During a recent appearance on Baby Huey & Bimbo Jimbo on 107.7 The Bone, Old School WWF Legend & WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin discussed the finish to Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman at No Mercy 2017, if there can be another era as hot as the Attitude Era & more. Below are the highlights:
On if Brock Lesnar defeating Braun Strowman with just 1 F5 was a good call:
“In hearing that I was surprised in that finish as well. Both guys I consider friends, but they have built Braun to be The Monster Among Men, and to me maybe you got to have something, a couple of F5s or something to put a chink in the armor before the F5 to keep Braun Strowman The Monster Among Men down for a three count. I have not seen the match, but from what you guys are telling me I would probably tend to agree.”
On if there can be another era as hot as the Attitude Era:
“I would love to see another moment in they call sports entertainment these days, but I would love to see a period of time where things just ramp up and become as hot as they were back in the day, and I hope that would be the case. Do I think that will happen?
Man, with the trends and even how people watch football or go to stadiums is changing. Everybody that’s watching anything on TV is either streaming it or changing the way they watch or consume it. So, it’s just a different world.”
On the reactions that John Cena & Roman Reigns get:
“I think it’s just the way those people take those characters. I think heels and faces are still heels and faces. Here’s the thing everybody loves and respects John Cena whether they are hating on him or loving him. That guy has had an unbelievable career.
Roman because I think people think that he was shoved down their throat for so long have a tendency to want to boo him. He’s got ways to go he’s still learning and developing, but Cena you look at the career that guy’s had, it’s been flat out amazing. People appreciate and respect that guy I don’t care what they say.”
