• “That would have been magic” – Steve Austin On A Feud With WWF Legend
During an appearance on the WrestlingRambles89 podcast, WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin talked about Randy Savage and expressed his disappointment of never having a proper storyline feud against The Macho Man during the Monday Night Wars, when both were main eventing in opposite promotions on opposite TV channels (USA Network & TNT).
Here’s what Stone Cold had to say:
“That would have been magic…When Randy was at his hottest and he was getting hot down there in Memphis and then Vince got him up in the WWF. And that’s when he had his hellacious run that he did.
And when I got hot in WWF, he was gone down in WCW. So, we just never crossed paths when the window could have happened for us both to jump through and enter into a high-level intense program.”
Austin wrestled Savage once, back on the May 27, 1995 episode of WCW Saturday Night, before the Monday Night Wars started a few months later. Back then, he was still known as mid-carder ‘Stunning’ Steve Austin.

A year later, Austin became known as ‘Stone Cold’ in the World Wrestling Federation and the rest is history.
