Source: Inside The RopesSteve Austin joined "Inside The Ropes" to talk about WWE '13 and Redneck Island. Here are some highlights:
His WWE '13 sit down promo with CM Punk and Jim Ross: "It was a lot of fun going back and being a part of WWE '13 the video game, hang out with my good buddy Jim Ross and CM Punk, a young guy in the business I really like... I really like what he's bringing to the table and what he's doing. To go back and play The Rattlesnake character was a lot of fun. You know we pushed the envelope a little bit there, but we played it straight down the middle, but I would've loved to ramp it up and go full bore Stone Cold on him, but it just wasn't that time. Who knows if there will be a time down the road, but I enjoyed being that guy. It's a dynamic part of my personality. I enjoy the adrenaline."
Bruno Sammartino's criticisms of The Attitude Era: "Bruno is a legend in the business and his opinion is his opinion. I think he's very closed minded about the Attitude Era. One thing I think he's missing out on is the fact that it's the entertainment business. Speaking from a Stone Cold standpoint, I went out there and I entertained and I pushed the envelope but when it came time to ring that bell in that 20 by 20 ring, I wrestled my ass off. I brawled and I fought and I gave the fans every bit of their moneys worth.
"Bruno's opinion is what it is. When you look back at where the business was, it was a little slow. I can appreciate that, but you fast forward all these years and it's a little faster and either you like it or you don't."
Austin also discussed Tough Enough, Redneck Island, his favourite moments in his career and why he'd consider facing CM Punk in a match. You can watch the interview below:
