During a recent appearance on the “Sidewalks Entertainment” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin commented on a variety of topics, including the ups and downs of his career, his journey to the top of WWE, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the ups and downs of his career: “You just described my wrestling career, and it was actually a blast. When I started, I was actually terrible. Through trial and tribulations and paying dues on the road, I ended up being really good at it. That was just due to a lot of hard work. I had a lot of great times in the business, it was the number one passion in my life was my wrestling career. I’ve said that on many occasions. That is a real tough life and it will take a lot out of you because you have to give it everything you’ve got. You’re living out on the road, you can never come out of the road because if you do, someone will replace you. The pressure is hot, the injury rate is high, and you go down the road with a bunch of guys that you come to know and live and some of the craziest individuals that you’ll ever meet in your life. Throughout it all, you’re just trying to go up the card.”
On his journey to the top of WWE: “When I first got into the business of wrestling, I just got in to be a wrestler. When you get in there, ‘Oh, okay, you want to be on top.’ Getting to the top is the journey. Remaining on top is really hard. Through it all, I met some great people and I’m thankful to every body that helped me out in my career and took me under my arm and gave me some tips of wisdom and I’m thankful to WWE for the opportunity.”
