• “I’ve told this to his face” – Steve Austin On What He Told The Undertaker About The Deadman Gimmick
During an interview with SK Wrestling, Old School WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin showered major praise for fellow WWE Hall Of Famer The Undertaker.
Austin said The Deadman gimmick would’ve lasted only 2-3 years had someone else portrayed it.
Below is what The Texas Rattlesnake said:
“He was in before 30 years in WWE. That is something no one else would do.
If they had given that gimmick to anybody else, and I’ve told Mark (Calaway) this to his face, it might have lasted 2 years, maybe 3, and it would have just fallen off, and no one would have been able to do it like he did.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime thing where they caught lightning in a bottle.
I knew Mark was going to be a star when we stunk out the Sportatorium, he was working as The Punisher, and I was Stunning Steve.
You know, Mark is an amazing talent, and for him to be able to make that run and make those micro-adjustments to that character, and stay in touch with that fanbase, and always at the top or very near to the top, to keep himself in that position, for Vince to use as he did, a freakin’ master.”
