WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recently spoke with ABC News. Here are the highlights.
On what he would be doing if he did not get into wrestling:
“Everything I’ve done goes back to pro wrestling,” Austin told ABC News. “Had I not been able to achieve what I did, I guarantee you … my high school jobs were always working in the highway department — driving dump trucks, patching up roads, digging ditches, driving a forklift. I think if I’d never had found pro wrestling, I’d be a blue collar guy, working a 9-to-5 job.”
“I really don’t do too many movies any more because memorizing words on a page is painful to me,” he said. “But I love the reality stuff.”
On his TV series on CMT:
“I have two bada** shows on their network,” he said. “I’m really proud of ‘Broken Skull Challenge‘ … The transition has been an evolution of the pieces just falling into place, choosing maybe the projects that weren’t the best, but ones that facilitated the next move. I’m just rolling the dice and playing the game of life.”
On WWE 2K16:
“Fans get to live vicariously through the story-lines and get a chance to see first-person what it’s like to be a WWE superstar,” he added. “This game blows me away.”
