"Dog lifted. Man I am very very honored to be right. Appreciate you having me on. May before we get into all the all the juicy stuff that that first sparked our conversation online I just WANNA take second to geek out here man So do I mean I'm forty? Let's put this into perspective your accomplishments. I am forty years old and I remember being thirteen fourteen years old? We're talking one thousand nine hundred ninety three ninety four I'd go to my buddy Christian's house and like what even have cars like. We were riding our bikes Christians because he had the biggest TV and we were putting in VHS tapes of the ultimate fighting championship and watching you and hoist. Go at it You you were such Just an instrumental part of this sports history. And that's that's gotTa feel. That's gotTa feel amazing. What are your thoughts man? You know it's it's I guess it's Kinda hard when you were my position to can look back but I was seemed like I was almost involved with almost every aspect of the different generations. You know the early late late eighties. the early nineties mid nineties late nineties and even the early two thousands It just felt like I been there since the beginning and and a lot longer than most people's careers you know. I went for like thirty year career so it was pretty amazing for me to be able to be involved. That lumpy in the lot of big fights that changed organizations Directions to be able to help them succeed whether it was in Japan. Whether it's here in the states It was just an honor for me to be able to be a part of that being able to give so much to the sport. Enter the fans. It's funny how it's changed over the years when I You watch the fighters now and everybody's you know multi-discipline everybody's an intimate guy everybody's got all this different training the big draw in the beginning. I think at least for the young teenagers who were just like sparked to get involved like Oh man. Who's you have this great boxer? You had this great Jujitsu guy which discipline is going to win. And that was kind of the original draw into that. You'd have a shoot finer. You'd have a guy who's you know karate or whatever and That was that was the fun part. And now everybody's got everything. So what are your thoughts on how? It's kind of evolved for right now and do you ever miss the old days of those. Those strict disciplined fighters sticking with their disciplined and putting that discipline up against something else. Yeah it was fun and the game because it was literally boxer against wrestler Wrestler against kickboxer and Judo Guy Against Kickboxer was just it was so raw. I mean you literally got to look at guys come from their disciplines and go out and compete and as you saw the development of myself and hoist Gracie Go in and literally just you know take part guys that Were world-class get at world class. Boxers and they just felt just didn't have a chance because they couldn't stop it. Take down well then. You started seeing the evolution of the actual strikers go. Well let me learn how to defend to take down. And then all of a sudden guys Maury Smith Marco who with Guy started learning to defend kate downs and then all of a sudden they started winning. They started beating the grapplers. And then of course the grapplers had to go. Wait a minute maybe I oughta start learning how to strike and set up my punches off a takedown like fake takedown start. Striking guys get efficient enough to be able to land those strikes. Then you saw that start to take take hold and then you started seeing the grafters take back over again so it was fun to watch the transitions and how the sport has developed through the fighters really having an understanding of how they have to train to win. And I said it way back when I was out in Japan Before the US's started. I said on an interview on and you can find it in the archives in Japan where I said that when I was fighting over in Japan that You know people are GonNa have to learn how to strike and how to do submissions very effectively in order to be good these these types of events and that's when it was no-holds-barred in Japan You know back when it was the host part but Mixed Martial Arts in Japan when the USC opened up was with the no-holds-barred But I saw early on. I realize right away when I was fighting pancras that you had to be really skilled at striking and also at takedown submissions. In order for you to be a world champion and so when I went into the very first. Usc I was the only one that understood that in came in with an actual background in kickboxing. I'd actually had a fight against the world champion in a movie. Thi- flight adjust to challenge myself and help me get my striking in the kicks down with the knees and the elbows into my submission game so I was as much as people Didn't notice a lot of that because I did rely on my take shakedowns quite a bit earlier in my career. I was a well rounded fighter from the beginning. Yeah I was GONNA say that a lot of people just would would call you a shoot fighter or just classified as a wrestler and. I don't think you make it that long as long as you did. And being dominant as you were and such a formidable opponent as you were just sticking to a single discipline I mean. It's obvious that you had a bunch of different experience man. Yeah I learned early onto and I really felt like that was the future no matter where we end up at that. That was what you're going to have to be very disciplined standup and ground. Emmy looked at as you know you know anybody can go into a gym or DOJ Joe or a UFC know camp and learn striking. You can learn fighting. You can learn Ju Jitsu I did. I fought for a while. I did some tournaments. It was funny. Kept me in shape. But there's something about just the heart of a true fighter. I mean anybody who knows your back story or cares to look into. It will soon see you. You had your first real fight at like ten years old. You know getting you thought you were about to get jumped and the guy was like I'm GonNa meet you at three o'clock or three thirty or something. Meet me out back. We're GONNA fight. You heard the word fight and busted him in his face. And you just didn't want you know it was instinct for you and that's that. I don't think you can teach that I really don't think people will have that or they don't and then you build upon those skills so you have this sort of this perfect combination of like the whole lion on top of the training and everything else that you went through which I think has led to you having the career that you mad well it was in my DNA. No question that this was how I was brought up. fighting At the age of five is really really when I really had my first fight and I don't know if you qualify because like I jumped in the in the bathroom with a bunch of kids and got kicked around a little bit but but that was my life going to and from school walking to school. Walking Home School Me and my brothers growing up in this neighborhood where my mom was at home a whole lot. My biological mother so we were raising ourselves. Who were getting into fights. We're constantly in trouble so it was really. I was raised that way and so fighting to me wasn't It wasn't a bad thing. Most kids get into a fight and their their heart rate goes to who chess right for us. It was a normal thing. It was almost like going out and playing baseball for most kids. That's what fighting was to us when you're that young and that's already happening to you gotta just change the way you view the world you know the the every day every school event every time you're face to face with somebody that's making you uncomfortable or whatever it's gotta you know it's Gotta. Sorta shape the way you view the world and realize if I don't find money you taking advantage of and and in most cases kids are brought up to learn how to talk me and my brothers when we grew up in and we were basically our own a lot of times You didn't talk because most of the time you're standing there If you allow people to be able to gather their friends around or be able to Be ready for you That's when things turned out badly but if you were the one that hit I if you were wanted to strike first and get off I you were able to walk out of there But if you waited and waited for people to start gathering around or friends start to gather allowed Then all of a sudden you're in a bad situation so as we were growing up at a young age. If somebody got in your face you put them down right now and then then you walked away or ran because they had friends around but she didn't stand there and start talking to one and allowing the crowd to build up because a lot of times. The crowd wasn't on your side so You didn't do a whole talking. You got the job done and you ran or you are. You walked away from it after you put down. He didn't stick around and wait for the trouble to start happening all over again. Yeah that that makes total sense. I wish more people would take that advice For sure the last thing I want to say about this whole piece before we get into to the real reason we supposed to talk. Today is I always knew about you. I was always a Fan You were definitely you know. One of the one of the main stars that me. All my friends were looking to So again it's a pleasure having you on the on the show today but always. I always saw you as I mean. Of course I never at that age. You weren't sitting in diving. There was no youtube. We weren't watching interviews. I didn't really know you didn't. I didn't understand who you are as a person we just got that you know super jacked up vibe. When you're in the cage the few talking points you have to build the fight card and you always came off as like this really rough dude like like almost arrogant or mean and I just always thought God. He's he's kind of a bad dude you know. He's not just strong. He's under the world's most dangerous man. He's he's just Kinda mean and I always thought that even as an adult and never really. It's funny how you see the celebrities you make up your mind who they are as a person and then I don't remember the year but when you were the coach on the ultimate fighter The for people who don't know there's a show with the UFC you when you were a coach opposite Tito Ortiz man. My entire opinion of you changed Always respected you but really started to like you just as a as a man I was like. He's a good dude. Like you really cared about those.

