A great review of the WM 13 Bret Hart match podcast

Thanks to Tim Kail over at The Good Worker for his in-depth review of my call on the WM 13 match with Bret Hart on this week’s podcast.

———————-

“I’m laying in a pool of blood. This is the greatest feeling in the world.”

You might read that quote and be unsettled, maybe even concerned for the individual who spoke it.

But, if you listen to Stone Cold Steve Austin call his WrestleMania 13 match, and especially if you watch the match while you listen to his call, when it comes time for Austin to speak those powerful words, you will understand that, “I’m laying in a pool of blood…this is the greatest feeling in the world” is nothing more than the satisfaction one experiences when they’ve done their job exceedingly well and accomplished something very few ever could.

Austin explains, “It was something I looked forward to anytime a booker or promoter asked me, because I enjoyed getting color in a match. I’m not condoning cutting or any other silly stuff, but with respect to pro-wrestling back in that time period, I enjoyed bleeding when it was time to bleed. And it was Bret Hart’s idea to bring color into the match.”

The Broken Skull Ranch Challenge
Sunday, July 6 at 8 pm est on CMT

Meanwhile, back at the ranch..

I’ve been in South Texas for a few days now. Down from Los Angeles way. Drove down in a new RV with my trusty sidekick, Hershey. To those of you who don’t know, Hershey is a 10 year old female Chocolate Lab. She is a helluva navigator, let me tell you..
We made three stops on the way and camped in RV parks in Tucson, AZ., Van Horn, TX., and San Angelo, TX.
San Angelo is home to three very good friends of mine, the Garza brothers, Henry, JoJo, and Ringo. Together they are known as the Los Lonely Boys, one of the most talented bands out there. They lay down their distinct brand of “Texican” Rock and Roll, and mister, they can flat out play.
I rolled into Henry’s house an plugged my RV in and fed Hershey. Then we went inside and recorded my Steve Austin Show podcast you guys heard on Tuesday’s show. The beer was flowing and the guys busted out their guitars on the SAS Unleashed show that will air tomorrow on iTunes and podcastone.com. It is a must hear show, believe me. Some great stories, some great BS, and some great music.
After that Ringo cooked up the best carne guisada I’ve ever eaten. Helluva cook. Homemade tortillas, guacamole, beans. It was awesome. I sat down with the brothers and their families and had a great meal. La Familia for sure.
Henry and Ringo kept my sorry add up till 5:30 the next morning. Ouch. Thank you. The next morning I unplugged my RV and hauled ass to the Broken Skull Ranch.
It’s deer season. My favorite time of year. Old Teddy, @tedfowler361 on Twitter has been working his ass off mowing, filling feeders, and doing general repairs on everything.
Nueces River had out Southen border under water for a couple weeks. Highest I’ve ever seen that river.
Everything here is very green. Deer movement is slow. Seeing lot of does with fawns and sets of twin fawns. Bucks aren’t moving much yet. I did see a helluva 10 point this evening that will go very close to 160. 5.5 year old deer. Great potential.
And as the season goes on, I’ll keep you posted. Gonna get hot and heavy soon enough. When the Rut hits, it’ll be a Pier 6 Brawl!

Don’t forget to check out Steve Austin Show Unleashed tomorrow on iTunes and podcastone.com. It’s a bad ass show with a lot of stories…

STEVE AUSTIN SHOW

Some how, some way, the producers at the Steve Austin Show have reached out to legendary WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin and booked him on the SAS. Stone Cold was one of the most controversial and influential Professional Wrestlers to ever step foot in the squared circle. His fierce, aggressive, and relentless style in the ring was the stuff of legends. With an immense tolerance to pain, and an insatiable desire to be the best, his opponents knew anytime they stepped in the ring with Stone Cold, they better damn sure bring their A game or they would be on the receiving end of a Stone Cold Stunner. Known as the toughest son of a bitch in the history of the WWE, his straight forward, no holds barred, trash talking promos were pure gold.
Steve Austin sits down with Stone Cold as he shares knowledge and tips of what makes a great baby face and heel in the business of Pro Wrestling among other things. Also answering SAS fan questions, this is a great listen with a few other surprises as well. Check it out, for sure.
You can check out the Steve Austin Show at podcastone.com and ITunes.

REDNECK ISLAND PREMIERE!

