WWE legend Ken Shamrock was suspended from wrestling by the IMPACT company after a violent rampage during a show last week.

The 56-year-old went on the attack during a show last week, attempting to get at a number of referees and bodyguards.

He got a referee in an ankle lock hold, and refused to let go despite other officials pleading with him to stop.

It was the latest in a series of bizarre events in Shamrock’s life, following UFC president Dana White saying he’d pay him to stay retired, a meltdown during Wrestlemania and issuing an official complaint to Bellator following a loss.

Here, Daily Star Sport has collected a series of outrageous events from his life.

Incest storyline

During his time with the WWE, Vince McMahon had plans to do an incestual storyline between him and Ryan Shamrock.

McMahon apparently pitched to Stephanie McMahon whereby Shamrock would be named as the father of his sister’s baby.

Ryan Shamrock, his kayfabe sister, left the WWE after a year, and admitted Ken had refused a romantic storyline between the two.

McMahon also turned down the storyline, and things never went any further.

Parking lot romps

Shamrock and his kayfabe sister may have turned down a romantic storyline within the WWE, but they dated outside the sport anyway.

A fan is said to have spotted them kissing in a parked car in a parking lot.

Alicia Webb, who played Ryan Shamrock in the WWE, was 19 years younger than Shamrock.

They split shortly after being seen together.

Stabbed at age 10

A more dark moment in Shamrock’s life came when he was just ten years old.

When he was a child, he ran away from home, and was stabbed by another child and ended up in hospital.

Shamrock apparently had committed “five or six” robberies at various stores prior to the stabbing.

He claimed he was stabbed behind a 7-11 store, and woke up handcuffed to a hospital bed the next morning.

Wrestlemania meltdown

Shamrock took on The Rock at Wrestlemania XIV and won via tap-out.

But then, he went on a rage-fuelled rampage and refused to let The Rock out of the hold he had him in, and subsequently was punished by referees who stripped him of his title immediately.

He then tried to fight a number of referees who were trying to pull him away.

Official complaint to Bellator

After his wrestling career ended, Shamrock began a stint in mixed martial arts.

Following a stint in UFC and another in PRIDE, he signed with Bellator and lost his first fight to Kimbo Slice.

Shamrock then took on Royce Gracie in 2016, but was defeated again in the first-round.

He was fuming, however, and issued an official complaint to Bellator, saying the referee had failed to note an illegal low blow from Gracie.

The complaint came to nothing, however, and Shamrock didn’t fight in mixed martial arts again.

Dana White saying he'll pay him NOT to fight

Shamrock’s time with the UFC saw him have a bitter rivalry with Tito Ortiz.

He fought well beyond his prime, however, and UFC president Dana White had to intervene at one point.

White said in 2008 after a contract dispute with Shamrock that he would rather pay him to stay at home than see him fight again.

The UFC chief got his wish, and Shamrock never fought under the company banner again.

Living in an RV

Shamrock decided to take things to the extreme when training for a fight against Kimbo Slice in 2015.

The former WWE star opted against living in his family home, and instead bought an RV to live in.

He parked the RV nine hours south of his family home and lived in it for his entire training camp.

Shamrock apparently chose to live in those conditions in order to keep close to the gym, thus eliminating the commute to training.
