Ken Shamrock Vs. the Nasty Boys
By Frank Dusek
wasn't in the motel when the fight happened. I was running
South Atlantic Pro Wrestling at the time so it was my responsibility
to find out what happened.
was in bad shape and left soon after the incident to recover.
He never had too much to say about the entire affair. He
took one whale of a beating. His head was swollen to the
point that it almost didn't look human. His entire face
was a mass of purples, greens and shades of yellow.
to the Nasty Boys, the trouble started over a girl.
After a show, Ken went to the Nasty's room to "have
it out" with Knobs. Knobs was in bed when Ken
knocked so Saggs answered the door. According to
them, when they opened the door, Shamrock burst into
the room and jumped onto Knobs, beating the daylights out
of him. If I remember right, Knobs did have a black eye
and some swelling the next day.
has always struck me as odd that a man as accustomed to
fighting as Ken Shamrock obviously is, wouldn't take into
consideration the fact that his opponent's partner might
not just stand by and let his friend take a butt whipping.
to the Nasty Boys, Saggs joined the fray and the two quickly
got the better of a much smaller Ken Shamrock than the one
in the WWF today.
like Shamrock, the Nasty Boys aren't strangers to fighting
and once they got Shamrock down they smelled blood they
went into a blind rage. Shamrock lost consciousness as the
Nasties continued their assault on the prone Shamrock putting
the boots to his head and face.
the commotion brought out Robert Fuller who was staying
in the same motel. It was Fuller and the Pit Bulldogs (Rex
& Spike) that talked the Nasty Boys out of throwing
the unconscious Shamrock off the balcony to the cement walk
don't know if Ken Shamrock and the Nasty Boys have been
on the same card since this happened, but I would hate to
be in the way the first time they met.
doubt either Ken Shamrock or the Nasty Boys have forgotten.
