During UpUpDownDown's live stream, Steve Austin commented on wrestlers taking his stunner. Steve Austin remembered several of them who do it in an excellent way, but also those who really did not impress him. “I love the reaction that The Rock would do.
Razor took a good one, but it was all like an individual thing. Vince, I mean, he wasn’t even in the top 100. That last one at 38, when we botched that one, I just got up and started laughing because when you blow something that bad, everybody knows what’s up, so you might as well let them all in right off the get go.
There’s been a bunch of good ones. There’s been so many. It’s hard to remember, but I just remember Rock really putting the Hollywood in it. He put the oversell into it, but that oversell matched the moment and magnified the story that we were telling.
We fed off each other. We were like Frick and Frack out there. ”- Austin said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Steve Austin vs Shawn Michaels
There are a few things Austin said about the match that he won at WrestleMania 14 where he defeated Shawn Michaels to win the WWF Championship.
It was a real spectacle that he will never forget. He also recalled an interesting proposal that Vince Mcmahon made.
“That was a big deal for me as it is for everybody. The match, on a one to five, is a two. I mean, Shawn, I consider from bell to bell, when the bell rings from the beginning to the end, I consider Shawn to have no peers.
Now, Bret as far as realism, you can’t top him. Flair is my traveling World Champion. I mean, he’s the man. But from bell to bell talent wise, no one can lace Shawn Michaels boots. So to go out there and have a lackluster match with him and in the biggest show of the year, WrestleMania, and that was a sold out show and it’s a small building compared to nowadays, that was a big deal.
We had Mike Tyson there. I remember when Vince told me one time he said, ‘You know, I’m thinking about bringing Mike Tyson in.’ I said, ‘Why are you going to bring in Mike? He’s like, ‘Why am I going to bring in Mike? Because he’s really, really over.’”
