Jim Ross comments on Steve Austin not appearing at Raw

On his blog, Jim Ross commented on Raw 1,000 and Steve Austin not appearing on the show.

“We all missed Steve Austin not being there but with Steve under going major knee surgery just a few weeks ago and still hobbling around on crutches, it just wasn’t in the cards. I can assure you from talking to him on numerous occasions that he wanted to attend but it simply wasn’t physically feasible. Steve’s knee was in deplorable shape from the years of wear and tear on the football field and in the ring. Flying in an airplane for a few hours isn’t the smartest thing a guy can do in that condition especially so soon after surgery and before rehab has commenced. Most fans understand while a handful of jackasses who go into business for themselves don’t.”

    I agree totally on the flying thing, remember what happened to Chris C.

  2. Drew says:

    Austin got the surgery so that he can return to face CM Punk!

    @ 50 you’re a dick

  4. NeonJack says:

    That is an absolutely natural explanation and hopefully Steve’s knee heals strong and clear so that we can see SCSA for many, many more milestones in WWE, maybe even for 2000!

    @loo thanks I love it :>

    @NeonJack – You do realize it took 19 years to get in 1000 episodes….so that means Austin would be giving a stunner to someone when he’s in his mid 60’s….??! That would be interesting to see. @loo s – don’t ever mention the word dick when 50 shades of gay is here. Makes things uncomfortable for certain people.

  7. Steve says:

    It wouldn’t of been hard to make a video on Tout?! Twitter? Facebook? YouTube? They make a big deal about social media, and he couldn’t even make a video. Sure.

  8. Daniel says:

    Yeah I agree Steve, I don’t get why they didn’t have him appear in some capacity like that. Even a surprise tout thrown in with the fans lol like the Kofi tout.

  9. Joe says:

    Videos arent really an Austin thing.

  10. Jack says:

    Joe, you’re right. And besides even if he did make a video, some people would still whine. It’s just like JR said, there’s always a few.
