WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recently spoke with SportsKeeda‘s Bill Apter to discuss which current WWE Superstars he believes will become future Hall of Famers.
The “Texas Rattlesnake” name-dropped Drew McIntyre and Sheamus as two names on the current roster that he believes will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame once their in-ring careers come to an end.
Additionally, Austin had some high praise for Theory, saying he can become a big time player in WWE if he keeps his head on straight.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On what he thinks about Theory: “Oh, Austin Theory. I think the kid’s great. Really good look. Stunned him at Wrestlemania 38. I think he’s got a lot of talent and if he keeps his head on straight and keeps his eyes and ears open, he’s gonna have a hell of a run. I just got back from a WWE show. They were just in Reno last week, so I drove down there and saw everybody. And it was a tremendous card. I thought everybody had a damn good match. They had a damn good show.”
On Drew McIntyre and Sheamus: “Drew and Sheamus headlined the card and they had a tremendous main event. They went probably at least twenty minutes in almost like an anything goes match, and they tore the house down. They were a great main event and everybody loved it. So Drew McIntyre is still doing great things. Hell Sheamus, I love where they’ve got him figured right now.”
On the two asking him for advice: “They came back after the match and said, ‘Hey, what’d you think?’ And I said, ‘Come on guys, y’all have got forty years of experience between you. Y’all have been in the business longer than I ever was, so what can I tell you guys? You’re two professionals.’ So two super great human beings and two Hall of Famers. All these Hall of Fames that I’ve been in? They’ll go in as well.”
