Ken Shamrock talks to The Angle Podcast
“World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock recently appeared as a guest on The Angle Podcast to promote tonight’s IMPACT Wrestling Bound For Glory 2020 pay-per-view as well as his upcoming IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame induction.
Below are some of the highlights from Ken Shamrock’s new interview.
On his unique Ankle Lock submission spike that is used as a spike for Kurt Angle and Jake Hager:
“All those guys have great minds. They know how to set it up and put it on at the right time to make the crowd explode. It is not easy to do. It’s a shooting move, so it’s not an easy thing to do. If these guys want to do it and learn, they have to do it and do it live. I take my hat off to them. People always ask me if it bothers me that they are using my move. How do you get mad about that? Someone always does it first. All of that is basically a compliment saying, like being in the hall of fame, it will be remembered forever. “
On not letting the thought of retirement hold you back:
“That’s where – I think it’s the first downside. It’s when you start to think about it, because that’s what happened with Daniel Cormier. There’s no question that if DC goes into that fight without retiring in his mind, and I know that he won’t agree and I know a lot of fans will too, but he doesn’t lose that fight. I don’t think he loses that fight, but I just think there’s something that goes through your head when you see the finish line. Same as if you’re in the race and you run to it. It’s different because I think you relax because you’re not looking to finish for a trophy, you’re not looking to cross that for a trophy or for the next step. “
On wanting a professional wrestling match against Bill Goldberg:
“In wrestling it’s very easy for me. It’s Goldberg. I felt like his character was a good fit with who I am and he worked pretty rigid. Unfortunately, I was in the other in the other company, but I am confident that one day we will be able to do it. I think his style with mine would fit very well ”.

Rumors leak about Cesaro’s huge WWE Championship
Cesaro has been getting a solid boost in recent weeks as he competed in excellent matches with players like Daniel Bryan and others. He also had an impressive performance in the Smackdown Elimination Chamber match. Brock Lesnar rumored to “replace” Drew McIntyre in another title match.
He was unable to win the match despite the fact that several fans wanted him to do so and also he was the favorite to win the match.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that WWE might still have a big match in store for Cesaro on the way to WrestleMania. Fastlane is currently closing in ahead of the Show of Shows and it is possible that Cesaro will face WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns as there is currently no match booked for The Tribal Chief as of yet.
Reigns faces Edge in Mania, which means there will be no title match for him until then, or they do something to pay Reigns against Cesaro with the idea that Cesaro could win and Edge would face him, although I don’t expect that people accept. that so seriously.
Given that Cesaro is one of the best workers in the company ring right now, there is no doubt that the match will be excellent if it happens. Roman Reigns’ new creative control could play a role.
Matt Riddle rejects Undertaker ‘fight’ in WWE
The Undertaker became a subject of controversy after he shared his views on today’s professional wrestlers last month. The Undertaker said he has a hard time enjoying WWE as a fan as it is too “soft” for him. The Phenom also stated that he preferred the WWE Superstars of his wrestling era as they were “real men” compared to the WWE Superstars of today.
Several professional wrestlers from different promotions weighed in on what he said and it now appears that a current WWE Champion also shared his thoughts on the matter.
“Pro wrestling is the most outrageous high school you’ve ever attended. Monday Night Raw is like, ‘what’s going to happen this week?’ If someone has a problem with someone, no one says it. It’s always like “pst pst”. I wonder why we hear things like this? Say something, do something! I’m not saying you have to go the route of The Undertaker and fighting each other and being men about it! I’m saying let’s talk about it. But hey, it is what it is! “
Smackdown Main Eventer teases his departure from WWE
Smackdown superstar Cesaro’s contract was scheduled to end after WrestleMania 37 and because of that, WWE finally dropped it from a massive angle that was eventually given to Shinsuke Nakamura. It was an excellent performance in the Smackdown Gauntlet match before the Royal Rumble event last month. Roman Reigns’ creative control on Smackdown just leaked.
Cesaro reportedly accepted a new contract with WWE, but it was not confirmed whether it was in writing or verbal. Cesaro was recently interviewed by WWE’s Ryan Satin on FOX, where he was asked about his future at the company, and scoffed at the idea of resigning and re-signing, choosing to leave it a mystery.
“Well… could. I could certainly confirm or deny it. What I love about all this is that there is always some mystery in everything, right? And I feel like that air of mystery has to stay with a lot of things because that’s what makes it magical and that’s what makes it special. So, you know, who knows? “
Cesaro also expressed his thoughts on the exciting promotion he recently made on Talking Smack.
“In my head, and that wasn’t premeditated, it was like, ‘Okay, you’re going to go to Talking Smack.’ It was one of those nights where we had a six-man fight before the [Elimination] Chamber, so a lot was going on. So, I didn’t have time to think. “
“It was like, ‘Okay, you’re going to go to Talking Smack, and then we’ll do this, and you have the last word. So, get it right. ‘I was like,’ … it’s okay. ‘ Once again, I said, ‘Ahhh! ‘I didn’t even have time to think and then I said,’ Okay, I have a kind of idea what I mean. “Because I was really thinking how extremely grateful I am to everyone who has supported me and I also feel like I found the perfect words to say how I feel.”
