Ken Shamrock Criticizes Triple H For Having A Huge Ego, Feels He Doesn't Want Him Back In WWE
"That's not the way Vince McMahon would do it. Vince McMahon would have already done it and he would not have to listen to what everybody is telling him to do, he would have already know what to do because he has his ear to the ground and he's listening and watching to what everything is going on around him in the world, what people are looking at, what people are following, what peoples trends are and he would move the company in that direction before the fans start chanting: 'Hey! We need more aggressiveness, we need guys to step up, we need the guys to start fighting, we need blood, etc.' He's behind the eight ball. How hard is it when you're sitting at that position and you get enough people to scream and yell at you when you need to start making those changes. That's not going to work. We need someone that's going to watch everything that's going on in the world and move that company in that direction knowing that this is what the people are looking for and that's not what's happening. It's like you have to be instructed by what the fans are screaming for and you need to pay attention before you give the fans what they want before they know they want it."
Relationship with Vince McMahon: "Obviously, I don't know how he feels about me. I know we had our arguments but he has had his arguments with everybody that was with the WWF that was on the big stage with him. I don't hold any personal grudges with him. I think Vince also puts up and he doesn't just run his mouth. He is a genuinely tough guy and if he had to, he would stand his ground. I respect Vince McMahon for everything that he is but on the other hand with Triple H, it's the opposite. I think he runs his mouth all the time and not necessarily in the public's eye because they don't get to see that part of it but he does behind the scenes and he can't back it up.
"He followed the game plan and he got where he needed to be. He is where he's at and there is no doubt that I'm not taking anything away from Triple H, he got to where he is because he's a great talent. He got to the WWE because he is good at what he does, no question. Not taking anything away from this guy but to be in the position that he is in right now and being able to run something as big as the WWE, I don't think he is ready for that yet. It's too soon to be throwing yourself in there like your Vince McMahon."
Today's MMA guys in pro wrestling: "It's fortunate for me because when I got there (WWE), I was one of their top guys. I was blessed in that sense where I can understand the difference whereas a lot of these guys that are just coming in, the first couple years are going to be an education. You got to understand that these pro wrestlers when they come in, you really need to check your attitude at the door. You have to bring it in because that's who you are but you got to keep it out of the locker room and out of your work. It's hard to do because you have to bring that attitude and person that you are to the people that you know as. In the ring and those guys across from you got to know that you are not going to kill them. It's a hard adjustment and it's not an easy one to do and in time, you're going to see a little bit more of a cross over, I think people will get more of an understanding of how that business works and its ok to have an attitude but you have to make sure when you're in the locker room, everybody knows who you are and what your there for."
