Re: The legacy37: Ken "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Shamrock
Definitely a legend in MMA and IMO also in pro wrestling if you also consider his career outside WWE. Don't forget he was one of the first prominent shoot-wrestlers in UWF (Japan), and the first champion in their offspring Pancrase which became legit fighting. He is a pioneer in Shoowrestling and MMA no doubt.
In WWE, Ken Shamrock was a top midcarder in one of the hottest era's of prowrestling and an occasionally main eventer.
He had notable feuds with Team Canada, Rock, Val Venis, Blackman, Undertaker, Jericho and was together with Bossman part of the Corporation.
He introduced the Ankle Lock submission hold and many MMA influences that are still seen in WWE to this day.
King of the Ring Winner, IC champion and tag champion w/ Bossman.
He was also the first NWA champion in TNA.
I think Shamrock was a great technical wrestler in a time when there weren't alot of those guys.
He is in my opinion a legend and he should be inducted into the HOF one day.
