Welcome everyone to another episode of The Steve Austin Show. Today’s guest is former WWF superstar Jesse Ventura. He is making the rounds right now promoting his new book, Marijuana Manifesto. They will talk about this book in the second part of the podcast, this one will focus more on his life and wrestling. Let’s get to the action.

Jesse still runs on the treadmill almost everyday, and he still lifts weights.

For four months a year, Jesse goes to Mexico and lives off the grid.

Jesse is not in favor of the wall that Trump has talked about building between the US and Mexico.

Jesse has been married since 1975, and he truly loves her.

Jesse said he has always had the gift of gab. He believes he got it from his dad.

He said Vince McMahon booted him out of WWE because he wouldn’t sell his likeness to Vince. He then went to WCW for the money, because they paid him big money.

Austin said Jesse always treated him well in WCW. Jesse said it was because he liked him and saw a lot of talent in him. Austin said he never forgot that.

The reason why Vince never brings Jesse back for WrestleMania or anything is because he owes Jesse royalties and would end up having to keep paying him a lot for the appearances.

Jesse thinks being in the Navy prepared him for pro wrestling, and pro wrestling prepared him for being in politics.

Jesse used to listen to Superstar Billy Graham religiously to prepare himself for cutting promos.

Welcome everyone to another episode of The Steve Austin Show Unleashed. Today’s guest is former WWE, TNA, and ECW star RVD. He is sure to have a lot of good stories. Let’s get to the action.

Austin recently made a trip to the dentist to get his teeth cleaned. He had been putting it off for a long time, but his wife finally made him go. Now he is an advocate for getting your teeth cleaned by a professional.

They have known each other professionally for a long time, but they don’t really know each other personally. RVD said he knows Stone Cold the character better than Stone Cold the person. They never traveled together or hung out or anything.

RVD always wants to better himself spiritually. He wants to be a better person every day. He likes to work on his flaws. He said his passion for wrestling has lessened as a result of his values changing.

Back when he was the main attraction at ECW, he really thought he was the whole f’in show, it wasn’t just a catchphrase. He now believes that version of himself was very cocky and arrogant, he doesn’t want to be that way anymore.

He had a lot of freedom to express himself, or do whatever he wanted, in ECW.

In ECW they really beat the crap out of each other. At that time, he considered WWE the disney-fied version of pro wrestling. He went to WWE for the money and the business, not for the art of pro wrestling.

Sabu was his mentor. During those times, he would do anything Sabu said for him to do.

In high school he played a lot of sports, but he never played them for very long. No-one saw him as a great athlete. He tried high school wrestling, but he quit because his coach wanted him to cut a lot of weight, his goal was to gain a lot of weight.

In 1997 he was shocked when Taz called him the greatest athlete amongst pro wrestlers. He knew he was a good athlete, but didn’t think he was the best. This inspired him to up the ante on his athletic feats.

He had an academic talent. He had a scholarship to Michigan State, but he didn’t go to go to wrestling school. He was trained by The Sheik. There weren’t many people at The Sheik’s school because it was so brutal, they really beat the crap out of each other.

Nowadays a lot of people are taught safety first, but The Sheik would teach them to protect the business first. He said you could go through his whole school and not realize wrestling is a work.

He was taught when he was in the locker room that he was one of the boys, not a fan. He was told to never ask for autographs, and to never do more than shake someones hand and introduce yourself.

RVD believes there would be much less conflict in the world if people just accepted each others values regardless if they are different.

RVD is a non-conformist. He’s just out there being himself.

He doesn’t listen to a lot of music, but he does like to listen to electronic dance music and reggae because it brings positive vibes out of him.

He got an NXT tryout thanks to Bill DeMott. Dusty Rhodes was a big mentor of his in NXT.

He said at the performance people you could be there from 8am to 8pm some days. The drop out rate is pretty high at the performance center.

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.

Welcome everyone to another episode of The Steve Austin Show. Today’s guest is Nita Strauss, the guitarist for Alice Cooper. Let’s get to the action.

She has been doing ballet and gymnastics since she was a small child. She competed in gymnastics at a very young age. Once she started playing guitar she stopped competing.

The Megadeth song Trust is what really got her into metal music. When she started playing guitar, she started with a Beatles songbook.

She taught herself how to play the guitar. The first time she took guitar lessons was when she got into The Alice Cooper Band. She was a shredder, and they told her she needed to learn some more classic rock stuff.

Steve Vai was one of her biggest influences on guitar. She really loved the virtuoso players.

She loves the story of Jason Becker, who was diagnosed with ALS but has lived longer than they said he would while still being able to compose music. She turned Austin on to his story.

She did not graduate from high school, but she did get her GED. She went to get her GED so she could go on tour and focus on music full time.

She learned early on in her career that she needs to sign a contract before touring. She toured with a band who told her they’d settle up the money at the end of the tour, and she ended up getting nothing.

Austin’s dad played in a country western band. He tried to learn to play instruments when he was younger, but he didn’t practice enough to be good.

She doesn’t drink anymore, but she used to love vodka.

She believes you don’t have to have expensive equipment to have good feeling. She believes in practicing so much that you can shut your brain off and feel the music while you’re playing. She plays from the heart.

She had been drinking and partying for around 15 years before she decided to stop. She cleaned up last year and decided to start working out again. Nikki Sixx and Alice Cooper helped her sober up.

When she first auditioned to be in the Alice Cooper Band, she played the songs in a way over the top manner, which was her style at the time. The guy who looked at the video told her she needed to simplify her style, which she did.

She has formed a new band and they are writing music. She is excited about playing with them. She wouldn’t give us the name of the band though.

Austin told a story about losing his keys the other day. He spent an hour looking for them, and then finally found them in a spot where he had already looked. He said he would’ve felt dumb having to call Uber to take him home.

Alan is the supervising challenge producer on the Broken Skull Challenge. He’s Canadian.

He likes simple challenges. He thinks sometimes it’s not better to make a challenge to complex.

He left home at the age of 15 and traveled the country for 3 years. He then joined the military. When he got out he went back to guiding in the wilderness.

He met a lot of CEO’s and heads of businesses while guiding. He started playing games with them while hiking since a lot of these guys weren’t used to being on their feet for long periods of time. These CEO’s started calling him because they liked these games for team building purposes. He loved team building. He then transitioned into reality television.

His parents divorced when he was ten. He bounced back and forth between households, but settled in with his dad because it was easier, there was no parenting. He did a lot of drugs, alcohol, and smoked a lot cigarettes at early ages. He has since cleaned himself up.

He went into the military because he felt like he needed structure. He just walked into a recruiting office one day and signed up for infantry. Boot camp was a whole other world for him because he wasn’t used to anyone telling him what to do.

Fitness is a way of life for him. He loves Crossfit training. He believes in risk taking to achieve. He is big on tracking your fitness goals. He loves to train on hills.

He thinks people who set up resolutions are setting themselves up for failure by not keeping things simple.