I don't you don't talk about it much here on the show but Hopefully he's listening to this one and fast forward to this part but but Daniel and a few of my other friends we would get together. We would go to Christians House when we were like fifteen and we would put in tapes literal. Vhs tapes of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. That the words. You have the phrase you have see wasn't even a thing yet. We didn't wouldn't talk about it that way. It was the ultimate fighting championship putting these different disciplines up against one another and we would go put in these these VHS tapes and We can shamrock was terrifying. This guy we were blown away at that time a few years before. We were making bets going. Would you for a million dollars? Would you spend thirty seconds in the ring with Mike Tyson?

Go to Valor vk. If you're in to some sportsmen like yet extremely skilled and vulnerable combat sports but there's another thing about Ken shamrock. People don't know you hear things like lion's den that's where you know. That was the big fight camp. That was his team back. In the day we would go see other fighters it'd be. Oh this guy's connected with lion's den. If he had the logo on his back he had earned the respect and was under the tutelage of Ken Shamrock. Lion's den now is known as lion's den ministries. Ken Shamrock is a religious man but I am absolutely honored to have that man on the show right now. Please join me in welcoming the world's most dangerous man Ken Shamrock to.

"American guy not heard porn hubs hiring arduous. Argonne exactly Don't ask me how I know that. What are you up to these days? Man What are you spend your time on. Well I'll tell you what man something that it I think Hopefully Mike might be interested in is I went up to Columbia. Meditating and I did stem cells and I'll man I'm one of those guys. People say oh due to the SPENCERS McGee changing us. I get whatever I heard that a million times and as like okay. Well then I actually got footage from Hughes News. Chuck Liddell Nashville Story Documentary unbelievable. And that's what sold me. I was like okay. I'll give it a try so hi go up there and I do this thing and put me under that. Give me all these stem cells. I wake up one morning and tell me you're gonNA be sore in these different join areas and I was okay so I wake up and I'm going to get up going bathroom. It's like three four in the morning. I get into the bathroom and I go back down to lay in bed and I was like like my shoulders Schmidt. He's a shoulder older but where I get really stiff my back of my neck because I broke my neck twice in my lower back once in the middle of my bags all jacked up and I'm like there's no pain I got no. I got no information nation. I was like okay. I'M GONNA go to bed. I'm dreaming I wake up a nine o'clock next morning I'm like wake up again. I'm like I don't have any inflammation I'm still sewing shows and everything. They warned that and I was like. Wow this okay. I'm going to slow down on this. I'M NOT GONNA jump out of here and say everything's working. I wait a week. I I couldn't raise my arms above my head going airport. I go this high because I've got a titanium bowl my shoulder. I mean completely reconstructed so hard time arms within a week eight two weeks Bam. I'm like wow. This is a game changer. Literally I went up to Australia and I did a forty minute match with Dan Seven. I'd never been able to do that before these stem cells dreams. I've been a now I'm GonNa do it. Three weeks now. Is supposed to see more results. David Chiu said hey this is just beginning man. You're going to see so many results within six months that it's going to be a game changer. It's already is for me so I'm like man if I can share this with people people and let them know how it's done to me and they can help them and I'm all about that so I hope that maybe you'll get a chance to see what that is because I really truly and I'm not saying this. It's just to say it I'm telling you it is a game changer. Put a number Dan. I'm still sure but one thing to talk about. Is I want to talk about my love breath. He's I fought in a very first. UFC thought over in Japan with open hands strikes. I fought with four ounce gloves on. I fought MUI tie of. I've done it all. I've fought every box. Sparred with guys to help them get ready for their fights don at all and the one thing that I fell in love with his bare knuckle and the the reason why I fell in love with it was because I felt like like this is pure man against man God given talent and that there's nothing there that's going to get in way I mean you hit it with a jab accounts right anytime you hit some accounts but if you miss it it also counts because it works against you your your hand so I fell in love with that man. I said you know if I ever get a chance to bring back bare knuckle. Because they started putting four ounce ungloved four ounce gloves on guys started saying. WE'RE GONNA make it safer. Well the reality of that's not not true. They wanted to protect the guys that were winning the guys that were knocking people out. Because they knew they could him in the back of the head the side of the head and they wouldn't damage their hand and so they've made it into a four billion dollar business. Kudos could job. But that's not what I fell in love with I fell in love with a bare knuckle part because it was so pure and I said you. You know I get a chance to do that. I'm going to bring it back. Two guys are GonNa get in the ring. They're going to stand toe to toe or whatever they WANNA do move move their feet and however they want to do but it's going to stay on their feet now going to the ground bare knuckle fighting. I'm bringing it back. People kept screaming. Stand up stand up. Well we're standing them up rice smell. Why do you think we finding so much? I think he's good at it. We won yeah something we want something from the status the beginning of time too strong men in the World Khili leave. Since the since Achilles everybody wanted to be the toughest man in the world king of the Hill Yeah respect yes backs minute works against you have to get old. They start looking at you like what happened to my respect. No even that becomes a form respect right. Well Yes yes depending on that even that becomes a former addict. Yeah I've seen this emergence of bare knuckle and I think it's really interesting and so you you believe that are maybe the science says is it would make sense. I mean you put four ounce. He put waited accessories on your on your weapons and that's GonNa add damage you know. It's like a football helmet and football. You know really Louis. You're just putting his a spear on that thing given a guy a chance to do more damage without hurting their hand. But you know and England pinnacle fitness. It's brilliant is it quicker. It's quicker so fast. Malaysia went in and fought lobe of I think it was when conor McGregor Gregor's guys and it was really boxing against and win. A boxer goes into a bare knuckle. Fight Mall Nausea. I think made a mistake because he thought ought bare knuckle boxing. Well that's crazy because you gotta think about boxing. You got eight ounce gloves well. Those gloves are a lot bigger. So you can pick a boo block bareknuckle. You can't block footwork. You gotta be moved more. Came in there with the wrong idea. He thought he could block L.. He got he got the outlet up and so I think that's I really think that's the exciting part of it because it's almost like an a very beginning days with UFC. When they first I started out? It's like now we had that same concept where you're trying to figure out. Everybody says boxing doubt better or MMA might adapt better. And I'm thinking to myself. I think it's individual. I think it's the character of an individual that says. Hey I'm going to come in. I'm going to learn because it's different than a lot of these guys. Want to try to think it's similar I same as not bare. Knuckle is his own beast. It's different it's faster from the time. The Bell Rings through the end of the bill. Third Round it's on there's no feeling Out Process it's like when he thought it was like right. I mean you're right now a lot of guys they always want to kind of get that one or two rounds of feel it out will embarrass learn how you take one or two rounds of feel it out and you're done getting over what what's your feeling on it. Mike interesting with the rule that the average Abbas not really like bare knuckle fighting boxing. They had different rules. You know they didn't have the Markets the Queensbury. Three minutes. One minute rest if you knock the guy down eighteen eighty if you're not gonNA have ended around so you're not the guy down ten times. He's not going to ten rounds. You know. So they had to change the rule but I think it's pretty awesome. It has it has had the base wants to see it. Yeah I've seen me. I think it's necessary very well. It seems very excited. I don't go like one one fighting sport worse than another spite. But we're fighting. You can die fighting. That's the unwritten law when we found a contract that's the law that we know clearly seen it over and over then as growing up being fight. Unwritten law you can die training in the fight and I'm glad Eddie said that because I hear a lot of people trying to say bare knuckles more dangerous or boxing's more dangerous because more people have died will have been. It's been here forever but it's just starting back back back or MMA is to me. It's this man every single combat sport. Whether it's football I mean even is soccer. I mean there's danger in any athletic sports so when people talk about this yeah people can get her. Yes somebody may die. You get it like this. Anybody who steps in the ring signs a contract and understands what they're getting into. There's a trade off like we talked about earlier. There's a status about being fighter about being the best in the world about combat killy's being on top of the world. There's IT's a trade off to that too. You can die so you don't have to do it. But if you want the status to but listen to look at my life a living Brownsville Brooklyn Oakland more cut off welfare. I'M GONNA dine. It's building if I don't robber still get shot from still. Somebody should get caught and put the rest of my life. I'M GONNA die and get get paid money. My life is worth it. I thought the my fourth in my life for it. If I'd I fucking signed the contract I don't you think how many people all over the world you don't think we you know how many people would have had no shit say they got talent. Some people don't even know how to find the fuck I do for money. Yeah Yeah if you get the word clear nobody cares. Diana's we come to the concept of real concept. No one cares about dying when I can eat is the thought that about that. Yeah Yeah that argument is it. Goes nowhere you know because like you said I mean. That's that's part of. Why people do it you know is because the stakes are so high and you look at the White People Watch it because the stakes are so hot? It's it's exciting and this is why I think that bare knuckle is really starting to take off is because it is fast being more when they sit down WanNa be especially in today's generation with all the social media. Everything is happening out there. They don't WanNa wait for something to happen. They don't WanNA WANNA wait for storyline to play out. They want it now your bare knuckle. Is that kind of fighting words happening now or you still fighting Ken. No Oh that's funny when people say there's other people have mentioned it on their shows and our people our age still in great shape that I'm just curious when you're in great shape wrestle like I've got a show coming out with impact on the twentieth of September where I'm not twenty September twentieth of October. I don't even remember. I got so much going on but aggressing for impact. They've got a doing with them.

