Steve Austin on the Survivor Series car angle: “Yeah, about ’99 because I had to get my neck fused. I was gone for about a year … You caught the worst part of my career! Me being clipped by a god dang car! s–t, that was the worst storyline I was ever involved in. But we had to come up with a way so that we could get my ass out of the way. That was ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, I had to get my neck fused up and that was a suck-ass angle.”
Austin on his Ringmaster gimmick: “I had a similar gimmick, not gimmick. I had a similar name [WALTER’s ‘The Ring General’ nickname], ‘The Ringmaster’. If you talk about bulls–t… Hey man, that gimmick sucked ass!”
