• Ken Shamrock Reveals Why He’s Returning To Wrestling

UFC Hall of Famer and Attitude Era Veteran Ken Shamrock is returning to wrestling and will work a program with Moose in Impact Wrestling.

During a recent interview with Wrestling Epicenter, Shamrock revealed why he’s returning to wrestling:

“I do [still love pro wrestling]. I made my commitment. I told people that I was coming back, and I’m not coming back for a short time. I’m coming back for the Heavyweight belt. Whether it is the NWA Heavyweight belt, the Impact Heavyweight belt, or the WWE Heavyweight belt, I told them I was coming back and I haven’t backed off from that.

I’m making a run at it. I’ve gone to BCW and won tag team gold there and had an opportunity at the World Title. I’ve had opportunities in Germany, I’ve had opportunities in South Africa, and back here in the States there is trembling about some things that I might do here.

So the statement I made about being back in pro wrestling is something that I am interested in chasing for quite some time until I can’t do it anymore. But I’m going to be doing that right alongside putting on great shows with VALOR Bare Knuckle.”

Shamrock was also asked about a possible WWE Hall of Fame induction and below is what he said:

“You know, there is a lot of speculation, and I have my own thoughts too. But all they are are thoughts and speculation because no one has come out and made a statement… They’ve been asked, but nobody’s responded. I’d like to think that someday, I’ll get in. Hopefully sooner than later. I think I did enough.

If you look at being a Hall of Famer, it is about changing the way people have to do things when you’re in the ring. You look at it now – you know, nobody ever tapped out. It was a verbal, ‘I give up!’ There were a handful of submission holds. Now, it is in every single match, people are doing different kinds of submissions with ankles, arms, and chokes, and different things.

In my time there, I changed the landscape of professional wrestling. To me, I should be the first one… If they are going to induct someone that is a cross-over from MMA to pro wrestling, I should be the first one that goes in.”