"If anybody's working with them need help him understand that that money will be gone in a heartbeat heartbeat if he does something stupid and he gets sued he's gonna all that money is going to be gone and so he's in a good place right now he needs to work working doing his sales and stuff that he's doing and keep his nose clean stay out of that problem and because that's you look at mike tyson man guys living on borrowed time because he put himself into too many different situations because he felt like he was untouchable so let's end on this we we have w w of course a w who there's new japan wrestling doing really great these days where in your opinion does impact fit into all of this i think impact the bottom when it comes to w. w. f. a. e. w. but it's rising feel that oh yeah i think we're at a great spot right now the things i'm seeing happening within that locker room the talent that we have there i think it'll be probably six months to a year and we're going to be right there right at the bottom were WWF sat i i believe that they're doing it right storylines being very creative i've they're not afraid to cross the line and do things that may be controversial and i think in pro wrestling is entertainment and it is is a big e when it comes to pro wrestling entertainment and the more that you can shock people and get people to go wow that just happened better off you are when's your next match it is friday this friday yes and it's airing on access tv yes access TV we are at melrose melrose ballroom in new york city were doing a tv taping okay and so i'm excited about that it's gonna be fun i'm actually gonna be wrestling for the title against sami callahan and so i'm excited about that but here's one more thing i wanna do 'cause i love working with at risk kids yes and we have something we're doing with the variety boys and girls club in queens we're albie doing a rock paper scissors i'm challenging the kids there uh-huh so that's today today provide believes from five to six so that's fun i love working with is at five PM that's right but i love working with kids and being able to make them laugh and have fun because i came from a hard family when i was young and not a group homes for me to be able to go out and actually make kids is laugh and have fun with him is really big and important to me how do you look so good houses possible how can you look like that at fifty five and fly like that and edith athlete houses possible you are defying logic i think for me it's about dedication and i think the one thing that i missed i probably took about ten years off my career i'm not doing well is because i didn't rest i didn't get my chance i didn't say okay i'm taking a year off never did that i was lucky if i took a month two months off and i think that hurt me hurt me really bad i thought i had a longer career much more successful at the end than i did because i didn't take that time so i think for me it's really about being dedicated and be committed to my training and my diet but at the same time making sure that i read properly i wish you the best my friend run and i don't say it lightly i mean people like you you are the reason why people like me get to cover mixed martial arts for a living so thank you for everything you've done for the sport and i wish issue nothing but success in this new venture back with impact i remember when you won the TNA slash NWEA title way back when like seventeen or so years ago remember that vividly in it's cool to see you back thriving healthy happy doing your thing over there so thank you for doing this i really appreciate it and wish you the best this friday i'm beyond priebus thank you all right so that was a lot of fun great great stuff from ken shamrock always great to have the the guests in studio TST what did you learn from camera today well i learned first of all who ken shamrock was wide i had never heard of him until today a real new 'b he was very big very big i in the history of you have seen wrestling you know me i'm not a wrestling guy guy but as i'm warning there's all sorts of crossover now between the two sports which i had no idea so very influential figure he thinks that today's fighters are soft at the NFL was a joke i've learned a lot yes he is a very a very smart guy very passionate guy and a guy who has seen it done at all so it was a pleasure and honor to have him in studio also by the way we had the roadshow last week and i do believe you attended your first you have stephen although i have a bone to pick with you we did the the the roadshow if you will the live show so a peter rosenberg midtown manhattan it was gray with a lot of fans there wanna thank everyone who came out prior to UFC two forty four i went to do my duties and then you disappeared i did not hear from immu i didn't get a text and call i was worried sick i don't even know if you actually attended the event we have not even spoken about it we're expect aero you ditched or radio oh show halfway through to go to your tv show you told me earlier that you'd be up top somewhere watching this so i'm like okay areas a big star now he's going to be a big star he has the need me so i figured you had just forgotten about me and then you didn't want to be seen with me in public where did you go honestly did you go to the arena i go to the arena i had some trouble getting into the arena arena because security was a little tight i was there with rosenberg and a guy from ninety seven ESPN new york and we watch the fights in the ESPN sweet and we had a blast wow you watch the entire thing so we we may have gotten some wine during the early prelims but then we we got there just in time for the kevin leaf fight and did you enjoy it i did enjoy it was a lot of fun now i thought the fights themselves left a little something to be desired wow i didn't think especially the NFL i didn't think it was a great eight five knows a lot of fanfare round but the fight itself then thing was anything special wow near deir until it went i think that one went the distance instance right but it's still like wasn't a wildly entertaining fight is pretty average and i enjoyed it though i enjoy the whole scene was what was your favorite fighter later favorite performance anything that you enjoy anything oh yeah i lo- i listen i certainly enjoyed the the beer that i was having sweet from top up yeah i mean i enjoyed the whole i can't i won't heavenly was a great i think kevin lee y i'm trying to think of the story anderson johnny walker did you see that oh i think i'm unbelievable or what do you want for me ariel unbelievable and not even attacks not even you know i'm k- don't be worried don't feel like you you may have low like nothing nothing update i didn't think you wanted to hear i was worried sick i didn't know that yeah you next day wow i didn't i didn't know you cared this much i'm yeah i mean as we established a couple of weeks you're just a young pup i feel like your mother would want me to look out for you when you're in the big city i appreciate that area okay all right i'm changing into my mind about this conversation let's get to some reviews let's okay all right so the first one.

