Ken Shamrock Talks About Heat with Triple H, Being Blackballed by WWE and More

Former WWE & UFC star Ken Shamrock was recently interviewed by Steve and The Scum of WGD Weekly. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

Having Heat With Triple H: “I’d like to clarify that. There was a guy named Mark Henry, a strong man. He was in the locker room and there were a few guys involved. Hunter was one of them that put s–t in his sandwich and I told him. So, I think Hunter didn’t like me for that and I think Hunter didn’t like me for the fact that when I first came in Vince put me over on him. I was truly understanding that I was the new guy coming in and I hadn’t put in my dues and I was getting a push, but I was doing what I was asked to do. I think Hunter had a real hard time dealing with that, especially with me being a real bad ass otherwise and there’s nothing he could do about it. Then opening my mouth to protect another human being, I think there is ribbing and there is having fun and then there is things where you cross over the line, and so I said something.”

Why he feels “Blackballed” by WWE: “I had put out my feelers, I had actually talked to Shane McMahon, he put a call in. I thought I had a pretty intricate part in changing the face of wrestling when I was able to ref the match with Bret Hart and Stone Cold, it changed the face of wrestling. I was in all the Pay Per Views and all the house shows, and I thought I made a pretty good impact and helped change pro wrestling, not by myself, but definitely I was a part of it in the Attitude Era. There is no recognition towards me or about me and I’m kind of disappointed.”

Wanting to get into the ring with Triple H: “When it comes to Hunter, I would love to get in the ring with him and show him what it’s like… help him understand that there is a lot of people in this world that have a lot of natural ability and natural talent and just because you don’t like them doesn’t mean it isn’t so… I would love to get in the ring with him and show him exactly who I am and what I’m about.”
