WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold”Steve Austin appeared on a recent episode of WOOOOO! Nation with Ric Flair and spoke about various topics. In the interview, Austin brought up Triple H beating Sting at WrestleMania 31. According to Austin, Sting should have beaten Triple H in his WWE debut match.
“I thought, ‘man, you bring Sting in here and you beat him?’ Man, do something where it looks like you’re going to do the screwjob, but then something happens and [Sting] goes over on Triple H, who we all love,” Austin said. “If you’re going to bring Sting in, put him over.”
“I didn’t like that, myself,” Flair added.
Flair would continue that he would have preferred to see him face Kane at WrestleMania 31 and then he would book him to face Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 32.
“Now that I’ve seen this other kid, Kevin Owens, Kevin Owens who is a legitimate heel would be a great opponent for [Sting] in Dallas,” Flair said. “Owens has enough steam on him now and he actually is a heel.”
