Ken Shamrock

Kenneth Wayne Shamrock is an American semi-retired mixed martial artist and professional wrestler. A UFC Hall of Fame member, Shamrock is widely regarded as one of the biggest stars in the history of MMA, as well as an icon and pioneer of the sport. In WWE Shamrock was named "The World's Most Dangerous Man".

Shamrock became known early on in the UFC for his rivalry with Royce Gracie. After fighting to a draw with Gracie in the inaugural UFC 'Superfight', he became the first UFC Superfight Champion when he defeated Dan Severn at UFC 6. During his reign as the UFC Superfight Champion, he was widely considered the #1 mixed martial

artist in the world.

In addition to his mixed martial arts career, Shamrock enjoyed considerable success in professional wrestling, particularly during his tenure with the World Wrestling Federation. There, he is a one-time Intercontinental Champion, a one-time World Tag Team Champion and the 1998 King of the Ring. Shamrock also wrestled for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where he is a one-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion and a 2002 Gauntlet for the Gold winner.


He headlined multiple pay-per-view events in both promotions, including 1997's D-Generation X: In Your House, where he challenged for the WWF Championship. WWE has credited Shamrock with popularizing the ankle lock submission hold.
