As noted, WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin spoke with AEW President & CEO Tony Khan on the return edition of his Steve Austin Show podcast this week.
During the interview, “The Texas Rattlesnake” briefly discussed his awkward WWE Network interview with Jon Moxley (known at the time as WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose) from 2016.
Austin explained that they were never able to get on the right track before admitting that he’s felt bad about how rough the final interview turned out.
“For whatever reason, we got off on the wrong track,” Austin said of his infamous past WWE Network podcast special with the former WWE Superstar. “It was a rough podcast. I have been carrying around 1,000 pounds on my back ever since that happened. I felt so bad about that interview and I was leading the interview.”
Austin continued, claiming it was his own fault that the final product between the two for his podcast special turned out the way it did.
“I take the fault of it because I’m there to get people over and make them come off like a million bucks,” he said of his job as the host of the show. “We just came off on the wrong street and just kept taking left turns and never got back on track, well we never were on track. He had his reasons and I had mine.”
The legendary former WWE performer also spoke about past rumors that claimed his regular WWE Network podcast specials were ultimately canceled because of how bad the Dean Ambrose interview / episode came off.
“For all this time I felt like sh*t about that interview,” said Austin. “People said the Stone Cold Podcast got canceled because of how bad that interview was.
“No. I had fulfilled my commitment,” Austin said. “That was why the podcast stopped.”
