Could Hall of Fame Induction Be Next

Has Ken Shamrock signed a new deal with WWE? There's speculation that the UFC great-turned-WWF Superstar has signed a new deal with the company following the release of new Ken Shamrock merchandise at WWE Shop.

PWInsider's Mike Johnson is reporting:

WWE has released several Ken Shamrock t-shirts for sale, signaling that the company and Shamrock have come to terms on some sort of deal, possibly a Legends agreement.

Shamrock had a short but successful run in the WWF, competing there from 1997 to 1999. "The World's Most Dangerous Man's" role as special referee for WrestleMania 13's submission match between Bret "The Hitman" Hart and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin put him in the spotlight early on in his WWF career. From there, Shamrock would capture the Intercontinental Championship, the 1998 King of the Ring Tournament, and the WWF Tag Team Championship.

Shamrock also competed in NWA-TNA Wrestling, becoming NWA World Heavyweight Champion during the promotion's debut. Shamrock entered the TNA Hall of Fame in 2020.

Could a WWE Hall of Fame induction be next? Last year, the WWE scaled back the number of wrestlers it inducted. If it follows this pattern in 2024, there will only be a handful of spots open. Nonetheless, a Ken Shamrock induction makes sense as Shamrock helped bridge the gap between MMA and pro wrestling.

Do you think Ken Shamrock deserves to go into the WWE Hall of Fame and if so, could it happen in 2024?
