Ken Shamrock went through many struggles, as his father left the family when Ken was young, and they moved to Napa, California when his mother remarried.  At the age of ten, Shamrock was stabbed during a robbery, sent to juvenile hall, and at the age of thirteen sent away from his home, into a life of petty crime and drug-taking. With no place to live, Shamrock spent his days and nights on the streets until he was placed in a Boys’ Home. Shamrock’s misery followed him through high school, and though he did well in wrestling competitions and even qualified for state championships, he broke his neck before the main event, and instead of participating had to undergo serious surgery.

However, this did not stop Shamrock from a professional wrestling career. In 1989, Ken Shamrock made his debut in the South Atlantic Pro Wrestling promotion, and was then introduced to the Japanese wrestling organization “Fujiwara Gumi”, as well as mixed martial arts. Shamrock’s successful beginnings in the Japanese league resulted in the creation of “The Pancrase” promotion, which was founded by Shamrock and his fellow wrestling friends Masakatsu Funaki and Minoru Suzuki. With the beginnings of “The Pancrase”, Ken Shamrock became a huge celebrity in Japan, attracting large audiences to his matches. Needless to say, Ken’s net worth was increasing at the same time as well. In 1993, Shamrock made a return to the US, and joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The key moment of his career in UFC was his rivalry with Royce Gracie and Dan Severn, who he defeated to become the UFC Superfight Champion. Shamrock’s performances in the ring gained him the title of “The World’s Most Dangerous Man”, which would soon become his nickname. However, in 1997 Shamrock left the UFC and joined World Wrestling Federation, where he managed to secure wins in the WWF Intercontinental Championship, Tag Team Championship, and in 1998 even became the winner of the King of the Ring event.

Shamrock made a return to the UFC once again, yet left the company in 2007 and focused on individual matches instead. At this same time, Shamrock was scheduled to fight such opponents as Bobby Lashley, Pedro Rizzo and James Toney. Ken Shamrock’s desire to continue fighting despite his age and the many injuries that he has suffered throughout his career raised a lot of criticism and calls for retirement from the media, as well as the fans. Nevertheless, Ken is still considered to be among the top 10 best mixed martial artists of all time. Currently, Ken Shamrock is taking a break from the ring, and instead works as a security guard for 50 Cent.

In his personal life, Ken was first married to Tina Ramirez; they have four children but divorced in 1992. He has been married to Tonya since 2005, and is stepfather to her three children.
