WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin spoke with Vince Russo on episodes 303 and 305 of The Steve Austin Show. Here are the highlights.
On holding back his opinion on WWE’s product:
“A lot of the time, I hold back because I’m one of the boys and I’ve got to show up every damn month for a podcast. It’s not my goal to run anybody down [or] run anybody down that’s in control. I love the [professional wrestling] business, but it is what it is. I have my opinion. Sometimes, believe me, I’m holding back when I’m talking about my opinions because I don’t want to shoot a hole in anybody.”
On certain topics being off limits for his WWE Network podcast:
“Sometimes, in talking, quite frankly, with WWE talent, you can’t go certain directions.” Austin continued, “there’s a line that is drawn that you really can’t cross over because they can’t bury themselves [and] they can’t talk about certain things, so, sometimes, it just is what it is.”
