One of the most historic, appreciated, loved and followed feuds in the entire history of WWF/E was undoubtedly the one that was the flagship of the so-called Attitude Era, a famous period of the discipline of the world of wrestling, lived in WWE at the end of the 90s, where both the promos, the matches and the segments broadcast by McMahon were definitely dedicated to a mainly adult audience and not to the whole family.
Clashing in this sensational feud that lasted years, were the Chairman of the WWE, Vince McMahon and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, multiple world champion of the federation, who for a period of time as long as the entire rise of his career towards the Olympus of the greatest wrestlers of all time, he was the real thorn in the side of the Chairman and his entire family.
In his latest speech to Wrestling Inc, former WWE World Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin wanted to tell his fans how Vince McMahon no longer even answers his phone calls, unlike when he was the most important face of his product, with the WWE Hall of Famer revealing: "He doesn't even answer my calls anymore, but let me tell you something when I was working for him and I was at the top, when I called Vince, that phone didn't even ring halfway before he answered.
Now I have to text him and then I get the answer after at least a couple of days."
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin on Vince McMahon
Apparently, things change for everyone. Ever since Steve Austin was number one in the company and was considered the most influential personality in the WWF, at which time she also has difficulty communicating with her former employer, if not earlier than a day or two.
Apparently time changes all kinds of relationships and as we fans of the WWE Universe already know, everything that is not part of the business or that is not a fundamental part of it, for the Chairman of the WWE becomes secondary.
Unfortunately for us and for him, now even Stone Cold has become one. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was the driving force of WWE during the Attitude Era, and the same applies to Chris Jericho for AEW. Both men have tremendous respect for each other and it's a win for both companies, especially WWE, whose Network content recently made the move to the Peacock streaming service.
Steve Austin added, “Having someone from there on a WWE show, especially the caliber of Chris Jericho, is pretty damn cool. Chris spent almost 20 years in WWE. When you talk about best runs in the history of the business, Chris Jericho’s name is going to come up”.
