Interview: Steve Austin on Who is the Greatest Wrestler of All-Time

TMZ Sports held a recent interview with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and one of the topics discussed included who he considers to be the greatest professional wrestler of all-time.

“[Ric Flair] is the absolute greatest of all-time to ever lace-up a pair of boots and the greatest world champion of all-time. Hulk Hogan was such a huge name in putting wrestling on the map and taking it to the heights that he did but Ric Flair is someone that I hold near and dear to me. Many people know Ric better than I do but we’ve become such good friends and I have such admiration for him. I’ve been down in the dumps too and I’ve had guys reach out to me and it’s helped me when I’ve been in a bad time. Any kind of support that I can be there for Ric, I’m glad and proud to be his friend. I wish him nothing but the best. He’s a very special human being. They broke the mold when they made that guy.”
