Ken Shamrock will be inducted into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame tonight live during the Countdown to Glory special. The one-hour Bound For Glory preview show will air at 7PM ET on AXS TV as well as on Impact Wrestling’s digital channels.
Shamrock was the first TNA champion when the company was still using the NWA championship, winning the vacant title in a Gauntlet for the Gold match on the inaugural TNA pay-per-view on June 19, 2002. After his one year deal came up, he left TNA and then returned for a very short time in 2004 before returning again in August of last year.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is supposed to be doing the introduction for Shamrock after the former UFC fighter asked his former WWE arch nemesis if he would be willing to do it in a tweet. Johnson quickly responded by agreeing to film it and congratulated Shamrock on making it to the Hall of Fame.
The 55-year-old joins Sting, Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, Team 3D, Earl Hebner, Gail Kim, and Abyss in the Impact Hall of Fame. The company did not induct anyone during the 2019 Bound For Glory weekend.
