Steve Austin reveals WWE originally wanted him to wear a singlet

Stone Cold Steve Austin

On the latest edition of The Steve Austin Show, WWE Hall of Famer, ”Stone Cold” Steve Austin talked about his diet. He would also reveal how WWE wanted him to wear a singlet while he was ‘The Ringmaster’.

Steve Austin said he needs to bulk up and gain strength if he wants to work out at Gold’s gym.

We used to go [to Gold’s Gym] back in the heyday, man. Then, all-of-a-sudden, I got all beat up. Hey, I haven’t been back in 10 years. I’m working on making a comeback to Gold’s Gym.

Hell, man, half the women in there are bigger than me, so I was coming back from a shoulder injury one time and I think I was pressing like 50s or 60s and some chick was pressing 80s! So I said, ‘eff this! I’m going to start training arms!'”

Austin also revealed how WWE wanted him to wear a singlet as ‘The Ringmaster’. He said he had started wearing what he desired only after he knew no one cared about what he was doing.

“Man, they wanted me to wear a singlet. I said, ‘I ain’t wearing a singlet.’ And when I debuted, I wore those green trunks for a few episodes of TV and I still had my Hollywood Blond boots because I asked them about what I needed to bring. They said, ‘naw, man, just bring your old boots,’ so I knew they didn’t have [any] plans for me.

So anyway, when I knew they really weren’t paying attention, I started wearing my black stuff and I got my black boots and turned it into what I turned it into.”
