Ken Shamrock on Steve Austin: It was an honor for him to wrestle me in this stage

Ken Shamrock remembered the match against Steve Austin 24 years ago. Shamrock has fond memories of that match and respect for Steve Austin. Both are top wrestlers, and that match was one of the best. “I thought he [Steve Austin] felt real comfortable with me.

I felt like he was already in a position at that point where his role was, he was the guy, period. And me going in there [RAW main event match against Austin in 1998], obviously he had a tremendous amount of respect for me.

And I think in his own mind it was like, it was an honor for him to wrestle me in this stage because of who I was. It was a feather in his cap per se”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com

Respect

They can be a lesson to other wrestlers that respect should be the main thing when entering the ring.

“So, when we went in there and did that, we had a tremendous amount of respect for each other. And I had a tremendous amount of respect for him on what he was able to do in pro wrestling. So for me to be in there with him, I was like, ‘okay, this is awesome.

This is great.’ But I think in reverse it was the same with him being in there with me being the original World’s Most Dangerous Man and legitimate World’s Most Dangerous Man being able to work with me”.

Shamrock also talked about leaving WWE in an interview with Vlad TV. He had good reasons for that. “I believe my last match was Jericho. I believe, could be wrong, but I feel like that was the last one. I already felt like I was being clumped into groups, and that I was just kind of a side thing now.

Like, whatever storyline was over here, we would just do. It didn’t make any sense. It just didn’t feel like they knew what to do with me from that point. It just felt like I was just there”.
