WATCH: Steve Austin shares his original idea for 3:16 Day segment on WWE Raw

WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin did an interview with Peter Rosenberg of ESPN for his Cheap Heat podcast where he spoke about a wide range of topics.

During the interview, he spoke about his most recent appearance on WWE television. This was back on the March 16th episode of Monday Night Raw where he was there to do a segment in order to celebrate 3:16 Day.

The show was held in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center, which at the time, marked the first time that WWE has aired Raw from their training facility due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Austin did a comedy segment with Bryon Saxton and read off cards about what the day means to people while Saxton was grading him. Eventually, Austin hit him with a Stunner to close the show.

Austin talked about Vince McMahon’s mindset of the show going on despite the circumstances including proceeding with the Over The Edge event in 1999 where Owen Hart sadly passed away.

Austin stated that doing Raw in front of no fans was tough and strange. In fact, he wanted to do a sit-down interview with Saxton or Jerry Lawler to talk about what the day actually meant to him but WWE had a different idea and that’s what they went with.

Austin also talked about WrestleMania 36 going forward despite the coronavirus outbreak, his feud with The Rock and more. You can watch the entire interview by clicking on the player below:
