Finally, The Rock has come to IMPACT.
The Rock virtually appeared at IMPACT Bound For Glory to induct Ken Shamrock into the IMPACT Hall of Fame. Shamrock asked The Rock to be his inductor back in September and Rock promised he would take care of things.
The Rock delivered on his promise, sending in an induction video where he discussed his relationship with Shamrock, saying he owes a great amount of debt and gratitude to Shamrock for playing "the best hero" and a badass during Rock's early days when he was transforming into The Rock. He ended by thanking Shamrock for everything and congratulating him on his induction.
Congrats, my brother. Awesome news. I will take care of this and get it to you by this weekend.— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) September 25, 2020
Before the induction video, IMPACT aired special messages from other legends in the business including Bret Hart, Mick Foley, Chael Sonnen, Bas Rutten, and more.
The Rock and Shamrock famously feuded throughout 1998 with their most memorable match taking place at WrestleMania 14. Shamrock has always been complimentary of Rock, crediting Rock for building him up during the Attitude Era.
In his induction speech, Shamrock recalled his journey in wrestling before thanking Vince McMahon, Bret Hart, The Rock, his family, and the fans.
