Vince McMahon upset at Steve Austin podcast conversation topic

Published 1 Comments

Within WWE, whenever someone of note upsets a fellow company employee it does not go unnoticed, especially if that person is WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.

As has already been reported, during his chat with Paul Heyman, the tables were turned on Stone Cold as Heyman took the opportunity to ask Austin how he would feel about a potential WrestleMania 32 match-up with none other than Brock Lesnar.

Natural reaction 

While this topic was merely an idea and in essence something which was laughed off, Austin's natural reaction to go into Stone Cold-mode and encourage the thought of the match appears to have upset Vince McMahon.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, McMahon was not happy with how the pod cast ended as there are certainly no plans whatsoever for an Austin vs Lesnar face-off.

It has been said that McMahon has no idea Austin and Heyman were going to round off their interview with Heyman proposing the idea to Stone Cold, and recent announcements have also revealed that this final topic was not intended either. 

Since their discussion, Austin has actually confirmed that it was never his intention to even suggest the idea of a match with Lesnar, which may or may not have come about as a result of McMahon's disappointment.

The Texas Rattlesnake explained:

"I didn't know what Paul E was gonna ask, and he started talking about Brock Lesnar and WrestleMania 32 in Dallas. Of course, boy, I bit hook, line and sinker - Stone Cold mode, starting cutting a half-a** promo."

He added:

"What I did was kind of raised the hopes of people, and halfway kind of half-ass booked myself into a match - which was not my intention."

Unhappy owner 

Even with Austin's explanation following the chat it seems McMahon was still unhappy when really the subject was an idea and simply just that - not something which was ever going to come to fruition and therefore not something which McMahon should be worrying about.

Although Austin may have mistakenly got the hopes up of some members of the WWE Universe, the chances of him being seen on The Grandest Stage Of Them All next year in a ring with Brock Lesnar are minimal.

There is however, a bigger chance that we will see Austin in some capacity, given that the event is being held at the AT&T Stadium in Stone Cold's home state. 

Whatever happens on the night of WrestleMania 32 and whatever is booked in, the WWE Universe is sure to be in for an incredible night as always with this event. For Vince McMahon however, he has a lot more events to be focused on at present which are sooner than ten months away.
