This kid has potential. There are very few names in the history of professional wrestling who can come close to Steve Austin. Despite having a relatively short main event run at the top of the company, Austin became one of the biggest stars in the history of professional wrestling. While he is a six time WWE World Champion, he is probably better known for his talking skills, and those were on display again.
As part of NWO Week in WWE, Kevin Nash will be appearing on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions. In an effort to promote the appearance, Austin has released a promo as Hollywood Steve Austin, including NWO style presentation and graphics. Austin also uses various NWO catchphrases from different members. The interview airs on Sunday on the WWE Network and on Peacock.
Austin has hosted the Broken Skull Sessions since November 2019 with episodes airing every few months. This has replaced his Steve Austin Show podcast, which ended airing new episodes in 2019. During his career, Austin feuded with the NWO, including Nash, in 2002, with the high point being a match with Scott Hall at WrestleMania 18 with Nash in Hall’s corner.
This is a bit of a head trip. Check out the promo and some of Austin and Nash:
Opinion: If there is one thing that Austin could do as well as anyone, it was get your attention when he was talking. That was the case here as something as simple as hyping up an interview with a retired wrestler was turned into something a bit more memorable. It makes things feel more special and interesting, if nothing else just because of Austin’s pure charisma and energy.
