Former UFC and WWE superstar Ken Shamrock continues to prove that age is just a number as he recently showed off his amazing physique.
The 58-year-old posted a shirtless picture of himself to social media that impressed fans who were surprised to see he is still ripped to shreds despite officially retiring in 2019.
“Another Week, Another Chance to be Amazing. Keep on pushing with your goals. When it gets hard just remember that’s the point. There is no meaning to what you are trying to achieve if you don’t put in the work,” Shamrock wrote alongside the post on Instagram.
You could argue that Shamrock was the first major name to crossover from MMA into pro wrestling and he’d venture back, too.
Shamrock fought at UFC 1 back in 1993 and by the time he reached WWE in the late 1990s, he had a record of 23 wins, two draws and just five losses.
As ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Man’, Shamrock brought MMA into WWE, and many would cite him as the blueprint moving forward. His last UFC appearance came in 2006, but he fought in Bellator ten years later and fought in IMPACT Wrestling as recently as January 2021.
The fight legend revealed last year that he owned ‘The Rock’ nickname before professional wrestler turned Hollywood movie star Dwayne Johnson took it on.
“Funny story is that The Rock, he was known as Rocky. [They] had to have my permission to use the name The Rock because I owned Ken ‘The Rock’ Shamrock,” Shamrock claimed during an appearance onCasual Conversations with The Wrestling Classic.
Shamrock also revealed that he never made any money from The Rock name and he was just happy to see it become synonymous with professional wrestling
“Me and Rocky, we talked about it one time. He didn’t even know,” he added.
“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.”
