Steve Austin Explains Why a Match With Hulk Hogan Didn’t Happen

Steve Austin Explains Why a Match With Hulk Hogan Didn’t Happen
Steve Austin joined SiriusXM’s Busted Open radio to discuss a wide variety of topics, and the legendary superstar Hulk Hogan came up during his discussion.

During the talk, Bully Ray asked Austin what he thought about the legendary wrestler, and Austin was quick to praise Hogan.

“I’ve always been a Hulk Hogan fan,” he said. “If you watch that guy at over 300 pounds in his prime, 6’6 – whatever it was – the way he would sell; can you imagine trying to get heat on a baby face, you know, and you could get heat on him and he would sell it. He was like an oversized Ricky Morton, Bully. The way he could work a crowd or his sense of work in a crowd was second to none. You talk about his work all you want to, he did work that a big would do. His relationship with a crowd, his ability to read a crowd: second to none.”

When asked about the possibilities of the pair working together or if they could have had a match together, Austin was emphatic in his answer. “Absolutely yes,” he said. “If we’d done it way back in the day, but I was so damn hard headed and worked myself into a shoot, and stylistically, I thought it might have been a little clash because I was caught up in buzzsaw mode, and he was a little bit more on the theatric side, which is perfect. But competitively, I was in a place that the match never happened. But absolutely, could we and should we have.”
