Attitude Era Star Open To WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

WWE Attitude Era

A former champion from the WWE Attitude Era has expressed an interest in getting a Hall of Fame induction one day.

When Ken Shamrock debuted in WWE in early 1997 he came in with a reputation as the “World’s Most Dangerous Man” coming from the UFC, which launched as a company earlier in the decade.

Shamrock’s debut in WWE came as a referee for the legendary Bret Hart-Steve Austin match at WrestleMania 13. After the match, Shamrock slammed Hart after the Hitman tried to attack Stone Cold.

Over the next two years, Shamrock had a lot of success in World Wrestling Entertainment as a wrestler in the popular Attitude Era. Shamrock would go on to win the Intercontinental Title and he was Tag Team Champion with the Big Boss Man as well. Shamrock also won the King of the Ring tournament in 1998.

While he never became WWE Champion, Shamrock was considered a main event level talent. His most notable feud was with The Rock, who was a star on the rise during their rivalry in the first half of 1998.

Does Ken Shamrock Want To Be A WWE Hall Of Famer?

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio earlier this week, Ken Shamrock was asked if he wanted to be in World Wrestling Entertainment’s Hall of Fame.

“People keep asking me ‘Do you think you deserve to be in?’ And of course, anybody great person, or anybody great who has the desire to be the best in the world at whatever they do, you always believe you belong. But it’s out of my control. If that happens, I’ll be happy. But I just don’t think that defines who I am.”

Ken Shamrock isn’t a WWE Hall of Famer yet, but he is in the UFC and TNA/Impact Hall of Fame.

After more than decades away from WWE, Ken Shamrock signed a Legends Deal with the company in late 2023.
