Just two weeks ago, Ken Shamrock did an interview and said that he wanted to return to the WWE but they won’t return his calls and he feels he has been blacklisted. However, WWE.com interviewed him on Oct. 23 in a “Where Are They Now” feature, meaning that contact was finally made.
This doesn’t mean that Shamrock will be back, but there is the fact that he was put back into the public eye last week when he appeared in a show on Spike TV about his adopted brother Frank Shamrock. The show climaxed with Ken and Frank reconciling after many years of animosity and apologizing to each other.
Shamrock has since said that he feels he is in the perfect wrestling shape of his life, and since he no longer fights in MMA, he can stay big and feels he can contribute more than ever in the world of professional wrestling.
In the interview, he talked about his childhood and how the Shamrock Boys’ Home saved his life. Much like Frank, Ken allowed Bob Shamrock to adopt him after he turned 18 and Bob set up Ken to train for pro wrestling under the legendary Mad Dog Buzz Sawyer, Gen Anderson and Nelson Royal.
He got his start in pro wrestling, but then moved on to become one of the UFC’s first major stars. Soon after that, Shamrock joined the WWE and went on to become a champion in the Attitude Era.
Unfortunately, the interviewer never asked about Shamrock returning to the WWE. Instead the interview concluded with Ken Shamrock saying he wants to follow in Bob Shamrock’s footsteps and open his own home for boys and girls and help others like Bob helped him.
