The Rock inducts Ken Shamrock into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame

Finally…The Rock has come to Impact Wrestling!

While it wasn’t in the ring, Johnson recorded the induction video for Ken Shamrock who was inducted into the Impact Hall of Fame yesterday during the Countdown to Glory special on AXS TV.

Johnson said that when he thinks back of some of his memorable moments in professional wrestling, there is one man who he owes a great amount of debt and gratitude to, and that’s Ken Shamrock.

The Rock explained that when he was still cutting his teeth as a heel in WWE, in order to be the best bad guy, he needed the best hero, the best badass, so he could up his “street cred” and that person was Ken Shamrock.

He said that Shamrock was in a point in his career where he could have refused to work with him, just like others did, but he didn’t, and the two went on to wrestle all around the world as he learned a great deal from him while Shamrock took him under his wing.

He called Ken Shamrock the world’s most dangerous man, the founding father of MMA and the UFC, and a pillar in the greatest era of professional wrestling – the Attitude Era.

“My friend, my brother, congratulations on the induction into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame,” Johnson said. “I’m extremely proud of you and thank you so much for the memories, thank you so much for the sweat equity and thank you for being just an awesome dude when I needed it in my career. I really appreciated it, very proud of you, enjoy this and hm, you got some Teramana Tequila coming for you and I want you to enjoy it.”
