WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin stated on a recent episode of WOOOOO! Nation with Ric Flair, that he doesn’t believe that the Confederate flag controversy would hurt the chances of the Fabulous Freebirds being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
“Oh, no, piss on the rebel flag,” Austin said. “That ain’t going to hurt their chances of getting into the Hall of Fame. Just because that was part of their gimmick back in the day, it should not impede their progress as far as being in the Hall of Fame.”
Austin believes that WWE should simply remove any Confederate flag imagery in the videos of the Fabulous Freebirds and all will be good.
“You ain’t got to put that thing in the video footage,” Austin noted. “I think you ixnay [the imagery] and you’re good to go.”
