Austin Says Jack Swagger Winning WWE World Title “Too Soon”


WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin weighed in on the big title change that will air on Friday Night Smackdown.

As it turns out, he is a big fan of new WWE World Champion Jack Swagger, but he’s also a realist when it comes to putting such a big belt on the youngster.

When asked his thoughts on Swagger cashing in Money in the Bank just days after WrestleMania 26, Austin offered up these thoughts via Twitter.

“Sounds too soon to me. The kid does have a bright future though.”

That seems to be the opinion of a lot of people at the moment.

Austin on Monday Night Mayhem

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin Discusses His Return To World Wrestling Entertainment As Guest Host Of Monday Night RAW (And How The Audience Saw A Toned-Down Version Of "Stone Cold" As A Result Of The WWE's Change To A PG Rating), His Transition Into The World Of Acting (And The Reaction From The Mainstream Press), What His Fans Can Expect In His New Movie "Damage," Why He Does Not See Shawn Michaels Stopping The Undertaker's Undefeated WrestleMania Streak, His Thoughts On Goldberg's Rumored WWE Return, & The Importance Of His Relationship With Jim Ross Through The Years.

Interview Highlights
His relationship with his long-time friend, colleague, & fellow WWE Hall Of Famer, Jim Ross: "He was a tremendous help to me in my career all the way from WCW & calling my matches in the WWE. He was the guy that knew how to talk about 'Stone Cold' in the right way. Everyone knows me & Jim are very close personal friends. He was just in L.A. having some meetings and spent the night over my house. He's a very good friend of mine."

How the transition into acting was for Austin, especially with the mainstream world not taking professional wrestling & sports-entertainment too seriously: "It's funny what some people in the outside world (or "mainstream") think about pro wrestling or the people involved in pro wrestling. I'm humble when speaking about my acting. I think I have talent, and I think I have ability, but I still have to develop as an actor. It's just like what I did in the ring. I was very green but I became very, very accomplished in the 20x20 ring. There's not too many people that's done what I've in that business. I don't think pro wrestling necessarily prepares you to be a great actor, but my pro wrestling career, my largest body of work, and is the reason I'm getting the opportunities I'm getting in the movie world, and I take that very seriously. If someone as a certain opinion about my old business or my love of professional wrestling, then so be it."

The Experience Of Returning To The WWE To Guest Host RAW Two Weeks Ago & How The Viewing Audience Saw A Tamed-Down "Stone Cold" That Evening (As Result Of The WWE's Change To A PG Rating): "Being back in San Diego on Monday Night RAW was a blast, but probably the most fun for me was hanging backstage, sitting at a table, and talking to Triple H & Shawn Michaels, hanging out with The Big Show, and riding back to L.A. with John know just spending time with the guys. I still love the wrestling business, and I always will. It's responsible for where I am today, and I had so much fun doing it. I love being in front of the crowd, and I love my fans, but it's changed a lot since I left. I was a very edgy, aggressive act as 'Stone Cold,' with the language, the middle fingers, & the beer. But it's a PG show now, so I kinda went out there with handcuffs on so to speak. I couldn't use all my tricks because it's more of a kid-friendly show & a corporate- sponsorship friendly show, and I think that's a great direction for the WWE to go in, because I think we pushed the envelope as far as you can push it back in the day when I was running roughshod over everybody. It was exciting."

Why He Does Not See Shawn Michaels Stopping The Undertaker's Undefeated WrestleMania Streak: "When I look at the card, of course I'm looking forward to Bret vs. Vince, but probably what I'm forward to the most is Shawn Michaels vs. 'The Streak.' I don't think the streak will be snapped. Shawn Michaels is probably the best WrestleMania performer in the history of the business. He is going to pull out all the stops and that's probably the marquee match for me."

What a possible Bill Goldberg return would mean for World Wrestling Entertainment: "It'll be interesting to see. His only year in the WWE was what it was, and you guys know what it was. So it'll be interesting to see what he'll bring to the table as far as is there a demand for him. I think with the lack of real depth on the roster, there could definitely be a spot for him. The business has changed so much, and even though Bill wasn't an act that was carved out of 'Stone Cold,' his act is different too, so you gotta go out there & put a little time in the ring. It would take some work for him to make the transition into what is going out in the wrestling world today."

