WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is featuring a new blog where he talks about getting cussed out backstage by “Dirty” Dutch Mantell during the early days of his wrestling career and why it was the best advice he ever received.
“This ass chewing session was a 9.9 out of 10. I think he actually invented a few new cuss words to use on me. The Dutchisms were relentless, ruthless, and certainly unparalleled at this point in my life. Then he points at a steel chair…You see that steel chair, right there? Yes… I want you to grab that chair and watch every match on the card. That’s the only way you’re going to learn this sh!t. He turned and walked away. He had just given me some of the best advice anyone had ever given to me in the wrestling business. And his delivery and technique were spot on. I got it.”
This and many other stories can be found in Dutch Mantell’s two book releases “The World According to Dutch” and “Tales from a Dirt Road.” We talked with Dutch back in 2010 about his book releases.
