• Stone Cold Steve Austin Reveals His Biggest Regret In Pro-Wrestling

During a recent WWE Q&A session, WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was asked which Superstar he’d like to face if he came out of retirement.

Austin said Brock Lesnar.

In 2002, Austin vs. Lesnar was scheduled to happen on the June 10th episode of RAW, and it was supposed to be a King Of The Ring qualifying match. Lesnar was booked to win this match.

However, Austin wasn’t happy that WWE was giving away such a big match on free TV without any build up, so he ended up leaving, or as others said, “took his ball and went home”.

Austin said the following about this 20-year-old incident during this Q&A session:

“I disagreed with it. I never like to blow smoke up my a$$, but guys like myself, like Hogan, and a few others, they don’t grow on trees.

So you want to sacrifice what you’ve built up in me? And with no buildup? But that walk out was still total stupidity and hard-headedness on my part.

I should have shown up, and that is my biggest regret in the business of pro wrestling.”

When Lesnar appeared on Austin’s podcast on the WWE Network, Austin cleared it up that he had no problem in losing to Lesnar, but thought the match should’ve been on a PPV with proper build-up.