More is contained in this exclusive interview with "The Texas Rattlesnake," including the differences between his latest movie "Damage" & his forthcoming film "The Expendables" (starring Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jet-Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, & Randy Couture), why he has not had the opportunity to speak with Dwayne Johnson in a lenghy period of time, & if he could ever envision himself exchanging notes with The Rock about their respective acting careers, plus so much more. The only place to find "Stone Cold" on WrestleMania Sunday is exclusively on The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network!

Stone Cold Flips Burgers at Harvard Lampoon Event

Source: The Harvard Crimson

Stone Cold Steve Austin made an appearance in Cambridge on Friday to grill burgers and throw back a couple of drinks at The Harvard Lampoon, a semi-secret Sorrento Square social organization that used to occasionally publish a so-called humor magazine.
The Lampoon hosted the event with the former World Wrestling Entertainment star in order "to make amends and celebrate our renewed friendship" (according to invitations left in the House), which was likely in reference to the distribution of 9/11-themed "Lever Forget" t-shirts on Housing Day.

Lured by e-mails sent over house lists inviting students to a BBQ presented by "The Harvard Lampoon and Leverett House," crowds began to form in front of the Lampoon Castle shortly before 6 p.m. Friday. The festivities kicked off when Lampoon editors began to grill burgers and play guitars in front of the colorful doors of the Lampoon Castle. Several minutes later, Austin himself emerged from the castle amid cheers from those Cantabs in attendance.

Rather than flipping wrestlers on their backs, Austin assumed control of the grill and flipped burgers instead. After several drinks, he was also spotted chatting away with students in the crowd.

Leverett House denies any involvement with the Lampoon event.

"Leverett HoCo was never approached by the Lampoon for this event. I had not seen the 'Harvard Lampoon and Leverett House present' invitations, and to my knowledge that invite was not sent over Lev Open," said Leverett House Committe Co-Chair Allison L. Sikora '11.

"In my opinion, this is just another Lampoon prank veiled as an olive branch for their tasteless Housing Day stunt in which they distributed shirts that not only had an inappropriate reference to the events of Sept. 11 but also used the image and name of Leverett House without permission," she added.

Click here to listen to the audio interview!
Best used with Windows Media Player!!!

The following source is taken from

Steve Austin was on The BJ Shea Morning Experience on Steve Migliore passed along the following recap.

I asked Stone Cold if he plans on being at WrestleMania: "No, I’m not going to be at WrestleMania. I really want to be because I at least wanted to go to the Hall Of Fame, you know, rather then the show just because I love the Hall Of Fame so much and I think it’s such a wonderful deal. But I’m gonna be, I’m in New York City right now, I’m fixing to take off to Boston and then I head to LA, Vancouver and then I’m in Seattle for a day so I’m going to miss the event but I’m looking forward to it, I’ll probably have to record it, but I’ll watch it when I get home."

I then asked him if he has ever considered jumping back in the ring one more time. I mentioned how Goldberg brought up Austin’s name when talking about how he thinks that he (Goldberg) has "one more match in him." Here is what Steve had to say:

"You know that would be fun working with Bill. I’ve always liked Bill and gotten along with him. I haven’t talked to him in quite sometime, he’s a good guy. But no for me, I’m going to leave well enough alone, I rode off into the sunset and my health is good right now. I have another couple of matches left in my body but I won’t choose to exercise those matches.

"I don’t want to go out there and be 90-95% of what Stone Cold Steve Austin was because I’m not going to sack and do it all, but I could be close, but that’s not good enough and there’s really no point in it. It’s not going to take me any farther in my acting career so it would be all for naught. I love my fans, I love that business, but I want to be remembered for what I was not for what I ended up being."

Which led me to asking him about his thoughts on guys like Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, guys that are still wrestling:

"You know what, it’s just that their legacy will always be what it is. Ric Flair is my favorite pro wrestler in the world. Hogan’s had a great career and I’ll leave it at that."

The Stranger to be on BluRay This Summer? has reported that the Steve Austin film "The Stranger" will be out on BluRay June 1, 2010.

But... Austin stated via Twitter to a fan who asked about the movie release:
"yes. i completed the stranger 6 months ago. dont know the release date."


HDD is stating that: In a press advertisement, it seems Anchor Bay Entertainment will be releasing 'The Stranger' also starring Erica Cerra and Adam Beach for a high-definition release on June 1.

I checked out the official Anchor Bay Entertainment website myself, and I didn't see anything reguarding a press release or word of the movie.

Stay tuned....

