• Steve Austin Reveals The Impact Of The Undertaker’s Entrance On Him
During the latest episode of Broken Skull Sessions with Kane as the special guest, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin recalled the impact of The Undertaker’s entrance.
Below is what Austin said:
“We were out there on the damn road somewhere and I don’t remember where we were, but this is when they use to smoke up the entrances that was the only effect we had other than a 20×20 ring and hell, I was working with The Undertaker.
I was just kinda catching my groove a little bit and they smoked up the arena and there I was in the ring and here he comes. Nothing near the proportions of what you’ve got here [at WrestleMania].
This guy as he’s coming to the ring I’m thinking, you know because we call it all in the ring, we’ve got a finish, but it was all in the ring. So I’m thinking that I’m gonna do this and that and I’m working this and all of a sudden they smoke it up and here he comes and my mind went blank. I’m watching that big son of a gun walking to the ring and I’m now thinking, ‘Man what was I gonna do?’
He comes to the ring and he does the lights and we just started going, but I didn’t know what I was doing because I was so blown away by his presence.”
