Vince McMahon was said to be “freaked out” after last week’s “Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3” UFC special on SpikeTV drew a 3.1 overall rating and a 4.3 for the final quarter hour featuring the actual Ortiz vs. Shamrock fight. Vince went as far as to tell his writers to start coming up for ideas for Shamrock if they brought him in to WWE.
Supoosedly Paul Heyman had to explain to Vince that the UFC special’s huge rating wasn’t drawn just by Ken Shamrock, but that it was the whole Ortiz vs. Shamrock rivalry dating back years.
As of now, there’s no word on whether the two sides are talking yet but WWE, namely Vince McMahon, is interested in the 42 year old “World’s Most Dangerous Man”. Shamrock is a former WWE Intercontinental Champion who worked with the company during the Attitude era, and was the first NWA World Heavyweight Champion under the TNA banner.
