"Go get em, kid. Always be a student of the game and keep working hard. Safe travels. #respect from the #BSR," Austin wrote.
The statement was in response to Sheamus positively acknowledging Austin's critical remarks regarding his performance level in a recent column for Fighting Spirit Magazine. The SmackDown wrestler tweeted, "Appreciate words from @steveaustinBSR - i strive to get better everyday fella & hard work is something i love.. See me bring Hell in a Cell."
Cole instead branded the exchange as Austin taking the initiative to give the WWE Champion a ringing endorsement on Twitter, and Sheamus responding to it. The WWE Hall of Famer's critical column remarks were not acknowledged on-air.
In the column, Austin offered his opinion on WWE's World Titles and said Sheamus is not ready to be World Heavyweight Champion.
"Sheamus is a big talented dude, no doubt about it. Can he get to where the company wants him to go? That remains to be seen, and there's a lot of work required from both him and the company in order to jump to that superstar level," Austin wrote. "He's doing fine for the amount of time he's been in the business, and there is no disrespect intended, but there are so many aspects that go towards making a guy draw money with the title."
