Variety published an interview with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin in conjunction with the new WWE2K14 video game. In the interview, Austin stated he he was ticked off that Tough Enough only last one season back in 2011, and he still doesn’t know why it didn’t get a second.
“When that show didn’t come back, I was pissed off,” Austin said. “It was a great show. The numbers were very good. We had a great time doing it. Why they didn’t bring it back still baffles me to this day because I loved doing that show. It was a great way to be in the business I know and love without having to be in the ring taking lumps.”
Steve also pushed his podcast, which he will be recording with Ric Flair today.
“Whether’s it one hour or six hours or whatever, he’s my favorite pro-wrestler of all time,” Austin said. “I had a wonderful career that I’m proud of, but when I look in the dictionary of pro-wrestler, I see the picture of Ric Flair. I’m looking forward to talking with him about his career in ring.”
Flair said that they would be drinking heavily throughout it, while Austin didn’t comment.
