Steve Austin reveals he almost got into a real fight during a match

Stone Cold Steve Austin won nineteen titles in his career including six times the WWF Championship, two times the Intercontinental Championship and four times the WWF Tag Team Championship, becoming the fifth wrestler to carry the Triple Crown.

He was also the winner of the 1996 edition of the King of the Ring tournament as well as the winner of the 1997, 1998 and 2001 editions of the Royal Rumble, establishing an absolute record of victories that is unbeaten even today.

With the character of The Ringmaster, he had "Million Dollar Man" as manager Ted DiBiase, who awarded him the Million Dollar Championship (unofficial title). His path to WrestleMania is seven participations: 5 wins and 2 losses (1996-2003).

Stone Cold Steve Austin was recently a guest on Booker T's Hall of Fame podcast. Booker T's co-host Brad Gilmore asked Austin about how the two legends once almost got into a real fight during a match.

Steve Austin, and a quick look at Booker T's WWE career

Stone Cold Steve Austin gave the details saying that Booker T had caught him with a big right hand.

"I'll tell you what, I'll never forget. I'm really glad you asked that question cause me and Book are going to look eye to eye on this. We might be miles apart but we're looking eye to eye. Book hauled off and hit me with that big a** right hand of his, I mean, he knocked the trash out of me and normally I'm very very forgiving and very patient in the ring when guys start throwing potatoes but he lit me up so hard, instant rage come across me and I send a receipt like ASAP, here it comes.

I threw it with everything I had but the problem is this arm doesn't stretch out all the way and he was just back far enough that I couldn't connect with him and I was trying to knock his a** out. And I'm lucky I got such a good chin or his working punch would have knocked me out."

Booker T had a very successful career in WWE. Booker T won multiple championships during his time in WWE and also won the 2006 King of the Ring tournament after which he introduced his popular King Booker persona. After retiring, Booker T has done commentary for WWE and still occasionally appears on pre-show panels.
