Could've been worse. It could've been a Peter Griffin moment.

Ken Shamrock was recently on Ring Rust Radio. Here are the highlights…

On a Return to WWE and How Winning the World Title Would Cement His Legacy: "Oh, definitely. I've tried to reach out, but I've been hitting some walls. I'm not sure if my messages are getting through or not. In my career, if you follow my career and watched everything that I've ever done from the time I was in high school to where I'm at now, I've always been able to reach the pinnacle. In football, I was able to win championships and go to bowl games in college, be an All-American linebacker and there were a lot of things I was able to accomplish. In my professional career, every time I jumped into an organization, I always reached the top and the title. I know with NWA with Jeff Jarrett, TNA, I was their first heavyweight champion, so I was able to reach that pinnacle. With Pancrase, I was their first champion and was also able to bring it to the U.S. using my character. I also reached the level in the UFC as a heavyweight champion, one of the first of all time, also rookie of the year, fighter of the year. I got into pro wrestling, I've got tag team champion, Intercontinental champion, King of the Ring. There were several times where I wished I had got that opportunity, and probably should have had that opportunity, to at least challenge for the Heavyweight Championship belt. I never got that opportunity, and I'm not sure why, but it is what it is. I will keep fighting to try and get that opportunity and close this thing up to be probably one of the only persons in sports history to go into several different organizations and become world champion in every one of them."

On Brock Lesnar and the Transition from Wrestling to MMA: "People go, ‘What about Brock Lesnar?' Brock Lesnar was not a true MMA fighter. Brock Lesnar was basically eye candy for MMA. He came in there, he was big, he was strong, he won a few matches, he captured the title and then he was out. Not much of a career. He is a true pro wrestler and amateur wrestler, so I think it's a lot easier making the transition from being an amateur wrestler and pro wrestler into MMA than it is being an MMA fighter into pro wrestling."

On Vince McMahon vs. Dana White: "That would be awesome. The only thing is that this is what I know about Dana [White], and you can ask anyone, Dana always talks and talks and talks, but I've never seen him do anything. I saw Vince talk, talk and talk, and he has done something, he has gotten into the ring, he has participated with the fighters and the wrestlers. I have not seen Dana White do that. I've seen him call out Tito [Ortiz] like they were gonna fight, and it never happened. I've never seen Dana interact with his business the way that Vince has. Vince has stepped in the ring against guys he's pissed off. Hey, you gotta give him credit for that. He stepped into the lion's den, per say. He did step into the Lion's Den one time!"


Can't see WWE being interested in a guy in his mid-late fourties who hardly exactly set WWE on fire when he was a part of the roster.
Shamrock was a solid worker and his MMA gimmick was decent but he lacked charisma and mic-skills.
He last appeared during the Attitude Era so think its safe to say the WWE ship has sailed for him, they might use him for one-off appearances, but full-time - no chance.

His best option would be to reach out to TNA about a return, they might be interested in putting together a match between Shamrock and Kurt Angle.

Wasnt Shamrock vs Angle supposed to happen at WM 18? I heard a rumor way back then that Shamrock was coming back to wwe in 2002 (like so many wrestlers did) and he was going to feud with Angle.
 
Id be down with that match.
TNA Would Be Nothing Without #TeamDixie

Quote Former WWE Superstar and UFC Hall Of Famer Ken Shamrock recently spoke with The Delz Show while at the WrestleCade events in North Carolina over the weekend. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On why he wants to return to WWE: "In the WWF, or the WWE as they call it now, the one thing that I was not able to capture was that Heavyweight belt. I'm telling you, I want a chance to be able to go after that belt but only if Brock Lesnar has it, or The Rock has it or Kurt Angle has it."

On specific ideas he has for matches against some of WWE's current Superstars: "I want the ankle match with Kurt Angle... or I want Brock to see who is the best from MMA and pro wrestling. Of course, it would be me. And The Rock, because he ran away from me after I grabbed the Intercontinental Championship from him [Shamrock won his only Intercontinental title in a tournament after the title was vacated]. Then he went up to get the [WWE Championship] belt and I was supposed to go after that, and he ran away!"

Check out the complete Ken Shamrock interview at YouTube.com.

 
I think E would have zero interest in him ever being brought back to wrestle for them at his age and with his drugs past.
 
He could be put in the HOF one day as I think he deserves that more than a lot that's in.
 
He wouldn't be the top pick for the year, but his wrestling days weren't bad.

he'll definitely be in the HoF, first big name that had cross promotion appeal and was able to show he was a legit fighter.

I don't want to see him back in the ring though. none of those matches have any appeal to me. I don't want Rock as Champion, WWE need to be moving away from part-time champions, where even if he's not fighting every week, which would help both heels and faces for only the odd match, faces against lower mid card guys, heels against local jobber talent, so there's at least a promo that isn't just the same fucking thing said every few weeks, just changing the names when they need to.

Angle needs to be used sparingly. I don't agree with WWE allowing him to work matches at all. his addictions to meds are just one of the many addictions he had to battle through, because he was also addicted to the crowd noise, the buzz, and his own belief that he could carry on fighting as his body broke down around him.

certainly don't want to see him fight Brock in a WWE ring. it could be a good nostalgic draw for UFC, and would at least then benefit from Brock not performing, or trying to perform, the same moves set over and over again.
