Former Champion Says A WWE Return Would Have To ‘Make Sense’

Former Champion Says A WWE Return Would Have To ‘Make Sense’ WWE

A former WWE Champion has opened up the possibility of a return to WWE after more than twenty years away from the company.

Ken Shamrock has maintained a presence in wrestling with various runs in TNA/Impact Wrestling, NJPW and on the independent circuit.

Speaking on the Ten Count podcast, Shamrock said of a possible in-ring return:

“I think at this point in my career, we’re past those.”

In July 2019, following his run with Bellator MMA, Shamrock announced he had no plans to fight again and announced he was starting his own bare-knuckle boxing promotion, Valor.

When asked about the possibility of returning to WWE as a manager or a trainer, Shamrock explained:

“You know, like I said, not that I would say no.

“Obviously, I’d have to look and make sure it was the right thing.

“It’d have to make sense, right?

“So yeah, of course, if that was to come around, it made sense, yeah.

“But right now, man, I’ve got so much going on that we have planned.

“There’s gonna be a lot of stuff happening.”

Whilst Shamrock was inducted into the Impact Hall of Fame in 2020, the former WWF Intercontinental Champion, WWF Tag Team Champion and 1998 King of the Ring hasn’t yet been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
