During an interview with Forbes, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin was asked about the Mount Rushmore of his favorite career moments.
Below is what the 6-time WWF Champion said:
“Man, I would’ve to go to the match part of it, like working with Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, who put me on the map with Survivor Series and (WrestleMania) 13.
Working with The Rock. Anytime we laced them up, he brought out the best in me and I brought the best in him. Those three WrestleManias we had were some of the greatest moments that I really enjoyed.
All those Vince (McMahon) moments, driving all those vehicles. But if I really dig back into the stuff that I really loved, it was some of those matches. Like at the Los Angeles Forum working 30-minute Broadways with Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat with no cameras there, and a house that was only a quarter-full. But it was the work, and it was some of those old buildings in the USWA when I was learning and I was still green as grass.
Those are the things that I really remember; the learning periods and spending life on the road and getting into an industry where you truly had to take care of yourself and no one was gonna help you.
And if you were lucky, one of those veterans — and a lot of them did — took me under their wing, under their learning tree and told me ‘hey man, this is what you need to do and you only have so many bumps in your body, so choose them wisely.’
The advice that I was given, those types of things that are the things that really matter to me.”