"Look at Sammy Callahan. Kinda reminds me of somebody that I I I saw when I first put on TV for the first time. Watch pro wrestling. The first person I ever saw was mad dog buzz Sawyer. Sammy Callahan reminds me a little a bit of mad dog buzzer. I believe mad dog. Buzzer was an influence with you early on in your career. Do you see that with Sammy and tell me as some stories you gotTa have some Buzz Sawyer Stories. Of course I do I don't know enough about Sammy to compare him to Bud uh-huh. I do know he's very talented and he looks very very strong. which is going to be a problem for cage cages usually pretty strong very acrobatic great eight great worker but that should be pretty challenging match for Brian so we'll see what happens but with the with buzz I remember it was at towards towards the end of his career. He's still going over to Japan and he would bring guys up. I came up there because I wanted you progressing. I just finished playing ball in college. my dad had turned me on a pro wrestling and I said Yeah give that a shot so we would drive up from Reno to Sacramento and we were supposed to go to his his is gem while his Jim was the park has I down the street from his house and so he would go out there and the first battle maybe the first couple of weeks we go down on the weekends and and run and doing pushups and just doing conditioning and then he brought me aside and News House Office he goes. Hey I got this thing. I want. I want you to do because I don tough bands and I was shooter and shooter means somebody that's wrestler fighter guy that can take guys listen beat him up in the ring well but says listen. I'm getting twelve hundred to fifteen hundred dollars from each person that comes in and he goes man. I'm getting old old. I gotta go to Japan. I gotTa do all these other things and he says I need to take over and and shoot on these guys. Go take them down like Russell and he goes no make him quit. Okay quite not man. He says I don't want him to pass says they gotta go and if they give up in in an amount it's thirty minutes or whatever whatever time limit was if they don't make it then they're out and so. I said okay so we go to the park four guys. This show up to these guys were like was called horse. Big Old muscular played football. I think I weighed probably about two fifteen at the time I was always strong benched somewhere six hundred pounds as really really strong and has great wrestler a great fighter and so these guys would come in and and buzzword hit the clock okay okay go out in the middle of this park and so I started beating the hell out of these guys and they would quit each of them quit well then I found out afterwards that they had all paid twelve hundred to fifteen eight hundred dollars. I didn't know that will buzz was kicked me three hundred dollars each time I did it. I was like Oh cool gas money and some food you know coming down here but I wasn't learning anything right. He was just shooting is and he would go to Japan every so often is probably would come in and he would run the classes and just speak is up you know at the oldest mckearney mckearney way this is amazing so people would join buzz sawyers wrestling school pay fifteen hundred bucks and then they will get thirty minutes with you. beat the. Shit Shit out of us. They quit and keep the money I mean well then that came to me not my father basically because he was the one pushing me said we're not learning anything here. It wasn't but two weeks after we decided to go somewhere else buzzed died he oh deed he had a bad a bad issue with uh with cocaine and I guess he went into a nightclub and he hadn't paid the right person or done something because he was a tough dude right so when he took stuff from some people he didn't care. He just took a few. You Ain't going to get it back and well I adding somebody gave him a hotshot. Damn Feld and found him in the bathroom on the floor dead and so we had already made plans to be going down to Nelson royals and it was Nelson Gene Anderson's North Carolina where I did another tryout and it's funny because when I was down there doing this tryout they had was running doing things that buzz was doing and then at the end of the tryout they had the shooter come in and I was like oh no they ain't no and so I remember doing these things we were in this cow pit. He had this land out there and he had us running running right well. Tommy Tommy Angel I was running and I went all the way up and I touched the line but I didn't go all the way down. Iran bag and I was blown everybody away and as I get the time he goes do it over and I was like oh he goes you touchline do it overnight already done like ten of them. So I said Okay Boom I did another one did ten more no problem so it seemed like they were picking on me right like they're trying to get me to quit and so we get into the wrestling and this do comes in and he's probably about got to forty not muscular beg and he's probably about six foot my height a little bit and so they said. Okay twenty minutes and I'm begging can you guys have no idea what's coming here. So we go at it. Do is pretty good right. There's no questions pretty good but we got into in about fifteen minutes and I started taken over on him and then I just thought them beat them up and so I passed right but and we paid money thirty five hundred for this for his we drove all the way up there Mooresville Mooresville thirty five hundred for this and I was like I ain't you guys are not making me quit so I beat this dude up and and there was a couple of the guys even when they lost right they still lost lost but they still passed so all you know they were just beaten guys. I'm taking their money. They just WANNA make sure they're tough and I think most restaurants no this back can that day people didn't do pro wrestling unless they were tough. You had to pass tryouts. You had to go through certain things in order to make these different schools that rat because SMU wants to do is go nightclub. Get Your Butt chicken you carrying there strap so it was it was interesting to me six months later. I was carrying that strap. I mean I just pick it up so fast and end up going to WWF for a couple of house shows and over to Japan to me awesome. It's amazing story. I love it. I love it Moose in trouble. Yeah my big problem can came back was because Kennedy just a little older than me and I'm forty eight and he's he's in such great shape. He really has raised the bar for older wrestlers and I'm like do now. I gotTa really start working. We'll get him back in. I'm trying to marry him. Tactic nominal walks in with a tank top.

The impact wrestling is making the move to access TV see Ken Shamrock See Tessa Blanchard see Sammy Cowan see Moose Brian Gage a lot to to be excited. If you're a pro wrestling fan because impact wrestling is back and man they are making major changes in this move to access. TV is a big one and bound for glory their biggest show of the year. Can it's been an I mean. We could talk to you for our. Let me only throw something quick. I know we've been talking. You know mad about Moose but you know I didn't know who he was. When when we first started getting into this I thought he was some punk guy which I still think he's a punk but ah listen you cannot take away from this guy skills. This guy's good so I know and I'm not taking him lightly man done that before and I got my ass kicked so I'm not taking taking him. Lightly in this guy is very talented. He's very athletic and so there's no mandate anybody impact anybody that is in in impact wrestling knows that this guy is no joke. He may not be the best guy in the world but he is very talented and so come from bound for glory. I will be ready also also too. I want to bring up the September twenty first Valor bareknuckle which is just a weak way man. It's GONNA be awesome. It's bare knuckle fighting. I'm I'm launching that as my business fact is I'm really looking forward to this thing moving out September twenty first valor. Bk You can get it on any of the pay per view networks and fight TV streaming on your your phone but I did this for a reason because I truly believe that bareknuckle its own beast and that just like we were talking about earlier. If you're tough guy you've bar. You're bouncing bars or that. You just tough guy. You're you've got your one hundred. No one street fights and you're tough bare. Knuckle is the kind of thing eh pro wrestlers that may fighters boxers are all even nobody has the advantage because it is a street fight and in a street fight. You're not not going to the ground. You're not trying to pull off these submissions in boxing. You don't have anything to protect your hands. You have nothing to be able to block with so it's its own beast man. I'm looking forward to this thing taken taken off and I look forward to grab some wrestlers and getting in there and then throwing down because I've seen some guys that are pretty damn tough in pro wrestling and love to see them get in Eh bare knuckle. Tommy we think I go back to the days of Filo Beddoe Afri- I turn that's awesome. Thank you so much for the time and it's been an absolute pleasure. You're welcome here anytime can't believe ten years that we've been doing this. Show is the first time you've been busted on busted open and it's been an absolute pleasure. Thank you so much. I appreciate both guys. Tommy and I appreciate you guys. Thank you very much if you don't know Sirius.
