Ken Shamrock was recently interviewed by The Hannibal TV. Here are some of the highlights:
How he would fare against Brock Lesnar if they were both in their prime:
“It’s not about bragging. It’s not about being better than somebody. It’s about skill sets. There’s no question in my mind that the times that when I was in my prime, that I was the most well-rounded fighter out there, or in the world. I was the one who knew how to kickbox, I did kickboxing and Muay Thai. I competed in events in Japan, and I was a submission specialist going into the UFC for the very first time, so I was the most well-rounded fighter in there, and being able to fight a guy like Brock Lesnar, who is is a wrestler, who has very limited skills in striking…in my prime, and him in his prime, he doesn’t have a chance. It’s the same thing as (Dan) Severn. You can’t beat me. How can you beat me?”
What he’d say to Vince McMahon about why he hasn’t ever returned:
“I think I would want to know why…because everybody else has come back. I mean, look at all these guys that have gone and come back and had issues with them, went to other organizations, WCW and come back and they still got in. So I would really want to know the truth; what was it that I did so bad that kept me out? Because obviously, I have the talent, all those moves I brought in that everyone is using now. If you want to talk about somebody who has changed the face of wrestling because of them being in it, I think it’s pretty clear I did that.”
