WWE History includes a lot of names that never quite achieved the level of greatness that most think they deserve. Ken Shamrock often ranks on top of those lists, and there are many reasons for this. He was a legitimately dangerous man, so his co-workers never tested him on that end.

Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock recently sat down with The Charlotte Observer to discuss his time in professional wrestling and his thoughts on the current state of the industry. During the interview, Shamrock addressed a rumor that had circulated for years about an incident in which he was challenged to a “shoot fight” by another wrestler while working for WWE.

“I’ve heard that rumor too. But the truth is, nobody ever tried to get into a shoot fight with me in WWE. I was always a professional and treated my opponents with respect, and I expect the same in return. If anyone had tried to step out of line like that, they would have quickly learned that I don’t play games when it comes to real fighting.”

Shamrock, who is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of mixed martial arts and is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, has always been known for his tough and no-nonsense approach to competition. It’s no surprise that he would have put a stop to any attempts at unprofessional behavior in the WWE locker room.


The wrestler-turned-actor also shared his thoughts on the current state of WWE, praising the company for its commitment to putting on high-quality entertainment for fans.

“WWE has always been about putting on the best show possible for the fans, and I think they do a great job of that,” he said. “I’m proud to have been a part of the company’s history and I’m excited to see what the future holds.”

In the end, Shamrock’s message was clear: respect and professionalism are the keys to success in any industry, and WWE is no exception.
