“Stone Cold” Steve Austin Defends Dana White For Calling Pro Wrestling Fake

WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Austin responded during a recent episode of his podcast to the recent comments of UFC President Dana White after he called wrestling “fake” on Twitter. Down below is what Austin had to say:

“I know Dana [White] is from the world of boxing and MMA, but I know he respects the world of professional wrestling. I thought that was his way of saying, ‘It’s a work’ because there’s a difference. Is it fake? It’s predetermined. It’s a work! So I don’t think [White] meant any disrespect to the business because I’ll say this, Daniel [Cormier]: I’ll take you, I’ll take Jon Jones, I’ll take the heavyweight champion of the world, I’ll take the bantamweight champion of the world, I’ll take any of you guys who want to go on the road for two years and be on the road for 250 days and go through that grind and you’ll never say ‘fake’, but what you will say, ‘It’s tough as hell!’ Fake, Dana? Not so much. A work? Yes, and I’m not saying that to put Dana on blast because I love him, I love the UFC, and he has always treated me well and always got me tickets when I got to see you fight in [Las] Vegas, so he’s always taken care of me but I think he does respect the business, and, hell, one of his biggest draws [Brock Lesnar] came from the world of pro wrestling.“

    I like Steve, but Dana’s further comments towards fans who corrected him prove this isn’t the case.

    I mean, one fan told him “It’s predetermined, not fake”, and Dana replied simply “Trust me, buddy, it’s FAKE!”

    I love how Stone Cold is always the voice of reason. Who’d have thunk it?

    Steve, you DAMNED RIGHT!
