Steve Austin: "I don't know why WWE doesn't hire AJ Styles right now"

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin is the guest on this week's Ric Flair WOOOOO! Nation podcast. The podcast was recorded last Thursday in New York City.

Flair and Austin talked about stories from the road, Austin's start in the business, Austin teaming with Brian Pillman, the Paul Orndorff-Vader fight in WCW, stories about Blackjack Mulligan and Dick Slater in the locker room, Austin and The Rock's record merchandise numbers, the current state of the business, and much more.

They also talked about AJ Styles and Flair put him over because he's a world class worker and he can do anything. Austin said that perhaps his TNA run has something to do with him not being signed but he thinks WWE could benefit from signing Styles because the WWE locker room needs some more veterans. Austin said, "I don't know why WWE doesn't hire AJ Styles right now."

Flair and Austin talked about Sting joining WWE. Flair and Austin both think that Sting shouldn't have lost at WrestleMania. Flair says that he thinks Kane would have been a good opponent for Sting but now, after watching Kevin Owens wrestle, he thinks that Owens would be a good opponent for Sting at WrestleMania.
