Ken Shamrock, a former UFC champion and WWF wrestler who now works in private security for high-profile people with Pro-Tect Global, has criticized the bodyguard who was in the elevator with Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange Knowles when Solange assaulted Jay Z.
“It’s pretty clear that something went off [between Jay Z and Solange] before the fight,” Shamrock says in an interview with TMZ. “The bodyguard should never have put them on the elevator together. You’re waiting for a time bomb to go off. And when it does, you’re stuck.”
Shamrock also critiqued another moment from the footage.
“Rather than getting in between Jay and Solange, he was pressing the elevator buttons,” Shamrock says. “It seemed to me he didn’t know what his job was.”
Shamrock also acknowledges that the situation was a difficult one and that “it’s easy to judge from afar,” according to TMZ.
