Welcome everyone to another episode of The Steve Austin Show Unleashed. There is no guest for today’s show, he decided to answer your questions by himself. Let’s get to the action.
Austin and his wife recently made a trip to visit her brother in Nevada. They left to return home at 4am. They left early to avoid rush hour traffic, but they hit it anyways. Siri was giving him bad directions, and that made him very unhappy. He did finally make it home.
Austin was asked how he could handle getting in the ring with other guys considering his germaphobia. He wanted to be a wrestler, so you do what you have to do. He said these days he would take issue with some of those things.
He was asked why he named his ranch the broken skull ranch instead of the smoking skull ranch. He said he actually thought about it, but he thought broken skull ranch sounded cooler, and it was something he created, not the WWE.
He was asked about a cd he helped created called stone cold metal. He helped pick all the songs on the cd, and they were songs he loved. The cd almost sold 500,000 copies.
He thinks Terry Taylor picked up the Ric Flair style the best. The brawling style he used was his own creation.
He was asked if he was ever in a match with someone who blew a spot and it threw him off his game. He said you just gotta try and cover it up and move on. The Owen Hart piledriver was the only one that really messed him up, because it physically messed him up.
He said he’s been trying to get Arn Anderson on his show for over a year now, but he’s really busy.
He was asked if the incident with Owen hadn’t had happened would it have altered his career. He wishes it would’ve never happened, but you can’t predict what could’ve happened.
He was asked how you prepare yourself for a chair shot or a hardcore match. He always put his hands up on a chair shot. You just gotta be ready, because it’s gonna hurt. He said there is an art to throwing a char, you gotta kinda pull off at the end instead of following through. There’s really no way to prepare yourself, you just gotta do it.
When Jim Johnston wrote Stone Cold’s glass breaking music, Bulls on Parade by Rage Against The Machine was the inspiration. He said it was cool too when the guys from Disturbed did his music.
He was asked why sometimes they’ll play someone’s theme music when they run out to help a friend during a beatdown. He said he understood the point, but it is a television show. The music is a way to get an easy cheap pop.
He was asked about the recipe for the margarita mix him and Ted Fowler use. It’s Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix.
He was asked if the curtain call would’ve never happened, what were the plans for him. He said there were no plans for him. He’s glad it happened, because it made his career.
He loves a ton of blues songs. Stevie Ray is one of his favorites.
He was asked what his favorite podcast has been. He doesn’t really listen to his podcast, but he loves listening to the Steve Austin vs. Mr Fly bit.
He was asked about his 2001 run. He said he doesn’t remember much of his career, and doesn’t remember much about his 2001 run.
He was asked about the new Ford Bronco. He’s worried they’ll make it to small.
He was asked what selling on the run means. It’s when you are backpedaling while selling, or at least moving while selling.
He was asked for advice on buying an RV. He said a bumper pull works well.
He was asked when he realizes that he’s having, or had, a great match. He said you know it during the match, and sometimes during the build to the match, but you don’t really think about it until you get to the back. He said you also know when you’re stinking up the joint.
He hasn’t done much bow hunting, but he does still enjoy using it to shoot targets.
His favorite college football team is Alabama. He does love Ohio State as well, and really likes Urban Meyer. He’s been following Michigan since Jim Harbaugh got there.
He said Brian Pillman never told anyone he was transitioning to the loose cannon character.
He was asked how he was able to sleep after shoulder surgery. He said your first week out you won’t sleep at all. He had to sleep kinda sitting up by putting a couple pillows on your back.
He said he can’t bring himself to vote for Hillary Clinton.
His favorite high school football memory is when his head coach put on a helmet and told Austin to hit him. He plowed over his coach.
He said he’s only heard of one time where someone bled during a match and it was a medical emergency. This happened in ECW.
He was asked if he would sell his Intercontinental Championship belt. He will never sell that belt.
Austin said the second fall from the cell during the Hell in a Cell match between Mankind and Undertaker wasn’t planned. He doesn’t know how they planned on getting down from the cage had that not have happened.
