Ken Shamrock Says Mark Henry Rib Led To Heat With Triple H; Talks TNA, Kurt Angle, Dana White

Ken Shamrock was recently interviewed by WGD Weekly with Steve and the Scum. The UFC Hall of Famer and former Intercontinental Champion spoke candidly on a variety of topics involving his recent talks of a comeback to professional wrestling and his social media war with UFC head honcho, Dana White. You can listen to the full interview in the video above, they sent us these highlights:

Why he feels he has "heat" with Triple H: "I'd like to clarify that. There was a guy named Mark Henry, a strong man. He was in the locker room and there were a few guys involved. Hunter was one of them that put s--t in his sandwich and I told him. So, I think Hunter didn't like me for that and I think Hunter didn't like me for the fact that when I first came in Vince put me over on him. I was truly understanding that I was the new guy coming in and I hadn't put in my dues and I was getting a push, but I was doing what I was asked to do. I think Hunter had a real hard time dealing with that, especially with me being a real bad ass otherwise and there's nothing he could do about it. Then opening my mouth to protect another human being, I think there is ribbing and there is having fun and then there is things where you cross over the line, and so I said something."

Why he feels he has been "blackballed" by WWE: "I had put out my feelers, I had actually talked to Shane McMahon, he put a call in. I thought I had a pretty intricate part in changing the face of wrestling when I was able to ref the match with Bret Hart and Stone Cold, it changed the face of wrestling. I was in all the Pay Per Views and all the house shows, and I thought I made a pretty good impact and helped change pro wrestling, not by myself, but definitely I was a part of it in the Attitude Era. There is no recognition towards me or about me and I'm kind of disappointed."

If allowed to return to WWE, working with Triple H: "When it comes to Hunter, I would love to get in the ring with him and show him what it's like... help him understand that there is a lot of people in this world that have a lot of natural ability and natural talent and just because you don't like them doesn't mean it isn't so... I would love to get in the ring with him and show him exactly who I am and what I'm about."

Working with Brock Lesnar: "If I get in the ring with Brock Lesnar, obviously I think everybody understands, I came from the bare knuckle days, from the NHB days, not MMA where its watered down. I come from the hardcore days, where you fight four times in one night, bare knuckle, no rules, no time limit. If I get in the ring with Brock Lesnar, I will show him exactly who I am and why I've been the first champion in MMA,a true bad ass."

If there is money to be made in a WWE return: "Only if WWE... being Hunter, only if these guys would open their eyes and stop being prima donnas and stop flipping their hair back, oh, he cut his off, he can't flip it back any more... stop looking in the mirror all the time, trying to make sure their makeup is on straight and start bringing in some guys like myself who don't worry about what they look like, they only worry about what they look like when they are beating on somebody."

Reaching out to TNA and Jeff Jarrett or Dixie Carter: "I haven't reached out to Jeff, I know Jeff had reached out and asked if I needed help with my Twitter and trying to get it verified."
