The Sun in the UK is featuring an interview with WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin where he talks about still watching pro wrestling despite not being involved actively for many years now.
“I just love pro wrestling. I watch all wrestling whenever I can, I watch WWE and I watch TNA. I’ve just always had that passion for the sport. That’s what inspired me to enter the ring in the first place, I watched wrestling avidly as a kid and back then it was guys battering each other in smoke filled arenas and blood flowed freely. And that’s why I still watch WWE and TNA all the time today, it’s entertaining and takes me back.”
Austin also talks about the health of Hulk Hogan and teases a possible return to the ring.
“You know I’m hearing Hulk is talking about getting back in the ring, even though his back is messed up. He was a big guy and all that wear and tear takes a toll on the back and the bigger the guy, the harder it is. But more power to him if he thinks he’s fit to step in the ring. He’s the immortal and only Hulkster, so ultimately he knows his body best. I respect whatever decision he makes. I never thought I’d say it, but when I’m asked about one more match these days I do tend to say ‘never say never’. So don’t rule it out. I sometimes wish Hogan and I had a run. Imagine how good that could have been?”
