Stone Cold Steve Austin recently interviewed the NWA fighter Eli Drake in the latest edition of The Steve Austin Show. During the conversation, Austin talked about the first time he was given a promo written by WWE, when he returned to the ring after a neck surgery in 1999. Previously, at the Rattlesnake were always given guidelines on which he improvised a lot . Austin recalled sitting in a room with Vince McMahon and was not happy at all when he was given the promo. Austin made sure to let the Chairman know he didn’t like it at all.
Stone Cold, in fact, recalled having received a sudden call but, when he was presented with the promo, he wanted to almost get his hands on Vince.
