Stone Cold Steve Austin says he injured himself punching Rusev at WrestleMania 32

Published 1 Comments

WrestleMania 32 was full of WWE legends coming out of the woodwork to get cheap pops from the 100,000 fans inside AT&T Stadium as well as the millions watching at home. 

The Rock beat Erick Rowan in about seven seconds in a match that was made purely to take the title of "Quickest ever loss at 'Mania" away from Daniel Bryan, who lost to Sheamus in 18 seconds at WrestleMania 28 and retired earlier this year.

Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, and Stone Cold Steve Austin also made their presence felt in Dallas as they beat down The League of Nations after the heel faction beat The New Day in a match that wasn't for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Somehow, Austin managed to injure himself during that beat down.

Speaking on the latest episode of The Steve Austin Show, Stone Cold spoke about his recent shoulder surgeries and the daunting rehabilitation period that is ahead of him in the coming months.

Austin revealed that he hurt himself while trying to get in shape for 'Mania, and made it worse by punching Rusev a little too vigorously inside the squared circle.

"I f--ked up my shoulder trying to train too heavy and it was a bunch of wear and tear and some bulls--t," he stated.

According to Austin, his surgeon warned 'The Texas Rattlesnake' to go easy on his surgically repaired shoulder while it is healing.

"He goes, 'I don't want you to be too aggressive and mess up my repair', so I'm on my way to recovery and that was all the bulls--t that was wrong with my shoulder,"  Austin added.

And had I not thrown those punches at motherf--king Rusev [at WrestleMania 32], then, it would have been a pretty simple procedure, but, indeed, it was pretty major."

So, remember this kids, even fake punching someone can cause injury. The more you know.
