Ken Shamrock Doesn’t Get Why WWE Doesn’t Want Him Back, Talks CM Punk’s UFC Debut

November 22, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

– Ken Shamrock appeared on Wrestledelphia Radio and discussed why he probably won’t appear at the Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant and more. Highlights are below:

On CM Punk entering the UFC: “I thought [CM Punk] took more of a risk than myself, Brock [Lesnar], or anybody else. His background isn’t in wrestling, as far as amateur. His background isn’t in mixed martial arts. His background is just in pro wrestling. So for him to go from pro wrestling, which he was a superstar in, into the MMA world – where he didn’t have any kind of background with submissions or grappling – and going into [UFC], that was a big risk…I thought he did a great job and applaud him for what he did.”

On a possible WWE return at the Royal Rumble: “I doubt it. I’ve been saying this for years. I’m not understanding that with everybody that I’ve seen come back – Kurt Angle, The Rock – how isn’t Ken Shamrock there? If anybody makes sense in coming back and doing something with those guys coming back, there is no other better person than myself.”
