Austin is joined on today’s show by MLW’s Court Bauer for a look back at WCW’s WrestleWar 1992: WarGames.

Austin informs that after sitting back and watching the War Games match from this PPV, it wasn’t the 5-star match that he remembered it being. There were several things about this match that he felt could have been improved, but nonetheless, it was still a great match and everyone involved in it busted their ass to put on a great show that night.

Austin says he felt pretty comfortable by this point as a singles competitor, even though he was 4-5 years away from becoming a major star in WWE. Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat was just arriving in WCW at this point after a very successful run in WWE, and Austin decided to pick his brain. He asks Steamboat how he could improve as a performer and Steamboat just told him to keep doing what he was doing.

Austin still knew that he was missing something – the ultimate character and/or gimmick. He was working as ‘Stunning Steve’ at this point, but he still wasn’t really sure what was so ‘stunning’ about his character. He wouldn’t truly become a massive star until he adopted the ‘Stone Cold’ gimmick in WWE several years later.
