Source: Ring Rust RadioBleacher Report featured columnists Donald Wood, Mike Chiari and Brandon Galvin recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, which you can check out above. Here are just a few highlights:
If he would come out of retirement to face Brock Lesnar:
"I'd consider anything if the perfect situation or opportunity arose and it would be more than a million-dollar question. I don't want to sit here and promote a match, sell a match or talk about making a comeback... People get their panties in a wad and say, 'Stone Cold, either do it or not.' So, anything can happen, but I'm not going to endorse, promote, sell or tease anything in regards to a match."
"What was sold to me was Hulk Hogan goes to the ring, then The Rock goes to the ring, then Stone Cold goes to the ring. So what I was sold and what happened were two different things. Be that as it may, it turned out as it did, I had a hell of a lot more stuff that I wanted to say in regards to a promo, but they presented that on the day and I went with it because if you get to perform at WrestleMania, the time should go to the guys and the gals who are going to be working the matches in the ring, so that they can all tell their stories. So I went along for the ride.
"I have a lot of respect for Hulk Hogan. The Rock is a friend of mine and I have a ton of respect for him, and when you get three cats like us in the ring, it was truly a good time, and I think everyone there enjoyed it."
CM Punk leaving WWE the way he did:
"I totally get it. If it's strictly burnout and not being thrilled with the storylines, I totally get it and understand it. You get to a point where it doesn't matter about the money and I didn't give a ****, but that's me speaking now. Back then, I didn't give a flying f--k. I was willing to forego the money because I didn't care. I was fed up.
"But now looking back and hindsight being 20/20, and I realize how much money I left on the table because all of the business deals dropped off the table because that was a big point in my life. So I can understand if it's just strictly burnout or frustration; I get it. If it's anything else, if it's a health issue, I don't know. It is what it is. If he feels like coming back, he will."
Much more is contained in the interview with Austin, including the idea that Austin pitched to Vince McMahon for WrestleMania 30, Goldberg, his podcast, Hulk Hogan, his television work, Tough Enough, more on CM Punk, how he can get the most out of John Cena and so much more.
