Former UFC & WWF Star Ken Shamrock Not Being Inducted Into The WWE Hall of Fame Anytime Soon

Ken Shamrock - WWE Hall of Fame

During a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked if former UFC & WWF star “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock would ever get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Meltzer noted that Shamrock has contacted WWE several times for a Hall of Fame induction and using him again in the company, but WWE just isn’t interested in him.

Below is what Meltzer said:

“Nope. As far as contact, I mean Ken has tried to get in with them several times and they aren’t interested, for whatever reason.”

Meltzer was asked the same question a couple of years back and he noted how he doesn’t expect him to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame because the company doesn’t really view Shamrock as one of their legends.

Below are Ken Shamrock’s accomplishments in WWF & TNA (since WWE treats its Hall of Fame as a Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame):

– NWA World Heavyweight Champion (in TNA)

– WWF Intercontinental Champion

– WWF Tag Team Champion

– King of the Ring 1998 Winner

Below are Shamrock’s accomplishments in UFC:

– UFC Superfight Championship (1 time, first)

– Two successful Title defenses

– Only fighter to ever defend the UFC Superfight Championship

– Longest Fight in UFC History (at UFC 5 – 36 minutes)

– UFC Hall of Fame

– UFC Viewer’s Choice Award

– Ultimate Ultimate 1996 Tournament Semifinalist

– UFC 1 Tournament Semifinalist

– UFC 3 Tournament Finalist

– First fighter to defend a UFC Title belt

– First inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame (with Royce Gracie)

Shamrock’s MMA record as of this writing is 28-17-2. His last fight was on February 19, 2016 at Bellator 149, where he lost to Royce Gracie in the first round via TKO in a Light Heavyweight bout.
