When possibly the biggest interview within WWE took place earlier this year, few members of the WWE Universe were aware of the fall out it caused behind the scenes.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed that an individual who was very close to the situation explained that there was a huge argument between Vince McMahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin as a result of Austin's topics for the interviewee; Triple H.
During the highly-interesting discussion between two big names of WWE, a range of subjects were covered including the futures of Brock Lesnar and CM Punk, as well as why ex-Diva Chyna has not yet been inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.

It was the topic surrounding Chyna that appears to have been the catalyst for McMahon and Stone Cold's falling out as it meant the history which Triple H and Chyna had was brought up, which was not going to be well received by The Game's current wife and Vince McMahon's daughter, Stephanie.
Understandably, having been the subject of a heated conversation, Chyna proceeded to reply with her own version of events regarding occurances between her and Triple H, with allegations that he had once hit Chyna coming to light.

With her delayed induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame becoming more apparent, it was rumoured that Chyna's decision to take up a career in the adult entertainment industry following her time at WWE was a defining factor in why she is not yet part of the prestigious club.
This caused many to speak out in Chyna's defence about her career decisions and made what should have been an exciting and interesting interview, turn somewhat sour.
These reasons for Vince McMahon's fall out with Stone Cold therefore may well contribute to why Austin has been replaced by Chris Jericho for a number of upcoming interview shows on the WWE Network.
With Jericho lined up to be the host of the next interview show, which will see John Cena as the focal point, it has been said that this issue could well be why Steve Austin did not make the appearance at WrestleMania XXXI many had expected.
Although there was reason for these two integral figures of WWE to have a disagreement, the WWE Universe can only hope that they will settle their differences soon.
WrestleMania 32 is set to take place in Austin's home state of Texas next year and if this fall out with McMahon was to continue until then and hinder any chance of Stone Cold making an appearance, it would doubtlessly be a great shame.
