Former WWE Superstar Claims He Owned ‘The Rock’ Moniker

Ken Shamrock is a legend in the world of pro wrestling. Shamrock spent two years in WWE between 1997 and 1999, after he worked in Japan and also fought in the UFC, making him one of the most legitimate pro wrestlers on the planet.



While speaking on Casual Conversations with The Classic, Shamrock made an interesting claim. Shamrock said that he was called Ken “The Rock” Shamrock in UFC and that required his approval.

Shamrock claimed that he owned ‘The Rock’ moniker and didn’t like the fact Dwayne Johnson came around and started using it, thinking there wasn’t an issue.

“You know what man? The Rock came up and started using it. Nobody even knew the issue at all. I didn’t because I was never kind of — I never liked that, right? Just like when they came up with the dolls that had the lion skin on it with the shorts on it, I owned that. They never asked me to do that, they didn’t ask to do that so therefore I own that, so I could’ve gotten all that too but you know what? I was fine with where I was at. It didn’t matter. So, and me and Rocky, we talked about it one time. He didn’t even know. He’s like, ‘Really!?’ I said, ‘Yeah. Don’t worry about it. No big deal.’ It’s like, ‘I’m not gonna do anything for that’ so it’s like, I’m known as The World’s Most Dangerous Man now.”
