Stone Cold speaks out on Orton/Austin at WM 27

Last week, here at WrestlingDynasty, we posted an entry on the possibility of Austin doing a match with Randy Orton at WM 27. Well, the upcoming RAW GM, Stone Cold Steve Austin, recently appeared on Live Audio Wrestling and shared with us his thoughts.

On doing another wrestling match – “You may see me in a wrestling ring but I don’t think I’ll be wrestling. I think it’s best to leave well enough alone and let people remember Steve Austin for what he was. Could I go back? I could get another couple of years out of this carcass if I wanted to or if I had to and I could have another match but what’s the point? I have my sights focused on trying to be as good an actor as I can be and go down this road. I love my wrestling fans and wrestling is what put me on the map and I still follow the business to this day but I’m going to leave well enough alone.”

On the comparison between Randy and him – “I guess you can see a parallel and I like Randy – ‘Cowboy’ Bob Orton was one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, I loved what he did in the ring. But when you make that comparison to Stone Cold, that’s a pretty tough comparison if I’m that guy and I think Randy is a great talent in the ring and I love the viper gimmick but that’s a tough comparison.”

On Jim Ross leaving the commentary desk – “Jim is a very close, personal friend and was very instrumental and a big part of my career and I love the guy but it’s just a case of the WWE wanting to go in a different direction and maybe get younger. The show has changed, it’s a PG rated show so Jim fits into that but the Stone Cold character not so much. That’s just the business and sooner or later your time is up and I guess they figured his time was up. I love Jim Ross and I think he’s the greatest announcer in the history of the business and there’s been a couple of outstanding ones and lots of good ones but I put him at the top of the list – and that’s just the wrestling business.”

Recently, Austin also attended a UFC event that features Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin. Here is an exclusive video on Austin, JR, Goldberg and Paul Heyman sharing their thoughts. You can view the video here. Enjoy.
