Cho ult and Tahm shield

So I just played a game as a cho and the tahm was able to survive my ult when he activated his shield even tho he had the indicator on him and his health was low enough beforehand to die. I don't understand how this is possible because of the fact that Cho ulti is TRUE damage which shouldn't be negated by anything except invulnerability right?
