The Rock took to Instagram earlier today, commenting on his matches with Ken Shamrock during the late 90s. He said that during one of them, Shamrock hit a suplex and it damaged blood vessels in his lung. He said,
“Not the most elegant or sexy #throwbackthursday back when I had a lil’ internal bleeding (not planned) while wrestling @UFC Hall Of Famer, @kenshamrockofficial aka “The World’s Most Dangerous Man”.
I loved wrestling Kenny around the world and we had some classic matches.
On this night I took a hard suplex and the impact damaged blood vessels in my lungs causing the blood to come up.
Kept composed, made sure I could breath and continued with the match.
I’d like to think Ken would’ve shown me some compassion, but his facial expression says “f*ck your bleeding lungs” as he tries to rip my ankle from my tibia.
These were good days and this was how I proudly made my bones.
As always, “thank you for house”, brother.”
