Steve Austin Says He Would Wrestle For WWE Again; Why He Never Faced Hulk Hogan, WWE’s Heart Attack Angle

Arda Ocal of The Score Television Network and the Baltimore Sun spoke with WWE legend and film & tv star “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Highlights:

– How he’s recovering from knee surgery and if he’ll ever compete again and the fact that he would be willing to entertain an offer from WWE and where exactly that process is at right now.

– Discusses the release of the WWE ’13 video game in which he is a focal point, and does it bother him that CM Punk is on the cover.

– Talks about the return of his reality tv series Redneck Island on CMT. “I consider myself the king of rednecks.”

– Why an Austin/Hogan dream match never happened. “I don’t think I just ever wanted to wrestle the guy I guess.”

– Finally Austin gives his opinion on the recent CM Punk/Paul Heyman “Fake Heart Attack” incident and if he thinks it crossed the line. “I believe in pushing the envelope in an aggressive fashion. But when a guy damn near dies at ringside, let it go.”

    The 80’s and 90’s Hogan was awesome and the 2012 Hogan just some sad ass porn star having sex with all his friend’s wife’s trying to make millions of dollars. I really don’t blame Austin for not wanting to having a dream match with Hogan because Hogan use to be cool and now he just some low life piece of shit

    • Al Oli

      He has always been a low life piece of shit.

  • Tom

    If you want to see Austin have one more match, give me a hell yeah!

    • Donte Shoshona Gopual

      OH Hell Yeahh considering that i never saw him wrestle before live on tv or in an arena.

    • Craig DeBoard

      Sure, why not.

    • Dick Chipperson

      Stone Cold E.T. would like to see that as well. “OH HELL YEAH!”

  • Craig DeBoard

    It’s sounding more and more like Punk/Austin will be a lock for Mania. That or it’s wishful thinking. Would be interesting to see Vince stuck between the two of them.

    • Brent Genito

      I’m inclined to believe that Punk vs Austin WILL happen, but I do not think that it will be at this year’s WrestleMania. If I had to give a “lock” on it, I would say WrestleMania 30.

    Stone Cold/Hogan was the match I wanted to see at WM 18. I remember being pissed for awhile that it was Rock instead of Austin.. lol And I remember hoping for Rock/HBK at WM 19.. If any year was the perfect year to have Austin/Hogan it was ’02, and for Rock/HBK it was ’03. It’s too bad they never happened..
