Ken Shamrock’s Impact Hall of Fame induction
The Rock said that he’s shared the ring with many people, but one man he owes debt and gratitude to is Ken Shamrock. At a time where he was cutting his teeth as a heel in WWE, he needed the best hero or badass, and that was Shamrock. He could have refused working with this kid, but he did. He called Ken a founding member of the UFC and the Attitude Era. He said he was extremely proud of Ken and thanked him for the memories.
Matt Striker then introduced Shamrock. He called this a journey and a lot of people got him here to this goal. He thanked Nelson Royal, who helped him get into professional wrestling. He thanked Vince McMahon for giving him the opportunity to enter the WWE at a time when wrestling was hot.
He thanked Bret Hart and The Rock for helping him build his character, and said he appreciated Rock’s speech. He then thanked his family and the fans all across the world. He finished the speech by thanking the fans as without them, athletes can’t do what they do
