• Steve Austin Gives A Huge Compliment To AEW Double Or Nothing Match
During a recent edition of The Steve Austin Show podcast with AEW President Tony Khan as the guest, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin put over the match between Cody & Dustin Rhodes from AEW Double Or Nothing big time!
Below is what Austin said about the match:
“The basic structure, the story that they told, the history, now the blood. The finish at the end, finally, through all the great things that they did, nothing crazy, nothing high-risk.
Basic, but the timing was there and it was all there for a reason, then the finish, then Cody picks up the stick (the microphone) and there it is, setting it up for a tag match and said he needed his brother back.
Here’s the biggest, biggest compliment I can give you about that PPV. That was the most emotion I’ve felt in a professional wrestling match in I don’t know how many years and I believe emotions sell tickets.”
Tony Khan then went on to reveal that he has been a fan of Dustin Rhodes ever since he began watching wrestling:
“Means everything to me. I’ve been a fan of Dustin my whole wrestling fan life. I mean as soon as I got into wrestling, one of the first angles I can remember was the 10 minute challenge and Dustin Rhodes and the angle on Saturday Night’s Main Event where Ted DiBiase tried to take Dustin’s seat and the match they had at the Royal Rumble and then when they jumped to WCW, it was actually when I first started watching WCW, when Dusty and Dustin jumped to WCW and then started working with you.”
