Ken Shamrock was with the WWE from 1997 to 1999, before moving on to work with other wrestling and mixed martial arts companies. A new report reveals that he and the company have inked a new deal.
Ken Shamrock Is Once Again Working With The WWE
Shamrock has had a ton of success working with the UFC as an MMA fighter. He also did some great things while on Impact Wrestling (then TNA) during his 2002 and 2004 stints.
Still, it looks like he’s collaborated with the WWE on a new deal. This time around, he’ll be partnering up with the company to sell his merchandise.
During his time with the wrestling organization, Shamrock was a Tag Team Champion (with the Big Boss Man), held the Intercontinental Championship, and was also the 1998 King of the Ring. His accolades from Impact include an NWA World Heavyweight Championship reign.
In fact, “The Rock” Dwyane Johnson also inducted him into Impact Wrestling’s Hall of Fame in 2020. Reports have revealed that Ken has put out feelers to the WWE in the past to work with them.
In 2018, his hopes were for a WWE return, but that never came to fruition. WWE’s Shop on their website recently released a number of his t-shirts for sale.

This certainly indicates that the two sides have inked a new agreement. Likely a Legends deal has been signed, although no details have been released on this.
Ken had some incredible matches during his tenure with the WWE. Some of them occurred with the Rock, as well as a Lion’s Den bout with the late and great Owen Hart during the 1998 SummerSlam event.
Sadly, fans haven’t seen Shamrock on WWE television since he left the company in 1999. However, perhaps that will all change with this new deal.
