In an interview with Not In The Hall of
Fame
, Ken Shamrock revealed that he thinks he deserves to
eventually go into the WWE Hall of Fame for what he contributed to the product
during his time there. Here are highlights:

On if WWE has properly acknowledged his MMA influence on their
product:
“I don’t know if I can really speak to that. I do feel that I
definitely deserve to be in their Hall of Fame based on the things that I did
while I was there, being able to change that sport along with other people. I
feel I earned that right based on what I was able to do there in a small amount
of time. I’m not sure that I can stand here and boast about that. The fans are
the ones that really tell the tale and I think they speak very loudly about
where I stand in pro wrestling. I don’t think that there are too many people who
would tell you that I don’t deserve to be there. Obviously, a lot of times the
fans aren’t listened to, or their opinions are overlooked a lot. Today’s
promoters just push them aside and don’t listen to what they want and they want
fans to ‘shut up, sit down and enjoy the show’, because we are going to do
whatever we want to do, like it or not, because you are going to come to the
show. I hear it all the time in the WWE. I hear about how fans would like to see
certain wrestlers, and obviously you can’t give them everything they want, but
you at least have to listen to them and I believe they are being completely
ignored. I’ve always said that I think the fans are most important that you have
when it comes to the entertainment industry. They are the ones that matter most
and they should be heard.”

On what he’d change in WWE and UFC: “I would. In the WWE,
I would push for them being to able have an outlet for the wrestlers for them to
vent their frustrations, a personnel department where they could talk one on one
and talk about what is going on in their lives. There’s nothing there right now.
There are guys who are struggling in life and in certain situations and there is
nowhere for them to turn. That is what I would definitely implement there. For
the UFC, the definite thing that I would improve there the most is the fighter
pay. Obviously they (the UFC) have their stance on it, but I would implement an
opportunity for these guys to negotiate their terms and their ways to move
forward in MMA. There is definitely a personnel problem in those companies,
there needs to place for guys to go and vent about on the job frustrations; a
place where they go and speak their mind.”

On if he has any projects he wants the fans to know about:
“I definitely do. I have a website, www.kenshamrock.com, which has all my social
media sites on there, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, all of that. I stay
connected with my fans as much as I can, as they were the ones that really drove
me to be successful. I really wanted to make sure that when I was in the ring
that they were entertained and was happy with what I was doing in the ring. They
really did help me to become successful, so I always like to stay connected to
my fans, and I can do so through Social Media. So go on Kenshamrock.com, and be
a part of the family and you can see what am I doing, or what appearances and
podcasts that I am doing, or book me for whatever event that you may be doing.
Also too, I do a lot of ministry work and with troubled youth and will always be
available to speak to young people. Other than that, you know, I’m just living
life large and thank you so much for allowing me to speak to you.”
