqs arm wrestling ability, I would wager would not beat Devon.
Devon freakinbg said ''Oh yeah'' like the Kool-Aid guy when Shaq uses his second hand. I legit think Shaq stopped because he wasn't sure he could win even with two hands. Devon is the GOAT.
Devon would have still won.
Love how Devon could yield that he is the first to be champ, and chose to talk about how it’s hard and all. Great that his buddy was there to praise him a little bit, man is too humble
Devin has said Shaq is the strongest non-armwrestler he has ever felt. That's a massive compliment. Devin just proved he is next level.
I mean halfthor is like 10x stronger than him
Shaq's left hand is his naughty hand
@AIS tigerbelly fan :o
im right handed and my left is stronger at bicep curls and arm wrestling its weird
You gotta make it weird
I love watching this video! The moment when shaq says "oh he ain't movin" so good. I also noticed the strategy in the leg placement of Devon using his shoulders and hips. This combined with his strong grip and good physic makes him an unbeatable opponent!!
He’s a good ambassador for the sport, humble and informative
I saw something very rare in today's times, a room full of extremely competitive people that were really loosing and winning but were just having fun , there smiles never left there faces . I'm not a huge fan of sports without engines but I would have loved to have been in that room with those guys, 👍
True that- great vibes
Devon Larrat and his arm wrestling passion does that to people. He’s a great ambassador for the sport.
Shaq is a great athlete; remember that show where he competed against Phelps and De La Hoya? In his prime, and with a little training, he could have been one of the best arm wrestlers ever.
Best sports show/cast on TV hands down. Great stuff guys, thanks!
Devon is the ultimate ambassador for his sport. Legend.
Gotta come back to this one every few months. Such a classic. Shaq actually could be legit, too! But when he gets to Devon and Devon doesn't even move... LOL! That dude is on such another level.
Love how they are just completely captivated in the moment it's like watching kids at a toy store ...puts a humbling smile on my dial lol😊
" Oh, he's not moving; he's not moving at all." That part had me dead 🤣
He’s never experienced that in his life 😂
@DS_X1 rekking noobs = ggezclap
“He ain’t moving either”🤣🤣🤣
@LtUnreal rekt the n00bs B)
Love Shaq, he has the best sense of humor
Meh, it's ok
Love Devon, he’s amazing ! Seems like such a great guy too ! Fun stuff !
This was awesome! Definitely had me laughing! Shaq was very impressive!!
That's why I Love this Team and this show they get involved in all kinds of sports and things!! Great stuff!! Arm-wrestling!!
I love how genuinely interested they all are in Arm Wrestling.
Every man on earth is interested in arm wrestling
It’s actually cool, go watch a championship fight, it’s legit
Every man loves arm wrestling.
Because it’s interesting?
3 of my favorite dudes in this video. Shaq, the round mound of rebound, and Devon "No Limits" Larratt. This is awesome.
Shaq is the most impressive one here. No training at all, still beats one professional and impresses the other. True natural strength.
@chris h he probably was weak in his left hand
@chris h shaq was already tired from arm wrestling 3 times
Did u watch it till the end? He gave the win to Shaq.
Shaq is freaking awesome!!! That dude is hilarious. He is this massive intimidating looking guy but he's like a gentle giant most of the time.
Love inside nba crew!! Should keep them around all year 365 days a year and I'd watch!!
This man armwrestled The Mountain and was shocked at Shaq's strength. Shaq was such a freak in his prime that even 15 years after he retired he's still a monster.
15 years ago?😂what are you 9?
Jesus loves you all❤️, allow him into your hearts...
@☆bonk☆ True enough. Even for a big man, Shaq was hella strong. It was both his blessing and curse as a player. He started focusing too much on being bulky and strong and it starting costing him his quickness and agility. It's partly why he started having foot and back problems too. Too much weight.
strength is one of those things that you generally get to keep as you age. there are a good number of elite arm wrestlers well into their 40s, 50s, and even 60s. it's often injury and/or motivation that makes arm wrestlers retire. i'm guessing shaq hasn't lost much of his natural strength since his NBA days. a naturally big man is gonna have naturally big muscles and tendons. that carries over to the table.
@Zachary Scott yea, you're on the right track there. The insane degree to which it is actually specialized is part of what draws me to it. Someone seemingly so much smaller can literally just do whatever they want in that space. It's crazy. Check out Devon Larrat VS the mountain on here. I'm pretty sure he's way bigger than Shaq, much younger, and he competes in strongman. He couldn't do anything with both hands, either. It's a VERY specific strength. You can even watch videos of Devon lifting weights with Eddie Hall, a world record holding strongman, and he can't lift even a quarter of the weights in any lift they do, but on the table Devon can play around with him like a dad does his 9 year old son... It's crazy.
Chuck: *"Quit while you're down, Shaq."* Brilliant quip and still the best sports show on TV.
Nah, can't stand Shaq and Round Mound for sports commentary. Never watch them.
*Devon Larratt:* "He's the strongest non-armwrestler that I've ever felt ... Yeah, Shaq's the strongest."
@Le Hoang the guy he fought in the video "Hafthor" is much heavier than Shaq but Devon still says 50 year old Shaq is stronger than him, that just shows how strong Shaq is
@Le Hoang Bol Bol is taller than Shaq and I bet he loses to these guys in arm wrestling 😂
@kb nevermind man, just comment around.
@Le Hoang ok and? That doesnt change anything
@Le Hoang haha i know! He's literally a giant, why do people find it surprising
Love this. Shaq and Devon are both legends
Shaq is such a good sport! Got to love him.
the shortest guy in that room is probably taller than my entire family combined
People taking this comment literally LOL 🤣
Are you a cat family?
i am 6'2.6" tallest in my family
Love to see this ! Thank You 🙏 I knew Shaq was strong!! C’Mon Man!!!
