During a recent edition of The Steve Austin Show, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin was asked who he would like to face if he could travel back in time. Below is what Austin said:
“Right off jump street, if I went back to recent history, I’ve got to say Hulk Hogan because he was the biggest draw in the history of the Professional Wrestling business and everybody thought that match between ‘Stone Cold’ and Hulk Hogan should’ve happened a couple of years back. It never did just for whatever reason and I didn’t feel like stepping back in the ring and I think Hogan was ready to go. I wasn’t and so I never got a chance to wrestle the guy and it would have been fun to be in the ring with him. So I’d say Hulk Hogan right off jump street and I would say because Bruno Sammartino was so highly respected back in the day, if I could go back in time to throw another guy on the list, it’d be a guy like Bruno Sammartino.
And then, a guy I would say was probably 20 years before his time was ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham. Now there was a guy that was kind of… he was really the first ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, but they didn’t see that in him back in the day and so Bob Backlund became the champion and ‘Superstar’ went on his way.”
