IMPACT Bound For Glory Results (10/24/20)

IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Fame Induction of Ken Shamrock

During the BFG pre-show, we get a special video from The Rock who is inducting Ken Shamrock into the IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame. He talks about how he got his first start as The Rock against Shamrock. He said Ken at the time had the pull to turn down working a program with Dwyane at the time (and people did do that), but Shamrock wasn’t one of them. He calls him a pillar of The Attitude Era and congratulates him on the induction.

Matt Striker introduces Shamrock who says he is stuttering for words. He said it is a long journey and there’s a lot of people who took him on this trip. He remembers taking bumps for the first time with Nelson Royal and he wants to thank the late wrestler for that. He thanks Vince McMahon during that time for the opportunity. He remembers Bret Hart told him one time to “just be him.” He thanks Bret for that. He also thanks The Rock for those memorable matches and his speech. He thanks his family. He talks about his time away from home and says how much he loves Tanya. He thanks the fans. Without the fans he couldn’t do it without them. He thanks them and “God bless!”
