I’m a former WWE star who was ‘the world’s most dangerous man’ – I went on to be 50 Cent’s bodyguard


BROCK LESNAR and Ronda Rousey are the two biggest names to enjoy championship success in both UFC and wrestling.

However, before Dana White turned UFC into the biggest MMA promotion on the planet, one of its early stars also successfully made the crossover into WWE.

And not only was he nicknamed “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” – he also protected one of the planet’s biggest musicians in real life.

Ken Shamrock, now aged 59, headlined over 15 main events and co-main events in the UFC and Pride FC as well as setting numerous MMA pay-per-view records.

His place in the UFC Hall of Fame is already assured, but he also had plenty of joy in the 1990s inside the wrestling ring.

Shamrock debuted for Vince McMahon’s company in 1997 and enjoyed rivalries with legends such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Triple H.

He was the King of the Ring winner in 1998 and also held both the Intercontinental and World Tag Team titles prior to leaving WWE in late 1999.

Having left due to issues with creative for his character and becoming tired of the travel schedule, he then continued to foray back and forth in numerous roles with wrestling and MMA.

However, there was no doubting that he is legitimately one of the toughest guys to ever climb between the ropes, and that did not go unnoticed by 50 Cent.

Back in 2014, Shamrock was spotted as one of the iconic rapper’s bodyguards and has gone on record to state how much he enjoyed that job.

He spent a stint working for a security firm that was employed by 50 Cent, and he tweeted that it had been a “pleasure” working with the star and added: “By far one of the classiest gents I have ever worked with.”

These days he is a regular guest on podcasts, and after a brief foray in Bellator, he announced in July 2019 on Facebook that he has “no plans to fight again”.
