Former WCW, WWE and all around wrestling legend Stone Cold Steve Austin recently did an interview with the UK’s Sun website. He talked about several subjects including making a comeback and TNA Wrestling. Here are some highlights and you can check out the full interview at the link above.
Austin on watching pro wrestling today:
“I just love pro wrestling. I watch all wrestling whenever I can, I watch WWE and I watch TNA. I’ve just always had that passion for the sport. That’s what inspired me to enter the ring in the first place, I watched wrestling avidly as a kid and back then it was guys battering each other in smoke filled arenas and blood flowed freely. And that’s why I still watch WWE and TNA all the time today, it’s entertaining and takes me back.”
Austin on making a comeback and wrestling Hulk Hogan:
“Those ECW guys who are in TNA today, many of them are old road buddies of mine and I have the utmost respect for them.
To be honest it’s great to see some guys still performing out there after the injuries they’ve had. I’m lucky, you know my neck is 100 per cent these days, I can do my own stunts and fight scenes where I can. I don’t claim to be a tough guy, but I give it a go. My neck was fixed in 2000, I had to leave the ring because of the damage, but in my normal life and movies it’s fine, although wrestling wise I’d be a total mess right now.
You know I’m hearing Hulk is talking about getting back in the ring, even though his back is messed up. He was a big guy and all that wear and tear takes a toll on the back and the bigger the guy, the harder it is. But more power to him if he thinks he’s fit to step in the ring. He’s the immortal and only Hulkster, so ultimately he knows his body best. I respect whatever decision he makes.
I never thought I’d say it, but when I’m asked about one more match these days I do tend to say ‘never say never’. So don’t rule it out. I sometimes wish Hogan and I had a run. Imagine how good that could have been? Given the chance I’d have loved to have faced legends like Harley Race, Nick Bockwinkle and Andre the Giant. Those guys in their prime and me in mine would have been great.”
