WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin appeared on this week’s Ross Report podcast with Jim Ross. During the podcast, Austin commented on various topics. Here are the highlights.
On Bill Goldberg possibly wrestling at WrestleMania 32:
“Oh, absolutely bring Bill Goldberg back. I’ve heard some chatter off [of] his Twitter account that he’s looking for a match and maybe that’s just rumor, but man, if there is a guy that deserves a send-off, that is Bill Goldberg. He had a hell of a damn run in WCW. He’s a Hall of Fame guy in my opinion, for his impact on the business. He wasn’t around real long, but his impact was felt big time,” Austin stated. “His run in WWE wasn’t all that it could have been, but he came in at a weird time. But bring him back and put him in there with somebody that he can do his thing with, whoever that is, whether they go 2, 3, 10, 15 [minutes], I don’t know, but it would be fun to see Bill back in the ring. It really would for me.”
On WWE’s booking of Roman Reigns:
“I always thought he’s going to have to go heel first and then kind of walk through the fire just like The Rock did, the way things are going, but Vince [McMahon] seems resolute in going down the road he’s going with, and that’s going with a similar storyline [as] I did with Vince 15 years ago. So, nonetheless, we’ll see how it goes and the way they see it is as a babyface and their number one guy. And it’s interesting because with so many guys out, the number one guy in the [professional wrestling] business, John Cena just going through shoulder surgery, and Seth Rollins being out, these are all people [Reigns] needs to be in the ring with, by the way, I’m just saying, you’re putting a lot of weight on this guy’s back, a lot of pressure on this guy, and the spotlight is clearly on him.”
