Ken Shamrock (born February 11, 1964) is an American professional wrestler.

Background

Pre-WrestleMania

Off wrestling appearances

Shamrock serves as a special guest referee for a submission match between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13. At the end of the match, Bret applies a sharpshooter on a bleeding Austin, rendering him unconscious, therefore Shamrock would call out the match and award Bret Hart the victory, but Hart continued to attack Austin which led to a double-turn as the fans turned on Hart and began cheering for Austin. Shamrock suplexed Hart off of Austin and physically challenged him to a fight. Hart declined to fight Shamrock and left the ring to a chorus of boos.
