Las Vegas, Press Conference Set for Sept. 6 at Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS – IMPACT Wrestling welcomes back the promotion’s first-ever World Champion, #KenShamrock, on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 5-6, at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas.
Known as “The World’s Most Dangerous Man,” Shamrock’s return comes on the heels of a very personal social media war with IMPACT Wrestling superstar Moose, who is former #NFL #offensivelineman. The two have gone back and forth on #Twitter with Moose accusing Shamrock of trying to stay relevant, while Shamrock has extended an invitation to his #ValorBareKnuckle pay-per-view event on Sept. 21 in #NorthDakota.
Shamrock and Moose will speak with the media at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) PT Friday, Sept. 6, to address their bitter feelings at future battles. The #pressconference (open to the public) will be held at the #LasVegasFightShop (7400 S. #LasVegasBlvd.) in the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets. Several former NFL players also will be attending through IMPACT Wrestling’s partnership with the NFL Alumni Association.
Shamrock, who captured the World Championship at the inaugural IMPACT show in 2002, had a legendary mixed martial arts career including induction into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2003.
IMPACT Wrestling returns to #SamsTown Live in Las Vegas with television tapings for the flagship weekly show IMPACT!, featuring all the top IMPACT Wrestling stars and Knockouts, including #WorldChampion #BrianCage, #KnockoutsChampion #TayaValkyrie, plus #RobVanDam, #Rhino, #SamiCallihan, #TessaBlanchard, #MichaelElgin, #RichSwann and #EddieEdwards, among others.
“IMPACT Wrestling is excited to welcome back one of our original competitors,” said Scott D’Amore, Executive Vice President of IMPACT Wrestling. “Ken Shamrock is a huge part of our history. We all look forward to seeing what happens when this combat sports legend steps back into an IMPACT Wrestling ring.”
The war of words between Shamrock and Moose is expected to hit a boiling point when the two cross-sport athletes finally meet face-to-face in #LasVegas.
“It’s an honor and privilege for #theFightShop to host the IMPACT Wrestling press conference,” said Dan Rafferty, Fight Shop manager. “We can’t wait to have Ken #ShamrockandMoose in the store. We just hope both monsters stay in line and keep the violence in the ring.”
