Former WCW and WWE pro wrestling star Stone Cold Steve Austin was recently interviewed by the U.K.’s Sun and the subject of Hulk Hogan vs. Sting at Bound For Glory came up. Here are the former Hollywood Blonde’s thoughts on the match:
“I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard about Hogan v Sting. That will be interesting too, I mean Hogan had back surgery didn’t he?
They are both great guys. I’m a fan of Sting’s and he can still go with the best of them. I know Hogan well and he still has it when he needs it.
It will be a very interesting night at the office that one and I will most certainly be watching Bound For Glory to see how it works out.
I get annoyed when people say that such and such should retire, or they shouldn’t compete due to injury or age.
I know how it works and many of these guys find it hard to stay out of the ring. Hogan, for example, was put on this world to be there.
There may often be money involved when guys step back in the ring, but it’s more about their need to be there than the financial rewards.
The other thing is that there are so few people coming up through the ranks who can match the success of guys like Hulk, Flair, Sting or myself.
Cena may be the only one who has reached that level — I’ve yet to see another hit that peak yet.”
It’s always good to hear from the Texas Rattlesnake. Always a very candid interview without the seemingly obligatory burying of other wrestlers that occurs more and more often nowadays. You can check out the rest of the interview at the link above.
