Chuck Liddell Says Shane McMahon Asked Him About Joining WWE Years Ago
Speaking to Comic Book, “The Iceman” was asked if he would potentially join WWE like some of his peers.
“Actually, I used to hang out with Shane McMahon every once in a while, we would go out and party sometimes. Good dude,”said Liddell. “And he said ‘If you’re ever seriously interested about coming over we should talk.’ But, you know I never really… I love fighting and I love being in real fighting and I mean I got nothing against WWE. I wouldn’t mind doing that now too. It’s just acting, going out and doing the acting. That’s more like acting.
Those guys, they’re very, it’s a lot of training for those guys. Those guys do some pretty impressive things in the ring as far as… I mean it’s all staged, but it’s still you know, it’s not easy.
“One of the things I’ve always had with that sport too, is… the difference between my sport and their things, see you’re putting your trust in the other guy not to hurt you. Surrendering your body to him. Like, throw you and hope he doesn’t hurt you. In my sport, I’m responsible for you not hurting me. I like having the responsibility on my end not yours.”