"ken shamrock" Discussed on Busted Open
"I think it's about the person that's actually doing it. Yeah I mean I know Kurt Angle would say professional wrestling thing was harder to get into coming from what he used to do because it was I I'm here to win. I'm here to give it my all but to win you coming from an ammunition. New Your background you coming in from that world to await. I have to fight for real now. That's a harder thing too you but I mean I know you were bad ass in the in the real world as well so it's not for me my hardest part would be. I need to fight for anger but that's why you're you're a pro in that world like I need to somebody. Try to hurt my friends or you know you're in a bar. You're in a riot something like that. That's the only way I could like get an. I need to be enraged but then also give me like disrespecting you yeah but that's like. I said it's a different different time and you know I know Moose. I don't even need an apology from Moose and I just think some people shouldn't have social media because but hey you're you're gonNA be. You're probably going to be like the first troll hunter. Maybe that's my nickname going in. Can you mentioned about the the worlds of pro wrestling winging. MMA and and how they've been overlapping especially lately the channel that were on fire nation. It's all combat sports boxing we have 'em we have pro wrestling what I've noticed as a fan of pro wrestling and and admittedly I'm I'm not a fan of anime. I'm just a hardcore pro wrestling fan but I have I don't disrespect it and I have no reason to disrespect that world because I think there's a lot of give and take there but it feels like a lot of fans and a lot of journalists from the world automate disrespect pro wrestling. Do you feel the same way I take Thursday competition. people always want to say well MMA is you know those guys are blockheads. You know they don't have any ability to to entertain you know they're just focused go in there and they do this but these wrestlers man. I mean you hear it all the time that guy could really do well. I mean he could kick his ass he wanted to and and just disrespect without even having to do it and then on the flip side of that and then you've got an actual pro wrestlers who kind of do the same thing just even the fans and even on the outside the same kind of thing where they say wrestling's fake and I just like dude. You need a backup on that 'cause I've done both and I've been injured more progressing than I ever was in. The intimate knowles barred wows possible. I'll say well one of his because I was damned. Good at Knowles born may may I go in for one minute and I win but when I went into pro wrestling we had to go in there and we had to put on a show and we had to get thrown in slant well you know two tables Abeles and chairs to the face and sticks and you name it whatever they could bring up trash cans. I mean that's a lot of abuse on your body and it's not just one night a week. Take sometimes it's four times in one week three hundred sixty days if you're on the road working hard like that and I got beat up a whole lot more. You're doing progressing than I ever did. In Gen who is your favorite opponent in professionalism what I mean. There's a lot of dude. I was very very blessed. I got to work with Shawn. Michaels Bret Hart Stone Cold The undertake I can name all of them but I would like I think that at my time in the WWF and the time with the Rock really helped me develop and hymns James also where we both got to develop off cut cut our teeth on one another and really develop characters that were solid in that pro wrestling wrestling era and I'd like to think that me and the rock were at that time when we were working those programs we had put on matches that were just as good take some of the top guys matches and and it was because we were our chemistry was so good together and that you know even we we went into it. I told him I said you know any of course. If you see the chair shot he definitely obliged me. I told him I said Brian selling anything ain't it don't touch and did that with everybody. I just said you know I can't do that and he looked at me so don't worry it was the nineties he's in two thousand. Come on there was no such thing concussions right and it was fake but go figure. Sometimes you need that physicality audie like Tommy was saying for that incentive to really get to the next level when you ring like you said you needed to be angry. He needed to have that kind of state of mind so I'm thinking Ken from what you're saying. There needs to be a little physicality. You had to feel it so you could reactive because that's to me was like I can't. I mean a lot. I've seen how they do doing. Some guys are really good at but man I just couldn't do that and I watched his matches two-man and the stuff they did man. I was like to see that I can get into That kind of stuff is for real and so for me it was when we did the hardcore matches and WWF. I mean I loved it. I mean it was just so intense but it was real. I don't care what anybody says when they started talking to smell roses we promise you why don't you get in there. Do you tell me it's fake when you get. If you get out of there let's get into impact wrestling because we talk a lot about impact wrestling on this show and listen impact wrestling's gone through a lot a lot of changes over a long span. TNA then becoming impact wrestling a lot of management and executive changes but man the product that impact wrestling's been given and for well over a year now I think has been fantastic and with this landscape pro wrestling changes. I think impact wrestling is more than just an option. I think it's it's an if you're a pro wrestling fan. You need to tune in every week and now this move to access TV. I would think you've been a part of the company before but right now now. When you look at impact wrestling you gotta be proud of what the product is right now and the roster of wrestlers that are part of this company yeah no question you know when I that's the reason why I was ribbon membrane cage because that's the company that caught my eye? You know there's all these other ones out there but it just seems like there's there's so many characters so many attitudes so many Prima Donnas veteran some of these other companies that you can't go out and actually travel on the road have have a good time. Put your shows on be able to go home and and you feel like you've even though it was hard work you feel like a that was a good time and I liked like the people I'm working with I just don't feel that at least I don't see that with the other companies and I've been watching out there. It just seems like the guys don't get along with one another like everybody's trying to step on everybody's head and it looked like an impact like everybody was trying to build the program from the top down. Everybody was working together to get a good good product and to me. I think that was the important part for me. Moving in the impact direction was that I wanted to be around people that one were all trying for the same aim goal and that was to put on a good product and you know it's funny. He was in the same room. I was with and I some of the the rascals. Were back there guys I gotta ask you something about your match and I'm explained to him and that's my job as somebody who's done it and then I asked a question and a k you wanna WanNa know how to take somebody down or you want somebody fight advice. There's Ken shamrock and he's like absolutely man. Hey you gotta do this. You have a lock room of men and and women who want to learn and it's also like you know very few attitudes and the respect factor except for stupid Moose but they they want to better themselves and like I always say hey guys. This can be your home. If you WANNA use this place to go somewhere else 'cause cool because guess what there's a million other wrestlers that want your job and use this lie and and I use the example. Lax Lax left impact. Their contract was up. That was a cool. What else could they do. Their move forward go somewhere else. Impact got everything out of them that they possibly could great because now there's other tag teams that it opens up the door for but when you have you know someone like cans experience my experience don cows experienced dealer browns experience helping people all they've. They've all been there and you have people that. WanNa see them. Be there to you know and the Fans WanNa see Ken. SHAMROCK returned to wrestling. That's important important that lineage that history when when I watched him in a Bell Tower and I saw you brought a road warrior animal. I popped I loved it because because it was that connection there was like that's why wrestling fans and they never forget. I saw him come back. Live in Vegas and people gave him a standing ovation. Say thank thank you for coming back. We love you and that embracement with wrestling fans never goes away and that's what I love about. It and we know this to probably more than any other sport. Wrestling fans really embraced the pass and have a passion and a love for the legends so there may be a lot of fans that watch impact wrestling now that no you can but never senior or never were watching you back. You know a decade ago so now they have that opportunity. I think I think newer fans embrace that I do just to go back on. What what Tommy was saying was that I'm remember sitting in that in the locker room when he brought these these these men in these kids but their kids compared to me but you know they they went out and they they were all smiles and they were like happy and we watched the match. We saw the things that they did. Their great great moves all the stuff was really good except they weren't in the right places like and so when he came in and he started teaching him. I just like in my mind I went see. This is why I'm here because it's not if we try to if somebody was trying to do that with some of these other organizations these guys would have flipped them off. So who do you think you are so that's the reason why I chose. Does impact was because everybody's trying to build a quality product that makes sense of your match. What moves at bound for glory. The main event is Brian Brian Cage as you mentioned the impact champion going up against Sami. Callahan and Sammy cowhands A guy. That's a little out there you know he's got an attitude but impact wrestling two thousand eighteen wrestler of the year.
"ken shamrock" Discussed on Busted Open
"XM fight right Nation Channel One fifty six or on demand with the theory of Xm APP. You know somebody that we absolutely love. WHO's joining us here not only in Studio Tommy me but the first time ever year on busted open and hall of Famer. You're right wrestling legend Ken Shamrock Ken. How're are you man.