Monsters & Critics Interview with Steve Austin


Steve Austin says “Hell, yeah!” to a new career. The long-time WWE champion wrestler and entertainer is now a bona fide actor. And don’t count him out. He’s working as hard on acting as he did on wrestling he says and I believe him. He has the discipline, passion and smarts to reinvent himself at age 45. Monsters and Critics threw it to the mat in a recent conversation with Austin.

Monsters & Critics - You seem very mindful that a lot of your fans are young so you really tell them some good home truths – like no drinking and driving or going overboard.

Steve Austin - In my day I was a very edgy act and I pushed the envelope every which way, language, fighting, but now I’m a different person. That was a part of my life but being Steve Austin, not Stone Cold, is what interests me now.

M&C - You play a prisoner released from jail who wants to right his wrongs. What spoke to you about the role?

SA - It’s about how far a man will go for redemption. He’s out of prison and trying hard. There’s a young person who needs help and I can choose to help or not. The only route I know is underground fighting so I put my freeodm on the line to help this person. The movie has a lot of cool fight scenes and brutal fights and bloodshed, great fights for my core fan base but it’s a story driven by what’s at stake. It’s what you have to do, it’s not gratuitous.

M&C - Have you seen underground fights?

SA- I am aware that underground fighting exists. A lot of the extras for the film are from that background. But it’s not something I researched for the role. What was required didn’t take great knowledge. But looking into the future, I know I will endlessly research roles.

M&C - I understand you retired when you left wrestling a few years back. It didn’t take, did it?

SA - I thought I was going to retire, and I did for 3 or 4 years. But after realising I was too young to retire, there were things I wanted to do and be a productive human being. I had to do something. So I thought of acting and moved to LA. Early on when I did Nash Bridges, I really enjoyed it. I hate it when I’m not busy. I’m just trying to be as good in this world of acting as I was in my other world.

M&C - Was it hard to give up wrestling?

SA - When I left, I knew it was time to do something else. I was feeling like a million bucks years out of the ring. It was time to do something else physically. My body was telling me to get out of wrestling and be free of pain for ten years, then twenty years, like I am now. I’ve left it behind. I loved being in that wonderful part of my life.

M&C - How are you training for this new life as an actor?

SA - I wrestled and became really, really good at it. I had talent and I developed my skills. I’m there now as an actor and believe I have the talent and timing. I’m working on it, on accessing the inner tools and living in the moment and creating a character and preparing for a role. Just now I’m getting the sense of what it takes. Such is life, you don’t know but the more experience you have the better you are. I’m proud of my work in Damages. And now I’m looking into the future.

SA - All my energy focuses on being as good an actor as I can. I hope to grow a fan base based on my merit as an actor, a new fan base. I want to entertain my core fan base of course, too.

M&C - You just finished working on Sylvester Stallone’s big budget actioner The Expendables. That’s pretty high profile.

SA - I’ve got Damages out and I’m doing reshoots on another movie next week so now I finally have some product out there. Sly’s movie The Expendables is out August 13 and now finally, as long as my films are well received and we do some business, I’ll have something to roll out.

M&C - You went from casual labourer to wrestling superstar and now’ you’re on your way in the movies. What has the journey been like?

SA - It has been a great ride. I grew up 100 miles south of Houston, Texas in a small town and I happened to see wrestling on telelvison when I was seven or eight. I feel in love with it that day. After college, I starved for a couple of years paying dues, and learning the ropes and I became Stone Cold Steve Austin. I worked very hard and then I had to cash in my chips, when I had injuries and start another career. It’s challenging because of the places I’ve been. I expect a lot of myself and I don’t want to be second best. I don’t want to be the greatest actor, but I want to be as good as I can be. I have the time to get there as long as the opportunities keep coming.

Damage is out on DVD now and available in shops and via Amazon.

Stone Cold Causes "Damage" in New Film

Source: SLAM! Sports
Article By: GREG OLIVER - Producer, SLAM! Wrestling

Stone Cold Steve Austin's second movie as a leading man came out Tuesday on DVD. It's called Damage, and it might be familiar to you from the countless promos that ran during his guest hosting appearance on Monday Night Raw last week. He hopes it is the start of a long, busy film career.

"It was a ton of fun," Austin told SLAM! Wrestling about making Damage. "It was the second movie I've made -- had some small parts in some other ones, but second movie I made. I had a blast making it. Vancouver is a beautiful place. It was a learning experience. It was a place to start. I'm very proud of the movie. I'm looking forward to making a bunch more."

