Steve Austin Talks About Appearing On RAW Again And What He’s Been Doing Outside Of WWE

Steve Austin recently spoke with Brian Frtiz of Fox about appearing on the October 19th edition of RAW and what he’s been doing outside of WWE. Here are the highlights.



On appearing on the October 19th edition of RAW:

“It was what it was,” explained Austin. “It was short, brief. I had four announcements to make. I got handed a piece of paper: ‘Yeah, I’ll be ready for Raw, yeah, I’ll be ready for (WrestleMania) 32 in Dallas. I’ve got Brock Lesnar coming up in a couple of hours and I’m going to introduce The Undertaker right now.’ So, you know, when you ain’t been on TV for four years and you’d really like to go out there and uncork a promo and just raise hell for my 6-10 minutes, it left a lot to be desired for my part, but it was doing a favor for WWE.”

“It’s always nice when you can go out, because it’s been so long, and get a great ovation and a pop and people still remember who you are,” said Austin. “On one hand, it was great to be seen by the WWE fans, it was great to get that reception and I’m always grateful for the fact that people remember what I did while I was involved in the business of pro wrestling.”

On what he’s been doing outside of WWE:

I’ve been focusing on reality television shows, which I really love doing. I’ve got two shows on Country Music Television — CMT Network — and one of them is the No. 1 show on the network. Between filming those gigs, it’s hard to line up the dates,” explained Austin, who hosts Redneck Island and Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge on the channel.