Tommy Dreamer game but now you look great so no I don't WANNA be busted. Open this. I'll take any education can get from you when it comes to the wrestling and you know a lots to talk about with Ken obviously the move of impact wrestling to access TV and coming up in just about a month you know one of the biggest if not the biggest pay per view for impact wrestling bow for glory where Ken is going to be going up against the move so a lot going on in the world of pro wrestling with you. It's good to have you back well. I appreciate it. I tell you it was a great welcoming. When I was down there impact wrestling we were in Vegas. you know it was really a great welcoming. Oh coming and I just wanted to finish. I really appreciate it man. Thank you and of course for tickets for bound for glory. It's happening Sunday October twentieth in Chicago go to impact wrestling dot com four tickets and like I said it's always one of my favorite shows of the year and to have Ken shamrock back. How about this Brian Cage going up against San Emme Cowan Sammy Callahan. WHO's going to be joining us here. I'm busted open later in the week so a lot going on for bound for glory and impact wrestling is kind of like in a a lot of ways wrestling's best kept secret but I don't think that's going to be the case anymore with the move to access TV. Yeah and you know it's funny. How can got involved. It's really you know I say. It's a old school. Values with new school rules all this really started on Social Media Moose you know Kansas impact wrestling over Ken for his own fight coming up and and his company coming up and then Moose just chimed in and of all people bowl and it's a big pet peeve of mine and everyone wants to make a comment you know there's some haters there some trolls and they wanna make a comment to me. That's like hey you're talking about me to me or to one of my friends and my friends going to go back and set so moose tags like re tweet wheat with comment and you're going to see this and Ken being of all people who you're GonNa say something negative to you know Ken Shamrock. I mean a legend in the fight business. Yes combat sports and then it just kept on morphing where you know. I actually thought it was a joke. I'm seeing the going back and forth and I'm just like is he for real and I mean I'll let Ken tell the story but then just more to and I mean Kudos to impact me like okay. Are you interested in hiding so yeah it was great because it was his Brian Cage Ribbon one another and him being the champion all kind of ribbon him a little bit and we had a back and forth in this Guy China and Moose Chimes. Yeah I don't know who is right and so he starts chiming in saying different things and listen. I I know Tommy Dreamer man and everybody in wrestling respectful he's down when it comes to that hardcore style and then he starts disrespect to human. I'm thinking can man. This dude who this guy is an ask and hope. I can say that just did so. Let's just say whatever you I'm thinking to myself. Man This guy somebody you gotta shut him up and I remember making a call impact and saying hey man you know who is this guy and of course they were having problems with them to eight the same disrespect towards the company towards the owners and I said well. Why don't you let me come down here and put into near say well. We're in LAS VEGAS MONTHS. You come on down on. I said all right. I'll be there so that's how it all started there. I was standing in front of them and you know we were standing this if you correct me. Where was that sports place that we were at Sam's Town Sam's town and Yeah but then I was in a in a a building where he smacked me in the head. Where was that at? I don't remember room so we were standing there and we were doing this thing in the store where we were going to go out and face off going to make the announcement and over to Las Vegas Shop he reaches over and hits me in the head and I go. That's my move. That is my move. How did you so this literally. Everything everything just kind of morphed and now here we are waiting for bound for glory and you know we're not too far away from me being put a beating on him and shutting him up once and for all ask you something because you know like Tommy said no this. I'm I'm talking to legends here Tommy with in pro wrestling you in all combat sports kickboxing axeing. UFC pro wrestling. Do you notice now with social media that people who probably didn't have a voice before feel they have a voice or half the chime in or the use social media in a way to get them over and do you feel that maybe like the newer generation when it comes to pro pro wrestling doesn't have that respect for the legends that came before them. I don't think he's just pro wrestling. I think that's an all sports. The social media thing just started booming German and he gave people a voice and it gave them a voice to be able to say whatever they want to say without any repercussions and that's why we have what we have today. Hey with people getting on their disrespecting. People seem stupid things because there's no instant you know you're going to be held responsible right but in social. I mean that's just not the case like the people who say whatever they want and on they go they all have different handles who they are so it is opens up that door for that wide variety of disrespect and I I've found out long long ago that you know and you have to be involved in social media. It's the only way you can still keep staying in touch with everything that's going on in the world but I also know that you just don't take everything that personal because there's some stuff that comes out you that you decide what did that come from and so you just let it roll off but then when you get an opportunity to actually call somebody out and you know who they are. You know where they're at right and then to be able to have the fans follow that cause very rarely do people get to see a troll on their keyboard warrior on their actually get called out and they get to see something actually done from somebody out talking smack and most times they would be held accountable while this time he's. GonNa be held accountable. You know it's funny. When when I watch anything you have see or forget forget about professional wrestling because I love the fact that we you know we have this show because professional wrestling and people give their opinion school. No one's really ever disrespectful it. It's extremely hard to be in a fight to prepare to fight another person without rage. I mean I I've bounced. I I've gotten into fights lights and in bars and riots and easy w but to pair to fight without hatred rage and just hey this is my job. I have to beat this person and then I I see so many like every Friday night when there's a UFC fight or ballatore fight everyone's like oh well. They should have done this. They should have known that and I'm like if you've never ever been in that situation. How could you say to do that and then you're saying like you would tag a Ken Shamrock of Ken Shamrock Mark. How could you have done that well. I'm fighting for my life like I'm getting punched in my face yeah maybe but like as as a performer it's a lot different from when you know how you or the other guys in your world and and other cool thing we had so you a lot of your friends from the UFC world came to it was like a UFC NFC gala in the bag was awesome It's fun to see that crossover right. I mean you think so long when I started pro wrestling world there was is no path there. I just did it like I. I ran into a situation where I wasn't going to get my contract renewed. we're having problems in the company that wanted me to come back. They want to come come back for less. I couldn't do it. I had family. I had a gym everything to support so we had a discussion saying well. You know I gotta walk away from this but I'll come back once. It's everything get squared away with all the legal issues with the world of mixed martial arts at that time so I went into pro wrestling well. There's no path I mean there's nobody had done that in in and what I had been in so I went there and I did it and to see now the amount of people that are literally going from wrestling into intimate and MMA into wrestling and Here's a fact that I want to clear up because I think it's it's is gone so far that people don't even realize that I was a wrestler first and then I went into. MMA I started long ago under Vince Torelli Mr Wrestling Vince Torelli and I was in Mooresville North Carolina and I was put in work down there I was even on. WWF How sh three three how shows workings Barry Horowitz twice and mega man wants and then I went over to Japan and got to work in Baba's group so I put in some work before I went into mma then I had the opportunity being very successfully may going through Japan into the US and then also going back into pro wrestling so being able to to to have that journey able to pay that path and be able to see how successful restful so many people are becoming from him or from him may into pro wrestling pro wrestling anime and people which which one is harder well I I don't. I don't necessarily think which one is harder..

