Steve Austin Comments on WWE’s RAW Reunion

WWE interviewed “Stone Cold” Steve Austin after Raw Reunion.

“It felt great to be back out there. I’m not a sentimental guy, but to go out there with my brothers and sisters, I hope they continue to do this every year because I will continue to show up. We’re in the entertainment business so you want people to tune in so we can take you off your problems. But we’re dealing with the same problems when we’re out on the road [working]. When you get a bunch of us together, we’re wired specific to the task at hand. People wired to go up and down the road in this business, it’s a grind. To go out there with your peers and people doing what you’ve been doing and trying to entertain people, it was fun.”
