Steve Austin Claims His WrestleMania 14 Match “Sucked”

Published

on

WWE Hall Of Famer, Steve Austin recently reflected on his WWE WrestleMania 14 match with Shawn Michaels, admitting it “sucked.”

Austin appeared on the Rasslin with Brandon F. Walker show as he spoke about a number of topics, including his most recent appearance for WWE on WWE Raw to celebrate #316Day. This took place in an empty WWE Performance Center, and Austin admitted he originally didn’t want to do a promo at all.


“It’s a tough time for everything but if you’re into something where you’re performing or used to doing it in front of a crowd, it sucks. I went down there and cut a promo when it first happened and I didn’t even wanna do the promo. I wanted to do an interview with Byron Saxton. But I went and did the promo for Vince [McMahon] and playing into a live crowd and it was bad material to begin with, [it] was not good at all.”

The Texas Rattlesnake also spoke about his match with Shawn Michaels at WWE WrestleMania 14 where he admitted he doesn’t think HBK would’ve dropped the title to anyone other than him, as he also confessed the match wasn’t as good as it could’ve been.

“I think if it had been anybody other than me, I don’t know if Shawn [Michaels] would’ve dropped the title and he didn’t appear to want to drop it to me but nonetheless he did and the match was okay. I remember going right up to Vince [McMahon] after the match, before we went to the press conference and, ‘Man that match sucked,’ because it wasn’t what we could’ve delivered. I’ve worked with Shawn all over the United States at house shows and we ripped it up, and he wasn’t in a great place so the match was what it was but it was a means to an end and getting me the championship.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)

The Fight Pit returns tonight as the black-hearted “Psycho Killer” Tommaso Ciampa steps inside against the only remaining member of the WWE NXT roster actually familiar with the dreaded structure, Timothy Thatcher.

NXT General Manager William Regal hosted an official weigh-in earlier today ahead of the highly anticipated battle. Ciampa hit the scales first followed by his opponent, but things very quickly got out of hand when the two came face to face.


Thatcher competed in the first ever Fight Pit, scoring an upset victory over the “Original Bro” Matt Riddle shortly before the later moved up to the main roster.

Check out the footage below. Join us for live coverage of WWE NXT tonight at 8:00 PM ET.