"ken shamrock" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen
"And if they were to walk across me right now I wouldn't on sale word man because I as we get we get all the week a little bit wiser and we start looking at things the way they really are and I was part of the problem because I went to their room. Oh I kicked in their door and I went after them and of course they were scared to death. The only only way they had a chance of winning was hitting me from behind so do I blamed him for that. No do I blame them for the way the kind of the extra little stuff that they did yeah. I thought it was overboard board but again I was part of that problem so if they want to cross me right now I wouldn't say a word it's older done. That's very that's very objective by you quite frankly quick and if I may ask you a personal question frank your brother Frank. Are Things worked out between you to spend Christmas together. If I may ask or or is that what what are you take it from here. Where are you at Franken the world today listen? I Love Frank Man I do and you cannot deny how have the impact he had on his wake division what he did with Tito something that I wasn't able to do so you can't you can't take away from that and I do love him but I think that you know some of the things as it happened with this this this animal thing I was getting hammered for it. They thought it was a and I said hey it was that was my brother. That wasn't me while you guys hammer and on me. Oh by the way eight will make you guys any different than my brother. the way that you're going after him nature you the same as him and I think he took that Kinda wrong that was kind of I was trying to protect him. It came out probably the wrong way but they are. They were going after him the way the because he left the dog tied up in the back of the truck for five days or something and so these guys were calling the names and they were abusing him and I said Oh my goodness how how are you guys any different than what he did to that dog. You're abusing another human being because has he abused a dog. What makes you any different? I mean you're supposed to look at things and try to be objective about it and try to help somebody understand they did wrong and that's kind of what I was trying to do but I think he got angry. Because I kinda threw him under the bus he said but I didn't see it that way. I saw aw was me trying to protect what I built an my family and my kids from taking a thrashing from the media because they were coming after me and I just set the record straight straight yeah that was frank by the way on frank he was so good in the sports to your point and what he did for the division the match with Tito the world championships just but he did walk out on top something that's very rare and in fairness he had plenty of laughed. He just walked. Does he ever look at that. Do you think you know what I wish. I would have done a couple more. I wish I would have stuck around. I wish come as the sports started to boom. This even any regrets about walking away on top I think so because I think that he has some major issues with the lower back. You know you saw the tremendous ability add with rolling catching submissions the ability that he had but that took a toll on his lower back by the way he fought and so I think that he he walked out at the right time unlike some of us who constantly think we can overcome com os injuries there but I think he did it at the right time all right awesome well hey can. I know you're being Vegas on the thirteenth. I know you've got this by the way moves. There's there's a little bit mouthy. Even for my liking I look forward to shut him up and then of course on the twenty-third with bare knuckle. Let's catch up after that brother. Thank you you too. Can you look great great CPAP brother all right guys Ken shamrock always interesting to talk to him and you WanNa talk about a guy who has been there from the beginning that knows everybody who did everything got into the ring with most of 'em trained with all of them. I mean you talk about six degrees of separation. Ken shamrock has one degree of separation from any fighter ever and he's a great guy to catch up with the bare knuckle thing very cool read that he was getting into promoting that I did not know so could you was in that tournament drew mighty mouse right out of the gate eight not an easy draw for either one of those guys. Let's make sure we support that coming up on the twenty-third gamers listen up it's time to make some mayhem shoot.
An Interview with UFC Hall of Fame Fighter: Ken Shamrock
"He's the godfather mixed martial arts. He's in the u._f._c. hall of fame. He's a w._w._e. Superstar tag team champion founder of the lion's den but most impressive is phenomenal work with troubled youth and young adults. He's a phenomenal human being phenomenal athlete. Please welcome ken. Shamrock can't ken how is life today which beautiful man of above ground and rubbing lines man there is so much to your life. I didn't know where to start start where to stop so i think i've got a really good interview for you and i hope that is a good thing for you. I have to say man so researching researching your life life. One of the most impressive things that i saw was your cat talk man. He just blew me away right so i feel like of all your achievements and there are so so many the fact that you lived past the age of ten might be your biggest achievement that you've ever had i mean it's amazing that you're still here with us. There's no question <hes> it was definitely touching. Goal a lot of times there were times where i was drug across the cement because my <hes> <hes> biological mother was running from an attacker <hes> so there was a lot of things i remember when i was younger that you know could have turned got a whole lot different yemen and the way that you see kids in your approach that ted talk it kind of blew me away because i see a lot of ted talks and i always feel like some of them are very starchy. They're very kind of robotic. I feel like yours was one of the very few that came from the heart yeah because i think a lot of times when those ted talks happen. It's a lot of guys that are involved science or or or or something that doesn't have that ah emotional touch to it 'cause it's a business it's more of it doesn't have to be but most obits a lot of business and science yeah and i completely i agree with that and i know you've been down this road a million times. You've been asa million times. If it's a problem i can we can move past it but for those listening winging for those very few that don't know your life story early on just talk about your childhood very briefly. I know you've been down this road before and i i hate to ask you this but for those who who are not familiar with it.

We're probably about five years old. This time and we were left home a lot. We were didn't have a lot of food so we would still food trash can that we're next door neighbors or or we we were still broken toys that were thrown away but we also learn how to fight at a young age because at the time we were five six seven there was constant war <hes> with racial tension and things that where we lived at so we were always fighting <hes> and it wasn't the same as what people think it is when you talk about kids that young fighting. There's you know or even adults and teenagers. They could care less the age they still would just kick in the head and move on so it was it was rough but we moved to napa california. When i was about nine eight years old eight nine years old <hes> went down there. It was all predominantly white. I didn't fit in there because the way i talked way acted so i was constantly fighting. There got stab <hes> <hes> when i was ten years old it was there for a little while they got wrong into the wrong. Group of people started fighting along got stabbed strong robbery ended up in juvenile. <music> hall woke up in the hospital with handcuffs on from that day forward. I became awarded the court that means that <hes> the judge and the probation officer became my parents put me into placement. I went to several placements ran away from those placements. <hes> ended up in chaumont boys home and that's where i really learned. You know how to direct my anger into something positive. He's he <hes> he put me into sports like football and wrestling be able because i was really angry so he helped me direct that anger into something positive of course. I started feeling good about myself. Because i was relevant i was taking that anger and i put it out the football field wrestling mat and i was getting praised for it so all of a sudden now i became popular rose dating cheerleaders and all of a sudden my life had changed and then <hes> i broke broke my neck by senior year. After all that stuff i went through and i thought things were going well. It's gonna get a scholarship in college and it it ended that day.

