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 he has a huge regret as well.
Steve Austin ushered in the Attitude Era and became the face of the company. His feuds with the likes of The Rock, Triple H and more helped define a generation. Kane also believes his rise to superstardom was an accident.
While speaking during WWE’s latest rapid-fire Q&A session, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin revealed that he regrets walking out on WWE before the June 10, 2002 episode of Monday Night RAW, as he rejected to lose against Brock Lesnar in a King of the Ring qualifying match.
“I disagreed with it [the match with Lesnar]. 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.”
Bubba Ray Dudley ended up losing to Brock Lesnar on that night. Lesnar went on to win the King Of The Ring tournament that year and defeated The Rock for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam. Ultimately, Steve Austin has learned from his mistake and that is what matters. in the end.
