WWE legend Ken Shamrock admits he is baffled why Vince McMahon has not picked up the phone and asked him to return.
The star known as the World’s Most Dangerous Man was one of the biggest names in the business back in the late 1990s.
After joining the company from UFC, he was a key cog in the Attitude Era that battled back from a huge ratings slump to defeat rival promotion WCW and put them out of business.
Shamrock, 53, left WWE back in 1999 to wrestle on the independent circuit and return to the octagon.
The ex-Intercontinental and tag-team champion has watched his former employers bring back a number of men from the past recently.
Shamrock admits he is open to stepping-back into the squared-circle and believes he is the ideal man to work with the returning veterans.
However, he says he cannot understand why WWE owner McMahon has not already been in touch.
And he is not expecting the billionaire to make contact soon.
Speaking to the Wrestledelphia Radio podcast, Shamrock said: “I doubt it. I’ve been saying this for years.
“I’m not understanding that with everybody that I’ve seen come back – Kurt Angle, The Rock – how isn’t Ken Shamrock there?
“If anybody makes sense in coming back and doing something with those guys coming back, there is no other better person than myself.”

A perfect event for the 1998 King of the Ring winner to make a stunning return would be the Royal Rumble in January, which often has a surprise or two contained in its 30 entrants.
And WWE are on the verge of making next year’s pay-per-view even more historic.
They are due to announce the first-ever female Rumble match after the recent influx of women stars onto the Raw and SmackDown rosters.