I decided to do something about it. Started chaining working out with played linebacker in college all american <hes> and they had a chance to go to pro wrestling pro wrestling ended up in japan <hes> japan. I ended up in pancras so i started doing some fighting over pancras. <hes> started doing well. It became a world champion. U._f._c. came around jumped in the u._s. A year later i'm world champion in japan japan and the u._f._c. yeah. That's pretty amazing because i don't think i could have said that in an hour but i have to say this might be the understatement into the year but is it safe to say that bob shamrock is an amazing human being he s he helped over three hundred boys and a lot of it had in a lot of had to do with it that he wasn't just housing them he he would help them direct their anger into stuff that they loved doing whether it seeing our music whatever was josh he helped them direct that anger and they love doing and i gotta say it. Would it be a little all over the board today. I definitely am going to get into valor became which i am so psyched about but i want to kind of set the stage here so one of the things are one of the many things i really like about you can is that you you you represent courage and sportsmanship in class and i feel like when i see the or even sometimes it w._w._f. I see things whether it's the internet or i see things whatever i don't know man like it's just too awfully cringe-worthy. When you see the amount of killing you're all about kids which i absolutely really love along with what you've done in your life but when i see some of these guys were supposed to be doing the right thing supposed to be setting the stage in the example for these kids man. Some of the stuff is cringe-worthy and i'm not going to get into names that three people under the bus but what i love about being you live what you said like you were. You're excuse the expression bullshit yeah. I like to think that i'm not perfect. Obviously i've had my issue but i always try to <hes> try to do the right thing you know and so <hes> that's something that my father had taught me you know <hes> got wonderful wife who keeps me grounded because sometimes with the business that i'm in you can get a big head so i got a great wife next to me. That keeps me grounded. What did i got a good family and <hes> i'm really blessed in that sense but at the same time you wanna be able to do more. I feel like the more popular it could become the more money that i can make the more that i can help. Somebody fulfill their dreams like or decay. I am so excited because because i get to be able to go back to what i fell in love with but to be able to help other firefighters be able to achieve their dreams when when i was going to get to valerie came one second but i have to say man the one thing about valor b. k. and i'll say this right now when i i said okay okay bare knuckle boxing boxy. I'm like oh boy. I'm a little concerned but when i did my research i heard some of your interviews. Maybe this is a bad analogy but maybe you can inform me on this. I i almost like rugby compared to the n._f._l. Right in the n._f._l. They were pads. They wear in the concussion rate. The after effects are awful but you look at the australian in rugby league's man. It's like those stats are way down. I don't know if that's comparable to a lot of valor bouquets about but i it seems somewhat similar right. It's a very pure form. Well let me tell you this. They don't wear helmets right. They got one that. I have faced so they don't they don't <music>. Hey they're not gonna hit you hard with their head. They still with the head right but they don't come leading with going hard so yeah similar because with fighting the idea is how many times you get punched in the head hard you get. I mean somebody gets up cases but the majority of the punch isn't about how hard you get hit. It's about how many times as you get hit right. It's so with bare knuckle man. The punches are effective. It's a fast paced fight. There's only three rounds and so you're minimizing the amount of damage a._m. Is just going to happen to your brain. May not damage to your skin or your nose and your jaw will minimize damage to you're not going to say can i. I was watching a heavyweight fight on fox and i had the boxer on. He was a really class act good guy but i think they set a record for punches thrown as a heavyweight match. It was an unorthodox of twelve hundred like there's no way that that doesn't have a side effect moving forward. That's a lot of punches to absorb over it. You know an hour our period or an hour and a half right and listen. They praised them for that all what a tremendous round h over twelve hundred over twelve hundred reproaches. You're like concern as yes. Yes yes so so. I'm coming back this. I so psyched about this about this new the bare knuckle boxing. We've been talking about it like crazy on the podcast. I wanna talk about vince torelli so you had to try out or was it dark match. I should say an eighty nine with barry horowitz. Why did the w._w._f. Sign you then like you're clearly talented. You're clearly have the ability why wasn't this. Let's get this guy going right now well if they would've been. I would've probably been a lifer and what have been <hes>. You no definitely done very well because i did. I did have the skills and i had the talent <hes> but for whatever reason i i don't know i thought in those guys they could see talent all that clearly. When i worked with barry horowitz they could see i a- talent even though i was only a year only had a year of experience and i'm sure they clearly could see that there was talent there for whatever reason they never picked me off.

"ken shamrock" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"In entertainment, never bring out a politician. I was really shocked by that because you didn't do that a lot and it feels like you've always tried to avoid it. But yet right here, I don't know if it was something Vince just wanted to do as a thank you or he was trying to curry favor. I don't know what do you make this decision to strike a politician out there? It was good for her and if it was good for her than it was good for us and he felt that the positive is positives outweighed the negatives. Of course. I mean, they got a huge payday that day. Do you think that this is something she requested or Vince wanting a bins Sasser she wanted to do it. She did. Oh, there you go. Were you? Did you try to talk them out of it or put it on the pre show or anything with them and why bother this being on the paper? You said of the pre show. It was a message. It was a message to all those states out there that were still collecting their taxes, then we're going to win. We're gonna get you one way or another. So why not just on just gave us what we want. We'll make your world champion and put you over. Can I well your world champion year? We're champion your world champion. I'm gonna post pictures that built. I think you'll get kick out of it. I mean, it's pretty rare to have a world title signed by Vincent win. At least I think. Ken shamrock is in a match for the European title with David with Samantha course. Davey boy is promoted going into this match as defending that against Shawn Michaels at one night only which to me, sort of gives away the book and finish either way though bulldog retains by d. q., the mass mascots star. In three quarters. Of course, there's dog food shamrock going berserk. He's choking out. Davey boy officials are trying to break it up. He gives Pat Patterson and Brisco and a couple of refs belly to belly suplexes. He's overlook Rover here. What did you think of the match and the shenanigans afterwards? Well, okay. Couple of things go back and watch. Ken shamrock walk to the rain and there's where you will see what I'm talking about is how the road warriors used to walk to the ring and Ken shamrock walk into the ring. If it was may standing in the ring and I can't run, I would find a way to run away as fast as. Possibly. Could. He looked like a maniac coming to the ring to rip somebody's head off. So it was intense man. It was exactly you know what what it was meant to be was a avenue to show shamrocks intensity thought that the match was slow. It was pretty damn plotting and slow, but the finish and the aftermath, it accomplished what we were looking to accomplish that was to get Ken Ken shamrock over as a beserk wild man. Well worked because he was over like crazy here. We talked about this a little bit in our bulldog episode, but a match that will probably never talk about again, lows Perico was and the d. away had a brawl and not a very pretty one. The bikes didn't even get a big pop here, and I thought that would have been the norm, but it was not gets half a star. These guys have been building. This is sort of gang warfare thing with the, you know, d and the delay in Los Parikh was of course Ahmed Johnson and all these guys are here for this as well. Chat me up..

"Dr prescription that's let's talk about ken shamrock meeting rocky bobby fourteen minutes nine seconds shamrock becomes king of the ring tournament winner and of course hunters townsley is they're doing ringside commentary what did you think of his commentary what did you think of the match and this is really a trilogy because these guys had three matches in ninety eight on pay per view the rumble wrestlemainia and now this one of the three matches which one did you prefer god i can't pick one but these guys rock and shamrock they enjoyed working with each other and is little chemistry is tag match had before you had chemistry with rock in shamrock but for me you know you asked about hunters commentary i thought is drizzling shits hated hundred on commentary because it was all that smart ass shit is sounded like a sixteen year old teenager with all of his one liners and cute little things that they had to get in and it took away from the match in it just it just took away from it and they're trying to do stuff with rock and hundred and get all that shit but there's a way to get your talent over and get the guys in the ring over get yourself over without barry in people with the smart ass shit all the time into me it was just way too much i can't believe you said something negative also negative shit i'm proud of you if i can get you to do that on the network sometime asked me the question on the network oh my god it's up to me to do everything i forget damn right so the match gets three and a quarter stars doug the match though something about shamrock and rock that just clicked for me how did these guys enjoy working with each other they loved working with each other and that's why it showed that's why you enjoyed it in the enjoyment it because you get lost in it and it felt real in when they got out there everything that shamrock did the one thing i always loved about guys like ken shamrock and kurt angle was yes they had their finished same thing they went to but they always went into in a unique in different way so you always something new from him and that's that's what you got here and it was great coming out party for ken shamrock to try and do something with him get him over i do wanna point out here that chamran becomes the ring and it looks like he's going to be poised for big things because in this era that will certainly you know what was next you saw hunter level up you saw austin level up you saw oh and brat i mean everybody one king of the ring goes on the big things for the most part and he eventually wins the intercontinental title but then he joins the corporation feels like he never really gets to a regular main event spot in hindsight and i've asked you this before but we've watched more stuff recently who changed your opinion on camera do you think that shamrock was a missed opportunity to be in the main events i think that what happened with ken shamrock is timing that if he had been any other time with not so many top guys look at look at the level of top talent we had there's only so many people that can be in that top spot in had kenny come in a little bit prior to or little bit after it might have been different but in that time frame that can came in that was as far as he was going rise let's talk about while we're here at feels like we have been building this moment where over an hour into the show the mash that changed everything the undertaker gets a win over mankind officially goes about sixteen minutes this helena sale maj i don't know i mean there's no way for us to really just talk about.