Tonight is the big night! It’s the return of REDNECK ISLAND on Country Music Television (CMT). This is Season 3 and I can say as much as I loved the first 2 seasons, this season is the best one so far.
Lots of great Rednecks, as always, of course. And this group of Rednecks were a fiery, competitive, hell raising bunch who were ready to go as soon as they landed on the Island.
The challenges are bigger, better, and more spectacular than ever as we raised the bar to make Season 3 an awesome ride.
Tune in tonight after the CMT Music Awards on CMT at 10:30PM/9:30 Central. After tonight the show will move to Saturday night as usual.

HELL YEAH!!!

Steve Austin and Meopta Scope

I will be headed to Houston, TX on Saturday May 4 to the NRA Convention to introduce the Steve Austin Broken Skull Ranch hunting scope. After partnering with Meopta last year we have developed a 4x12x50mm scope that is rugged, clear, sharp, and has tremendous light gathering ability. This is the exact scope I use on my hunting rifle. I will be in the Meopta booth from 2-4pm signing autographs, taking pics, and hanging out. The NRA convention is open to the public and will be at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston.
Meopta has been making precision optics since 1933 and has headquarters and manufacturing plants in the Czech Republic and Long Island, NY.
I am proud to partnered up with Meopta. They make extremely high quality glass and I am looking forward to debuting the scope. At 4x12x50, this scope is perfect for hunting damn near any game in the world.
You can follow me on twitter @steveaustinbsr as well as @MeoptaUSA for details on giveaways and tickets, etc.
The Steve Austin-Meopta scope kicks ass. And that’s the bottom line.

Mexico

It is Saturday April 20 here in Mexico. Saturdays are my days off. I don’t do much on my off day except workout and spending some time just chilling by myself. After long days in the sun on the set of Redneck Island 3, I damn sure stay out of the sun. Towards evening I might get in the pool.
I am also going to record a Steve Austin Show podcast around 2pm. Due to lack of Internet, I will be primarily be answering questions sent in by you. There is still time to send questions or topics to questions@steveaustinshow.com. I have been asked “What kind of questions are you looking for?” Shit, that’s totally up to you. Obviously I get a lot of wrestling questions. But just about anything flies on the SAS.
As I have mentioned the Internet down here sucks ass. I am way behind on current events. I am also out in the field working with the RI3 crew filming out show. Last night I heard they arrested the other ‘suspect’ in the Boston Marathon bombing. Congratulations to Boston’ finest for their perseverance and thoroughness, and to anyone else who helped. My thoughts are with the families of the three people who were killed. And my thoughts are with those who have suffered devastating injuries. This whole nightmare was an absolutely senseless tragedy and the actions of the 2 alleged suspects have shattered the lives of so many good people. It will take a long time to heal from this. And for some, healing may very well be impossible.
I cannot even begin to fathom why people would do this. At this point, was it just the two brothers? Or were there others involved?
It will be interesting to see what comes of the investigation and interrogation of this idiot.
I would also like to send my thoughts and regards to the folks in West, Texas. The devastating explosion at the fertilizer plant has totally rocked this small Texas town. I used to pass through West all the time as I would drive from Denton to Edna to visit home during my college days at NTSU. My best to West, Texas.
Well, that’s that. A somber feeling as I write this blog. So many lives impacted by two entirely different scenarios involving explosions. I am signing off now. Have a great weekend.

PS. Due to no Internet I am late posting this. No questions. SAS completed.

Check in From Mexico

I am in Mexico and the Internet has been sketchy since I have been here. We are working pretty much all day outside filming Redneck Island 3. I was a little late in getting the news about the Boston Marathon. I try to catch a few minutes of the news here and there to hear about what is going on and if there are any clues as to who did this. My thoughts are with those in Boston. Several people here on our crew had family members in the area when the bombs went off. The stories I’m hearing from over there are heart wrenching. I have always enjoyed wrestling in Boston. A great city with so much history and character. Once again, my thoughts are with you.
As far as Mexico goes, the weather has been beautiful, and the Rednecks have been really terrific. They are a fun bunch of folks and are giving it their best. Along with that, our crew is working their asses off. Long days in the sun for sure, but everyone here is happy to be at work and take great pride in their work. I’m happy as a lark as well, as I really enjoy hosting Redneck Island. Every day at work is a good day.
And on another note the Steve Austin Show podcast is doing very well thanks to your support. I have a blast doing these shows and will have an announcement to make regarding a format addition to one of the shows soon after my return from Mexico. As you know the SAS covers everything under the sun. It has been challenging to cover current events, though, because of the Internet issue and long hours filming. I am always receptive to your comments, feedback, ideas, questions, and suggestions for the Show. You can email them to questions@steveaustinshow.com. You can download the show at podcastone.com and ITunes. There is a new show every Tuesday and Thursday.
