Steve Austin on Superstar Billy Graham being the first Stone Cold: He was at another level; in a different world. Big props to Superstar because really, he was the first Stone Cold because when Senior (Vince McMahon Sr.) was running the promotion he was a white hot heel who transitioned himself into a baby (face) but senior didn’t really know what to do with him.
Steve Austin hitches a ride with Barry Windham: Windham looks over at me and goes,” kid, who you riding with?” I said, “I don’t know man. Guess I’ll just get a Rent-A-Car.” He goes, “Why don’t you ride with us?” I said, “Well cool.” Got in the car, it was a Cadillac. A brand new Cadillac Four Star V8. I never sat in a Cadillac, much less drove one. Barry goes, “Kid you want to drive?” I said, ‘Well sure.” So we’re going down the highway somewhere in the south; Florida or Georgia, somewhere like that. And we’re going down the road and I’m just looking at all the gadgets you know. The speedometer and all that stuff and I veer off the road and I jerk it back and it was kind of scary because I was going about 70mph. And Barry the king of the no sell. looks at me like this (WTF) “You okay kid?”
Stone Cold Steve Austin talk about Being fans of Botchamania: God dang it’s so entertaining when you see people blow stuff in the ring as long as nobody gets hurt.
Stone Cold Steve Austin’s thoughts on Willie Mack using the Stunner: Man, I think he does a good job with it and I’ve been wanting to have him on the podcast… I think it’s great. He’s a damn good worker to begin with…I got no problem with it at all. I think it’s bad ass.
Is Stone Cold planing a trip to Reseda for PWG Battle of LA :We just got finished filming (Broken Skull Challenge) so I might undertake one evening of that. Because I’ve been wanting to check out that scene because I’ve heard how cool the atmosphere is and everybody buys in
Steve Austin on how he can’t find ROH on his TV:I just never know what channel it’s on or how to watch it. I would DVR it because when I was filming (Broken Skull Challenge) I had a satellite and a big TV in my trailer.
Steve Austin on whether he would do an acting role if The Rock produced it: I’m so proud of The Rock and everything he has done. I don’t like to memorize anything. Would I consider it, Yes.
Steve Austin’s not happy with the way he performed in “The Longest Yard” : When I watched “The Longest Yard” back I was mad because I could have toned it down with a few scenes I had with Kevin Nash. I was yelling at the top of my voice & I thought “ Man, why didn’t the director call me and say, Steve, that’s a level 10 of intensity, why don’t you start a level 2 or 3.” Direct me a little bit, I’m not faulting the guy, I was just a guy.
Steve Austin on Roman Reigns being over: Anytime you go out to the ring and you didn’t learn something new, you probably missed an opportunity. I don’t care how good you are, you can always get better. So, if Roman (Reigns) learned something from that and he can capitalize on it and gain and improve in the future, props to him.
Steve Austin believes that Hunter Mcintyre from Broken Skull Ranch can be successful in WWE : Hunter McIntyre who has been successful, he’s the number one obstacle course racers in the world, he’s a great competitor. He’s 6’2 right now he’s about 200lbs, but 200lb on him is a big 200. He’s so shredded, but he’s an elite athlete gas tank from hell. You can not get this kid tired and because he’s so athletically inclined he’s only 28 and he’s super smart, I think he’s making a run for it.
Stone Cold Steve Austin Talks To Ric Flair On The Phone: I talked to him yesterday, on the phone. And he’s laughing, and he’s got a ways to go and I will elaborate no further about that.
Stone Cold Talks About South Paw Regional Wrestling: I watched all of season one, I’ve probably seen every episode six times. Jesus Christ, Rusev talking about the chickens and he almost breaks character … huge fan, I love it, I am about to watch Season 2… It’s so campy, and hokey and fun
Stone Cold Talks About How Much He Enjoys The Fashion Police: Fandango and Tyler Breeze together…and all of a sudden they put the Fashion Files out and I am like, when I watch Raw those guys, they crack me up. I’ll rewind their shit , I don’t know how many times
Stone Cold Shares Funny Story About The Ultimate Warrior : I had a few phone conversations with him after he changed his name to Warrior… I am talking to him on the phone and I am thinking “Hey Warrior” [ laughs}, I feel like a mark, well I am calling him Warrior… here’s Warrior, I know his name is Jim … and I am waiting for him to say ‘ Steve, man, just call me Jim.” and he never did. [laughs]