Austin stars as John Bricker, an ex-convict who ends up competiting in illegal underground fights after getting paroled. Others in the film include Laura Vandervoort from Smallville, Walton Goggins (The Shield), Lynda Boyd and Eric Keenleyside.

"They surrounded me with some great actors and some wonderful fighters. I just tried to learn as much as I could to carry on to the next project," he said.

One of those "wonderful fighters" was MMA fighter Paul Lazenby. During filming, Austin accidentally broke Lazenby's nose.

"We were doing a fight scene and the camera was on me, and on Paul's back. As I swung a left hook, I got it a little too deep. With my pinkie finger, I pushed his nose about two inches across the other side of his face," recalled Austin. "He just looked at me and said, 'Keep going.' So I kept swinging at him. We laughed our tails off afterward. Paul has since doubled me in my last two movies. We had a laugh about it, but I felt horrible about it. Paul is one tough guy."

On his website, Lazenby didn't blame Austin at all for the incident, which required a good 20 minutes before the bleeding stopped. "I want to stress that this was NOT a case of negligence or incompetence, just one of those things that can happen even between skilled performers when they're swinging their fists at one another," Lazenby wrote. "I don't blame Steve at all, he just made a mistake that even the best stunt performers can make (and one of which I'm certainly not innocent)."

Though a professional wrestler is used to violence, Austin was upset with the incident. "Paul trusted me with his body and his face. I broke his nose. That's unacceptable. I apologized profusely."

There are a lot of elements of Stone Cold Steve Austin in John Bricker. Wrestling fans will see his familiar gait, his cold, brusk delivery and some good fight scenes. It's the heart of gold that Bricker has that might not seem right.

Austin hopes not to be type cast as a tough guy or an action hero.

"At the end of the day, if I make 30 action movies, I'm a happy guy," he said. "If I get to make 25 action movies and five comedies, I'm a happy guy. I want to work. I don't want to be put in a box. But the bottom line is, I want to enjoy the movies that I make. I want to be happy doing that. And I want my core fanbase to enjoy the movies that I make. I also want to grow a new fanbase that never even knew I wrestled. The bottom line is I want to make good movies."

Making good movies will depend, in part, on his improving as an actor. He's trying his best.

"I think that if you watch a great actor's early work, he's better after he's done a bunch of movies than his first movies. Same as pro wrestling; I remember I was very green when I first started, but I turned into a very good professional wrestler -- never technically a great wrestler, but one of the greatest wrestlers to ever step in the ring," he said.

"Same with acting. I just think you can take acting classes, and I think people that do are smart to take them, to get involved with drama, and plays at a very early age. But the route that I've taken, through my background in pro wrestling, it's all on-the-job training for me. I watch and I ask questions to the actors that are on set. I need more and more experience, so I can try to bring up my game and make the characters that I create come to life and be real on screen."

Damage most definitely had a smaller-name cast compared to his next meaty role in The Expendables, which co-stars Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren -- even Arnold Schwarzenegger has a cameo. That film is expected to be released in August 2010.

There were different vibes on the sets, he said.

"You can only imagine there would be a lot more egos on the set of The Expendables. A lot of testosterone, a lot of adrenaline, and a lot of explosions and bullets flying around. But it was a fun experience, and I'm looking forward to the movie. What I saw of the movie, when I was doing my voiceovers, looks phenomenal."

Bret Hart Blogs About Austin


Hart also talked about visiting with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin again at last week's Raw when Austin guest-hosted and making Pat Patterson cry with old Owen Hart stories.

"It was great seeing my pal, Stone Cold, last week on Raw. We talked for some time about our old WrestleMania 13 match and how great it was. Steve looked terrific and was excited about his acting career," Hart said. "I also had a long look back with Kevin Dunn and Pat Patterson after Raw last week. We had some nice reflections on Owen that reminded us all what a tragic loss his passing was. We had some laughs too, and Pat laughed until he cried. All in all, it as a great night for me in San Diego last week."

What Vince McMahon Didn't Know...


Stone Cold Steve Austin was on Loveline (Dr. Drew Pinsky's nationally syndicated radio program) last night, promoting the release of Damage. He was on for the full 2 hours but he only discussed wrestling briefly.

