WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. However, he wasn’t always as successful as Austin made his WWE debut as the Ringmaster.
It seems Vince McMahon wasn’t that impressed with Austin at first. While speaking on A&E biography of Stone Cold Steve Austin, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon revealed his first impression of Steve Austin when he made his WWE debut.
McMahon revealed that he thought Steve Austin was a waste of his time.
“My initial impressions of him was, ‘He’s wasting my time.’ (smiles)”
After being directionless with the Ringmaster gimmick, Austin pitched his iconic gimmick and went on to singlehandedly usher in the Attitude Era in WWE. The rest is simply history.
