WWE has proposed many storylines to Superstars that were off the wall, and they went ahead with those plans. Ken Shamrock had to put his foot down when WWE proposed an incest angle for him.
Ken Shamrock recently spoke to ‘Scheduled for Two Falls’ podcast when a controversial angle came up. Alicia Webb, who was known on-screen as “Ryan Shamrock,” was brought into WWE as Shamrock’s kayfabe sister. Ryan also happens to be the name of Shamrock’s real-life son so the name was off-putting, to say the least.
Vince McMahon proposed an incest angle with Ken and Ryan Shamrock. That didn’t happen, but the fact that his son is also named Ryan certainly didn’t help matters.
“Here is this beautiful young lady who’s interested in me and just felt comfortable and next thing you know, we’re in a relationship and she’s my sister supposedly in this wrestling thing, and that was the actual next storyline that they wanted me to do was they wanted me to have this incest with my sister. That’s why I was running around trying to save her and all these other things and I was like, ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Man, wants to have sex with his own sister?’ And by the way, my son’s name is Ryan. My legitimate son’s name is Ryan and they made her Ryan and I’m like, people are gonna go, ‘Isn’t that his kid?’ Way too close to home, and I was like, ‘No. I’m not doing that.’”
Vince McMahon also once proposed an incest storyline with his own daughter Stephanie McMahon while she was pregnant. That didn’t happen either, but maybe one day Vince McMahon will be able to pull off an incestuous angle without someone stopping the storyline in its tracks.
