Steve Austin is a WWE Hall Of Famer and he achieved that legendary status by being himself. If The Rattlesnake wants to speak his mind it doesn’t matter who he needs to talk to, especially Vince McMahon.
While speaking to Pardon My Take, Austin said he got along for the most part with Vince McMahon. They have certainly had their occasions when they didn’t see eye to eye. The fact is if Austin says he’s not working with someone then it’s just not happening.
“Every now and then we wouldn’t see eye-to-eye on certain things. I remember one specific time in Cleveland, Gund arena, they had me booked with someone that I already said, I would not work with this person. And we were in a room, about the size of this one, and man, I let loose with some real colorful language, and I let everybody know exactly what I thought, because I told you, ‘Don’t put me in this situation, you did,’ I said, ‘Now I’m the f*cking bad guy.’ I said, ‘I told you not to do this to me.’ And it was much worse than that.”
It’s unclear who Steve Austin was asked to work with, but he declined. We can only assume that he had very good reasons. If anything, he doesn’t really need to give much of an explanation because he’s Stone Cold.
