Mortal Kurio: Wrestlemania King of Kings - or Emperor of Outworld?

Getting an exact live-action version of the iconic Mortal Kombat arch-villain Shao Kahn has been a game of hit and miss. Surprising, given his original design was built to be worn and realized through live-action digitization.

At this year's Wrestlemania XXX event in New Orleans; WWE's "King of Kings" Triple H returned to action with the most spectacular version of his throne and mask entrance to date. As you'll see from the pictures attached below, his grim skull-faced visage and throne gird by women screams all the trappings of Outworld's Emperor! A live-action spectacle that shames the film versions with its unashamed abandon!


Obviously we've honed in on the element that highlights a Mortal Kombat interest, but for more images from the awe inspiring entrance ceremony, check out the official gallery on WWE.com!

This is far from the first connection between the colourful worlds of World Wrestling Entertainment and Mortal Kombat. In 2013; Rob Van Dam revealed his close call with a Mortal Kombat inspired gimmick that was ultimately retained exclusively by Sub-Zero inspired WCW wrestler: Glacier [full story]. In years past, WWE partnered with Midway to promote Mortal Kombat: Deception [2004] & Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks [2005].


King of Kings: Triple H's King of Kings Armour from Wrestlemania XXX!

To date, Shao Kahn has made three substantial live-action film appearances -- each distinct from the other, but struggling to match the digitized original! [Related Article: Mortal Kombat 3-Disc Blu Ray Set Coming May]

Infamous 1997 theatrical sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation emphasized the strength and physical presence of Kahn by casting 6'4" actor Brian Thompson. The television spin-off Mortal Kombat: Conquest utilized actor Jeffrey Meek's spitting dialogue and paranoid menace to present an after-hours version of the obsessed ruler. Least of them all, Mortal Kombat: Legacy shied away from The Emperor almost all together, reducing him to a more pedestrian, medieval ruler [see more].

Pretty badass. Looks way better than the other versions.

Triple H should play Shao Kahn in the new movie. (This is a somewhat tongue in cheek statement.)

WWE's version makes Annihilation look like a fantastic piece of art.

MKC makes Kahn look like a low class POS emperor. that half assed mask screams getto fagulous.

MKL got so much wrong that i wont bother commenting any further.

Generally speaking, all these are pure shit.

Nothing can touch the MK2 commercial. and i hope no one here is stupid enough to believe that they used the same costume from the game in that.

That armor looks like a mixture between Shao Kahn and a Templar Knight.

Don't mix anything MK with WWE. The armour does not suit the asshole HHH.
HHH in MK as the new Shao Kahn? Baahahahahaha that'd be a joke. MK would get low ratings.

I definitely got a Kahn vibe when Triple H came out sitting on the throne with two women at his side in that slave-ish kinda gear they were both wearing. Was he holding a sledgehammer too? I forgot.

It looked cool to me.

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong

I loved Jeff Meeks Shao Kahn. He was giving away a decent amount of hieght but Meek was head and shoulders about everyone else in terms of acting.

I love how through out the series Kahn goes from being cold, calm and menacing then as seemingly everyone betrays or fails him he becomes more and more angry and less controlled. You could see his frustration build with each episode.

I'm not trying to pretend that MK:C was some amazing show, it really wasnt but I just think Meek could have went further than he did in acting. His Raiden was much better than Lamberts and the MKA guy too.

Thanks to MINION for taking my Siginity!

I too, liked Conquest's Shao Kahn. The last episode made it.

As for this... This looked decent, but the "gold" is too shiny.

The Glacier angle has been widely documented well before 2013... I'm surprised MKO finally picked up on this. I once posted about why it happened and it was part of Turner's deal with MK at the time - Turner made WCW do it and they didn't quite want to.
