Steve Austin states why he missed 1000th Raw

Stone Cold Steve Austin released a statement on his Broken Skull Ranch Blog as to why he did not appear on last night’s 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw. The statement is listed below.


“On July 23, 2012 WWE celebrated the 1,oooth episode of Monday Night Raw.  I watched the show from my home in Los Angeles.  After watching the show, I got on my Twitter account, @steveaustinBSR, to read responses to the show.  There were many people blaming Vince McMahon and the WWE for not having SCSA on the show.  And there were some folks who had some very negative things to say about me, personally.”

“The reason I did not attend RAW 1,000 was because I underwent a major knee surgery on my left knee on July 2, 2012.  Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, CA performed the surgery.”

“The surgery  was a complete success.  I am currently three weeks post op.  I began physical therapy a few days ago.  I had a world class surgeon and a great medical team working on me.  I am now working with a top notch PT team.  I am still on crutches and will probably lose the crutches in another week.  Then I will be in a custom knee brace much like the braces I wore in the ring for 9-12 weeks.”

“STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN IS A 100% ASS KICKING MACHINE.  There was no way I was going to limp down the ramp on crutches for RAW 1,000.  It was time to get my knee fixed.  The decision to no-show RAW 1,000 was made by me and no one else.  I have always taken pride in making my shots and have never faked an injury or illness.  Pro Wrestling is a tough game and it was time to pay the piper for some of the damage I incurred in the ring.  No gripes.  No complaints.”

“To the fans that were hoping to see SCSA, I’m sorry I missed the show.  I would have loved to be there under different circumstances.  I normally keep my personal business to myself, but due to feedback and incorrect speculation, I have posted this blog and given the 411 on why I was not at RAW 1,000.”

“I will post more blogs about my PT and recovery soon.”

    They could’ve at least did a via satellite appearance of Steve, that isn’t too much to ask right? They did that many times with that hollyJEW sellout Dwayne Johnson, why not do it for Steve?

    HollyJEW sellou, that was one of the most idiotic replies I’ve ever read on here. Be careful, your maturity is showing. No mater how you feel about him, he followed his dreams. Haters are always going to hate.

  7. Daniel says:

    They still could have done a live via satelite clip or something but eh, good to know he had a legit reason

    Some of you are tools…the man gave us his life for 20 years. He doesn’t owe anybody anything.