When a caller asked him about his experience hosting RAW this week he said that it was a little weird trying to do his character in a PG world and that Vince was unaware that Austin would be drinking beer in the ring (though Stone Cold didn't know that until after he did it).

Stone Cold participated in answering a number of odd "love" related questions but he did not discuss his personal life in any detail. I'm fairly certain that the show was broadcast live last night west of Colorado, but radio stations east of Colorado that air Loveline will broadcast Stone Cold's appearance tonight (generally that is how Loveline works).

All in all, Stone Cold was pretty entertaining, but it was quite obvious during the discussion that his wrestling days are over and he is focused now on acting (not that anyone reading the site should be surprised by that). When asked if he will be ever returning to the ring, he basically said never say never, but he feel that it is extremely unlikely.

Austin News Haul

Ross on Steve Austin: "I talked with Steve this weekend and he was really excited about being back on Raw and feeling that live audience, adrenaline rush that one experiences. I cannot name any wrestler who better connected with their audience than did Stone Cold Steve Austin and I've seen a few in my day. I even think Steve was going down from LA to San Diego on Sunday, he's still old school, to be ready to rock the house Monday night. Obviously, WWE will be promoting the film 'Damage' starring Stone Cold that will be out on DVD on March 23 which is only 8 days from now."


Tonight's WWE Raw guest host "Stone Cold" Steve Austin said in an interview tonight that he's not sure if he'll be at WrestleMania 26 this year, but he hopes to be at the Hall of Fame.

Austin will be on a publicity tour this week and next week promoting the DVD release of his "Damage" movie that could cause a scheduling conflict on being involved in WrestleMania.

"You know, I don't even know if I'm going to be there. I'm still working on that at least being at the Hall of Fame," Austin said on the Fight Show radio show tonight. "I was so proud to go into the Hall of Fame myself. I'm doing a swing (promoting "Damage") through L.A., New York, Philadelphia, and Harvard for a day."

Austin was asked about his role tonight on Raw and Austin joked that he can't stun everyone in the ring, but he should be involved in some fun angles being part of the show again after being away for a while.

"It's going to be interesting going on Monday Night Raw tonight. I haven't been around for a while," Austin said. "We're about that two-week countdown heading to WrestleMania. It's not like I can go out and stun the whole crew. (laughs) They're building matches and everything's coming to a head. I'm just looking forward to being in front of the crowd and saying hello."

At the end of the interview, Austin was asked about TNA competing against WWE on Monday nights. Austin said he doesn't think TNA, or any other promotion, will be able to compete against WWE, but it gives wrestlers another place to work.

"Competition is great for the wrestling business. I don't know if we'll ever re-create that Nitro-Raw War. They kicked our ass for two years, then we smoked their ass and never looked back and put 'em out of business," Austin said. "I wish the TNA people all the luck in the world because it means more of the boys have jobs and it gives fans an alternative. I don't think anyone will ever come close to really giving true competition to WWE because they're so far ahead of the game, they're rooted in their system, and they're a winner. I wish TNA all the luck in the world, but it's a totally different product."

Austin's Ex-Wife to Undergo Hip Replacement Surgery


The ex-wife of Steve Austin, Jeanie Clarke, who previously worked under the name Lady Blossom in World Championship Wrestling in the early 90s, was scheduled to undergo hip replacement surgery this week in her home country of England, reports the Wrestling Globe Newsletter. Clarke has suffered from osteoarthritis in her back and hip for the past several years stemming from what she believes was a bad bump during a wrestling match years ago.

Clarke is credited with helping Austin develop his "Stone Cold" persona; While he was contemplating a change in gimmick from "The Ringmaster," she told him to drink his tea before it got "stone cold," inadvertently inspiring the nickname. She has two daughters with Austin (Stephanie, now 18, and Cassidy, now 14) as well as another daughter to the late Chris Adams who was legally adopted by Austin.

The best of luck & a speedy recovery to Jeanie with her surgery!

Austin To Help Hart on RAW?

Source: via Wrestling Observer newsletter.

There is talk of using Natalya and David Hart Smith with Bret Hart in the induction for the late Stu Hart at this year's WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. Natalya and Smith would likely do an introduction with Bret doing the acceptance speech.

It remains to be seen how WWE will put Stu into the Hall of Fame, storyline-wise with Vince McMahon being against Bret Hart right now. The feeling is that Steve Austin will somehow be the one to put Stu into the Hall when he hosts RAW in a few weeks.
