During an interview with Forbes, WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin compared the legendary Attitude Era (December 1997 – 2001) of the World Wrestling Federation to the modern day style of professional wrestling that we see these days.

Here’s what the 2009 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:

“The performance level has sped up so much, and the guys and gals are doing so much incredible stuff. It’s absolutely unbelievable.

It’s kinda like—being such a big football fan—I was just watching clips of Mean Joe Greene of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I used to be a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. And you watch those greats from back then into what the guys are doing now, and the guys now are just so much quicker, faster.

Of course everything is. The camera’s better.

These days, even though if I look at Attitude Era stuff, I look like I’m in slow motion watching what these superstars today are doing with better cameras and just better athletes.

I really enjoy some of the sequences that they’re able to do. But then that also takes me back to one of the things that I don’t like is sometimes I think there’s too much being done.”

Steve Austin made a name for himself as ‘Stunning’ Steve in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1991 until 1995, then went to Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling for a brief period of time in ’95, before he joined the WWF as The Ringmaster at the end of the year.

He soon got rid of the Ringmaster gimmick and his manager ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase and became known as ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, a character that turned into one of the biggest draws in professional wrestling history.
