OnlineHost: Tonight's guest is the KING of the Ring Champ!!! Stone Cold Steve Austin!!
OnlineHost: Get ready for Stone Cold Steve Austin!
OnlineHost: Ladies and gentlemen..please welcome Stone Cold Steve Austin!
OnlineHost: Congratulations on winning the '96 King of the Ring!
WWFLive1: Steve: It's your pleasure to have me online...send your questions in.
Question: You said in a prior AOL interview that if Pillman came to the WWF you would consider teaming with him. What is the status now??
WWFLive1: Steve: I think obviously Pillman needs to get healthy again. Other than that, I am concentrating on singles at the moment but maybe sometime down the road.
Question: Steve, how is your mouth..stitches?
WWFLive1: Steve: It healed up fine...I still have a knot in my lip but that will probably go away.
Question: Steve, how do you get along with Vince McMahon?
WWFLive1: Steve: I get along with him just fine.
Question: Why did you forfeit the match to Aldo on Superstars?
WWFLive1: Steve: Well I think everybody who watches wrestling knows I would have beat him had I decided to wrestle him. I don't feel I should waste my time with Aldo Montoya.
Question: Do you still think Jake is washed up...He has been very consistant over the years?
WWFLive1: Steve: Years ago he was consistent...consistently hitting the bottle. These days he's consistently thumping his bible. Next time he gets in the ring with me he's going to pay.
Question: Why do you shave your head?
WWFLive1: Steve: Why not?
Question: What are your thoughts on Marc Mero and your upcoming match?
WWFLive1: Steve: I think Marc Mero is a great athlete...I think Sable will end up being a distraction to him. I beat him the first time, I don't know why I wouldn't beat him the second time!
Question: Steve, If I may call you Steve, You NO DOUBT deserve a push in the WWF...Do I smell The Intercontinental Title..Even the WWF Championship Title..I think you should tell Vinnie Mac that you're the best heel to hit him since BDC..
WWFLive1: Steve: Truthfully, I don't know what's in store for me. I'm just going to wait and see what happens.
Question: Are you a beetter wrestler know that DiBiase is gone?
WWFLive1: Steve: Definitely. I never like to split time with anybody in the ring or in front of the microphone.
Question: STEVE, What do you like to do besides wrestling?
WWFLive1: Steve: Deer hunt, bird hunt, fish, ride motorcycles and 4 wheelers!
Question: What is the best match you have ever been in?
WWFLive1: Steve: That's hard to say...a few with Ricky Steamboat and a few with the Hollywood Blonds against Rick Steamboat and Ric Flair.
Question: STEVE, Who did you look up to when you got into wrestling?
WWFLive1: Steve: Dory Funk Jr. Cowboy Bob Orton Jr., Adrian Adonis, Jake Roberts, Ric Flair when he was in his prime and Dick Murdoch...just to mention a few of my favorites.
Question: How do you think the Warrior's suspension will effect the WWF?
WWFLive1: Steve: I don't have a clue.
Question: Who is the one wrestler today that you admire the most?
WWFLive1: Steve: Probably myself :)
Question: Who is your best friend in the WWF?
WWFLive1: Steve: My travel partner is Goldust, and Duke Droese...other than that I pretty much stay to myself.
Question: What are your feelings about WCW?
WWFLive1: Steve: They seem to be on somewhat of a roll right now...I don't think that they can sustain the momentum they have right now. Their production values are still pretty low. They are still a second-rate program.
Question: Besides yourself, who do you see as the dominant force in professional wrestling today?
WWFLive1: Steve: Obviously Shawn Michaels in the WWF.
Question: What would you be doing today if you wern't in wrestling?
WWFLive1: Steve: Televangelist...:)
Question: If you could run a wrestling ognization what would you do different?
WWFLive1: Steve: I wouldn't run my own wrestling organization.
Question: How many hours a day do you train for wrestling, Steve
WWFLive1: Steve: I'm at the gym about an hour and a half per day...that's about it.
Question: Stone Cold, who can claim responsibility for training you, one of the greatest wrestlers of all time?
WWFLive1: Steve: I went to Chris Adams Wrestling school in TX ...I more or less learned everything in the ring.
Question: Steve, who do you consider the most underrated wrestler in the business?
WWFLive1: Steve: It's tough to say....I don't know.
Question: If you are so proud to be the king of the ring why don't you wear the crown
WWFLive1: Steve: If I go to the ring in a pair of black trunks, black boots, I think anyone can tell that I don't put alot of stock in costumes...I leave all the glitzy glamour stuff to the other guys. I didn't get into wrestling to sell dolls, I got into wrestling to wrestle and that's what I do.
Question: What do you think of Kevin Nash and Scott Hall leaving the WWF?
WWFLive1: Steve: I think they made the best business decision that they could make. I don't know the technicalities...but I guess they did what they thought they had to do.
Question: What are your thoughts on Sid returning to the WWF?
WWFLive1: Steve: I wonder what will happen this time...
Question: Stone Cold,what are your perspectives of The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels?
WWFLive1: Steve: I think he's a great athlete and a great wrestler...I'd like to wrestle him one of these days at a major pay-per-view.
Question: What advice do you have for aspiring wrestlers trying to break into the business?
WWFLive1: Steve; Go to college. Get a real job.
Question: Are you ready for another battle with Savio a.k.a. the Caribbean Kid?
WWFLive1: Steve: Well, I think I have already proven that I am a better wrestler than Savio...I would just as soon move on to another victim.
Question: Why are you so conceeded? You have only one major title?
WWFLive1: Steve: That's a pretty stupid question...in WCW I was the World Television Champion twice, I was a US champion twice, and I carried Brian Pillman single handedly to the World Tag Team Titles. So, obviously you don't know what you are talking about.
Question: Steve, what do you think about the ECW?
WWFLive1: Steve: It's a little one-dimensional. Alot of guys work very hard up there but in the end, every show is pretty much the same.
Question: Do you think the Goldust character has gone over the edge?
WWFLive1: Steve: That depends on what you think over the edge is.
Question: STEVE, How have you changed over the years as a wrestler?
WWFLive1: Steve: I don't know that I have really changed...It's just that I got held back in WCW. It got to be a little frustrating. After a serious arm injury, in recovery and being with a new federation I feel like I am starting all over again.
Question: Do you think that you will ever look for another manager?
WWFLive1: Steve: Definitely not!
Question: Steve, are you friends with Mankind?
WWFLive1: Steve: Yes, in fact I am.
Question: Does Steve Austin have any regrets in or out of wrestling?
WWFLive1: Steve: Yes, I should have told WCW to piss off before they fired me over the phone.
Question: If you whip Mero at In your House..whats next?
WWFLive1: Steve: I have no idea.
OnlineHost: Good luck at In Your House!
WWFLive1: Steve: Austin 317 says I'm going to whip Mero's ass!
OnlineHost: Well....just a little bit conceited..wouldn't you say?
