Impact officially announces its next Hall of Famer, complete with footage of his WWE career

We already knew who the next inductee into Impact’s Hall of Fame would be. It was revealed in the ring while they were taping in Las Vegas last month.

But the episode with the announcement finally aired on AXS last night (Tues., Mar. 17), so now we can talk about Ken Shamrock without spoiling anything for the hundreds of Impact viewers out there.

We can also talk about how healthy the relationship is between the former-TNA and WWE. Footage from Impact has become almost commonplace on WWE Network specials and documentaries. It’s a two-way street, as evidenced by Shamrock’s video package including his time as a WWF Intercontinental & Tag champ, and his submission win over The Rock to become King of the Ring in 1998.

The segment led to the World’s Most Dangerous Man being “blinded” by a fireball delivered by Sami Callihan in his latest hacker gimmick, ICU...

... but we’ll leave that for Manolo to cover in his Impact Recap & Reactions later this week.

In the meantime, congrats to Shamrock! And it’s nice to see a couple companies with a lot of shared history working together and not pretending the other doesn’t exist.