Do more of this! Amazing 👍🏼
The funny thing is there is a chance Larratt could have held on to both of Shaqs hands at the end, Devon was definitely quickly adjusting to it to show off what he can actually do.
😂 i love this.. Shaq's face when he realized the champ ain't movin...
Probably one of the very few times in his life feeling strength and power comparable to his own. a little taste of his own medicine hehe.
Impressed by Shaq if Devon says you are strong you are strong.
Lol.laughing at how Shaq getting Ernie to smack him on his head..🤣🤣🤣🤣
@Gabriel Leung Wilt Chamberlain is the most gifted athlete in the history of the NBA not Shaq
@Retna1x devon didn't have to try for thor...
@fIĆO Anušić well clearly Devon was most likely lying as it’s on shaqs show because Shaq didn’t move Devon a inch when he was smiling, and devon had to actually try a little for thor
@DANG JOS thor deadlifted 1104 he’s the strongest dead lifter rn cuz Eddie hall quit
Chuck and Shaq are like twins. I just love these two. The show won't be fun without them. EJ did a great job bringing Chuck and Shaq onto the show.
What an awesome clip-Shaq and Devon 2 of the best ever!!!
Shaq is the best and one of the most funniest guys in the world. I m proud see him playing in the nba🤟🏻
Shaq was sizing them up every second lol. That competitive nature never goes away.
This format to present arm wrestling to the wider public is excellent. Great potential for celebrity collabs
Love seeing everybody havin such a great time .
Aaaah, the beauty of not needing to be stronger than someone, and remain confident in his inwards. Priceless. I'd wish more competitors were able to see that, and, then, being capables to release their power in its whole extent, because the need of prove steal our effectivity to a certain percentage.
Shaq went at all 4 of them without resting! Awesome!
lol when he said "oh, hes not moving" that moment Shaq realizes smaller people can beat him in strength
@rosavel Devon is older than Shaquans
@Akiman Devon is strong generally but yeah he wins in arm wrestling because of his technique, he beat Hafthor in arm wrestling but lost to him at boxing
People in general
@Akiman Devon is a black belt is some martial art i forgot.
@rosavel believe it or not, i am willing to bet he is actually stronger in armwrestling than when he was younger. When you get older your tendons in your fingers and elbows generally start getting large, hence why older people have thicker fingers. Arm wrestling strength is very specific, and those specific muscles that are used actually keep developing even as you age in your 40-50s
This is so entertaining! I have watched this many times!
I'm honestly glad I discovered professional arm wrestling, so fun
Anything with Shaq in it is entertaining. Thanks Shaq for donating money towards the reward for finding the person that shot the police officer 💪🏾
Devon is a solid dude...whatever you choose to do and you're the best at it, mad respect!!
Watching Shaq and Chuck fool around is sooo funny like a big brother lil brother always something good to see
This segment reminds me of the 3 point world record holder and how differently it went lol. This guys are real humble.
Can you imagine what Shaq’s participation in this sport would do to help promote it 🤩
Que genios son jajajaja son un vicio hace una semana que no paro de ver sus videos uno tras otro ja
Devon is so humble ! i love how the other arm wrestling guy there mentioned how Devon held left and right arm titles at the same time. legend
he cued the guy to say that lol
open weight as well, is what makes it so fking crazy
@Black Bird Devon would be one of the first to tell you, that head games are a major part of arm wrestling, Devon is so good at locking up and making it look like he's not even trying and when his opponent looks up sees him just smiling they lose heart even for a second and that when Devon strikes.
@Black Bird They're trying to popularize their sport, man. Devon is playing the heel, and he's a great hypeman. I'm not saying they don't get worked up, but they are trying to make it a show too. Check out some of his videos where he's putting on exhibitions with regular people, or going against a woman. Very few of the top guys have actual ego. Keep in mind too, the guy has probably killed an unknown number of people. lol.
Humble ! 😂😂😂 You should watch his arm wrestling clips. He is a much better trash talker than Conor McGregor could ever hope to be.
Gotta love this show ❤
wow I can't believe how well shaq held up against devon. I'd love to see a proper rematch.
Shaq is incredibly strong with the correct training he could be unstoppable
My favorite part of this is still at 6:00 when EJ literally rides on top of Shaq 🤣
Biggest Sus moment ever
"oh he's not movin", that sounded like genuine shock from shaq haha
Shaq makes tall people look short. He just towers over everyone.
@IcyboyG there is always a bigger fish so .... Be happy how you are
Except Yao Minh
Entertainment at its best 💪🏼🤣
Laratt is a F’ing beast. Been watching these matches the past few weeks and he’s unbeatable.
Loved how the Grippler was trying to let the guys know that they were hanging with arm wrestling greatness in Devon.
You gotta love Shaq's confidence!
I stopped by to watch a few seconds of this and stayed riveted to the end. Quality content
"I am not as easy as him" - i felt that
Those two pro arm wrestler seem like very two good dudes👍💯🔥
Ernie slapping Shaq on the head is hilarious 😂😂😂
Dude every time you see Shaq next to other people, even dudes who most men would be shorter than, you’re reminded of just how huge of a guy he is. Guarding him must have been an absolute nightmare.
I still get goose bumps seeing larratt on tnt. Shaq is the man Barkley is the man ej the man Kenny is the man the entire cast just great perfect. The fact they had these guys on before anyone knows who they are just amazing.
When Shaq said he aint moving my shoulder flinched 🤣 That seems like a lot of strength, leverage and weight lol
Any time I see Shaq around big people that’s when it really hits home how much of a beast Shaq is. Then there’s that pic of him next to Yao Ming………
When Shaq used two hands to try and beat Larratt, he was using the same advice Larratt whispered to him earlier lol
