Former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was a big fan of Ken Shamrock, according to the former Intercontinental Champion.

The World's Most Dangerous Man spent nearly two years in the Stamford-based company between 1997 and 1999. During his time in the company, the 58-year-old held the Intercontinental Championship and the Tag Team Titles alongside the Big Boss Man. He also won the 1998 King of the Ring tournament.

Speaking to Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Shamrock claimed that McMahon was a big fan of his work.

"Vince was a huge fan. And I think he became a bigger fan after he kind of saw me work. Because you could be a fan of something and really love somebody and they go in there and they just, you know, they're horrible. You still love them but, you know, they're not for you, it's not gonna work so it goes down a little bit. But with me and Vince, I think once he saw what I could do, I think he became even more of a supporter for me, you know, in pro wrestling," he said. (0:44- 1:12)
