• Old School WWF Attitude Era Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School UFC/MMA & WWF Attitude Era Legend “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock turns 56 today.
Shamrock became the first ever UFC World Heavyweight Champion (back then named “Ultimate Fighting Superfight Championship”) in 1995 and later joined the World Wrestling Federation in February 1997.
During his WWF career, Ken won the Intercontinental Championship and the World Tag Team Championship, as well as the 1998 King of the Ring tournament.
In 2002, he had a brief stint in Total Nonstop Action, where he became the NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
Later this year, he’ll be getting inducted into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame. Him getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame is obviously just a matter of “when” and not “if”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEN SHAMROCK!
• Jeff Hardy Expected To Return Soon, Matt Hardy’s WWE Contract Expiry Date
According to PWInsider, former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy is scheduled to be at the WWE Performance Center next week in Orlando to monitor his progress.
Jeff suffered a knee injury after WrestleMania 35 and has been out of action since then.
He was expected to be out of action for 6-9 months and it looks like his in-ring return date is near (although WWE could end up saving his return for the post-WrestleMania 36 episode of RAW/SmackDown).
While Jeff will be staying in WWE, his brother Matt Hardy might not be with WWE after this month.
Matt Hardy’s WWE contract expires on March 1. He has been in talks with WWE officials about a new contract, but they haven’t reached a deal yet.
Jeff’s WWE contract was also scheduled to expire on March 1, but more time has been added to his contract because of the time he missed due to his injury.
