Kevin Sullivan, author of such books as the WWE Encyclopedia has been posting excerpts of his interviews with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on his website. In the interviews, Austin recalls working with Mike Tyson, as well as Tyson continually calling him “Cold Stone” Steve Austin by mistake. An excerpt is below:
I enjoyed working with Mike Tyson. And he’s actually more of a historian of the professional wrestling business than half the boys. He really enjoys it, knows a lot about all the World Championship and how the business has come along. He’s somewhat of a student of the game; he was a big fan of the people in the business and that’s what I always respected. I really enjoyed the few times I got to work with Mike Tyson.
