• “He’s not a main eventer” – Vince McMahon On Former WWF Champion

During a recent interview on Premier Live TV, WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts recalled a story of Vince McMahon not believing in Steve Austin, and thinking he won’t turn out to be a main event player.

Here’s what Roberts said:

“When Steve Austin came to WWF, I was helping write television, and I watched him, and I said, ‘This motherf***er got it, man. He’s got that ‘it’ factor and he don’t even know he’s got it.’

I’m starting to scoot him into places. Sort of as an afterthought so nobody was watching. Well then one day I told Vince [McMahon], I said, ‘That guy right there is gonna be your next super, superstar.’

‘You kidding me, Jake?’ He said, ‘That guy, he’ll never make it past 5th, 6th match. He’s not a main-eventer.’ I said, ‘The f*** he ain’t.’ He said, ‘Do you think so?’ I said, ‘Yeah I think so,’ and we tried the thing and I guess it might’ve worked huh?”
