Steve Austin is a huge fan of what Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns are doing in their partnership, and he has discussed the alliance and more in a new interview. Austin spoke to Sports Illustrated about a new play promoting the premiere of Straight Steve Austin season two, and you can check out some highlights below:
On Heyman’s alliance with Reigns: “It’s such a great package. They complement each other so well. Roman can work his ass. He’s always been very solid in the ring, but now there’s that bond and that chemistry between Roman and Paul. This is what Paul Heyman does. He makes everyone he’s much better with. It happened to me too. If you want to suspend your disbelief, you can’t help but believe that he is Roman’s rock of knowledge. The presentation, the package and the chemistry between these two feels like money. ”
On his goal with Straight Steve Austin: “My goal is to showcase my guests and make the process easier. the Directly the show lasts 30 minutes but it takes all day to film. All the guests were wonderful. Every time we filmed I laughed my ass off. I’m really happy with how it turned out.
On Charlotte Flair appearing on the show: “Anyone who knows the wrestling world knows that my all time favorite is (the Nature Boy) Ric Flair. And although I’ve known Charlotte for years, it’s the longest I’ve ever spent with her. We had so much fun during this episode. She’s polite, she’s a star, but I think this episode also shows how deep she is of a person outside the ring.
Upon retirement: “If my problem weren’t with the neck and neurological problems, I would have done the same as Brett [Favre] and continued. When I got away from pro wrestling, I had to make the call. The doctor did not make the call. Vince McMahon did not make the call. It was the most difficult decision I had to make, a decision that took me a long time to come to grips with. It was so hard for me to leave the company, so I can understand why Brett chose to hang on for as long as he could. He’s one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. It’s another episode that I really hope people enjoy watching. “
