Shamrock set for Impact HOF, WWE grants footage for video package


The main event angle on last night's Impact included the announcement that Ken Shamrock is the newest member of the promotion's Hall of Fame.

It was hyped that last night's show would feature a "career announcement" from Shamrock. Josh Mathews revealed that Shamrock will join Impact Wrestling's Hall of Fame at Bound for Glory later this year.

A video package then played, with it including some footage from Shamrock's WWE career. It highlighted Shamrock being a former WWF Intercontinental Champion, Tag Team Champion, and submitting The Rock to win the 1998 King of the Ring. The footage said courtesy of WWE on it, and Impact also thanked WWE for it:

WWE has used footage from Impact in a similar fashion previously. Impact's RVD also appeared on Raw Reunion last July.

The Shamrock segment led to the video being interrupted by the ICU hacker that Impact had been teasing. It was revealed to be Sami Callihan, with Callihan throwing a fireball into Shamrock's face.

Shamrock, who won the NWA World title on the first-ever TNA show, returned to the promotion last year.
