Recently on The Steve Austin Show, WWE Hall Of Famer Steve Austin talked about how WWE wanted him to wear a singlet as ‘The Ringmaster’ when he first signed with the sports entertainment company. Obviously, that didn’t happen and shared the details on what changed. Here is what he had to say:
“Man, they wanted me to wear a singlet. I said, ‘I ain’t wearing a singlet.’ And when I debuted, I wore those green trunks for a few episodes of TV and I still had my Hollywood Blond boots because I asked them about what I needed to bring. They said, ‘naw, man, just bring your old boots,’ so I knew they didn’t have [any] plans for me.” Austin explained, “so anyway, when I knew they really weren’t paying attention, I started wearing my black stuff and I got my black boots and turned it into what I turned it into.”
