Ken Shamrock deserves one last WWE match
UFC Hall of Famer and former WWE King of The Ring and NWA World Champion Ken Shamrock is still hoping for one more run with the company.
Despite being 53 years old, the former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion believes he still has a lot to offer WWE.
However even though he can be found on WWE's official website and the WWE Network, many believe that Ken is being blacklisted from WWE TV, despite being included on WWE games WWE 13 and WWE 2K16.
Ken Shamrock left WWE in 1999 after a 2 year run on what was believed to be on good terms, with WWE under the assumption that 'The World's Most Dangerous Man' would return to the company in 2000. However Shamrock began to receive more and more big money MMA bookings and opted to remain focused on his MMA career.
He would return to wrestling briefly in 2002, but for TNA Wrestling when they first started. Ken would win the NWA World Championship on the debut NWA:TNA show.
Ken Shamrock has said time and time again that he would love to return to WWE. He recently said that he has contacted WWE before but they 'ignore' him. This is what Shamrock said about a potential return:
I doubt it. I've been saying this for years. I'm not understanding that with everybody that I've seen come back - Kurt Angle, The Rock - how isn't Ken Shamrock there? If anybody makes sense in coming back and doing something with those guys coming back, there is no other better person than myself.
Former WWE and Impact Wrestling star Shelly Martinez (Ariel/Salinas) recently claimed on social media that Shamrock is being blacklisted by WWE because Triple H has issues with him.
I don't know what Triple H's issues with Ken Shamrock are. It is a shame as despite being 53 years old, Shamrock is in incredible shape and would be capable of wrestling in some entertaining matches, maybe even being able to hold his own in matches with Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar.
Shamrock has competed in MMA as recently as Bellator 149 on February 19, 2016 when he lost to Royce Gracie, but certainly held his own in the fight.
I would love to see Ken Shamrock put in some cameo appearances for WWE and at least wrestle one more match, as I think he deserves it.
I commend his passion for wanting to climb back in the ring at his age, and I know he is well capable of wrestling a highly entertaining and phyical brawl.
