Stone Cold Steve Austin has made an impression on the entire pro wrestling world and at this point, he’s a household name in entertainment as well. One thing’s for sure, Chris Jericho will never forget the first time he ever met the Rattlesnake.
Jericho recently appeared on Steve Austin’s podcast where he told a story about the first time he met Stone Cold Steve Austin while they were on a plane together. It happened back when Chris Jericho was still with WCW and was one of those rare times when wrestlers from multiple companies happened to be on the same flight.
“I met [Austin] on a plane one time and [Austin] gave me the greatest line of all time.” Jericho continued, “no, [Austin was not rude]. It was a great line! I was walking on the plane. It was one of those rare moments when you would see WWE and WCW on the same plane. And [Austin] walked by me and [Austin] said, ‘hey’. I only knew Steve Austin. I was like, ‘hey,’ he was like, ‘hey, there’s a gay guy on the plane.’ I said, ‘really?’ He goes, ‘yeah, give me a kiss and I’ll tell you who it is.'”
There are several ways to make a first impression and Austin certainly picked an interesting way to make his presence known to Y2J.
