Speaking to The Big Lead, Austin gave his thoughts on a number of subjects from pulled pork to his own experiences in professional wrestling.

Austin's comments on the current state of WWE as well as the loss of some of its key wrestlers however were most noteworthy.

It is no secret that the company has had an unfortunate run of late, with huge names such as CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns all having time away from WWE.

Daniel Bryan

Speaking of Bryan's unfortunate injury and time-out from wrestling, Austin said:

"The sad thing about Daniel Bryan is he had just now started getting to a top spot and making good money. It took him 15 years to do that."

He continued: "Hopefully his neck will heal up. He's got his surgery done, and, whatever the process is, I've got my fingers crossed that he can get back to the ring and resume his career."

It is clear the company has struggled without the likes of crowd-favourites such as Bryan, who as Austin said had reached the highest point in his career before being stuck down by a untimely injury which has seen him out of action for months.

Roman Reigns

The Texas Rattlesnake also spoke about Roman Reigns, who recently underwent emergency surgery for a hernia and is also unable to wrestle for several weeks.

During the interview which was carried out prior to Reign's injury, Stone Cold shared his take on the potential Roman Reigns has:

"If you put everybody in a line up and said, 'hey, pick out the star,' you're gonna pick out Roman Reigns. That's just by physical appearance."

He added: "There are no guarantees in this business. Just because someone looks great does not mean he will be a top guy...if he cannot do what he's supposed to do when the bell rings...he's not the top guy."

Stone Cold's views ultimately reiterate the workload WWE Superstars take on by becoming a part of the industry.

In addition, he also emphasised on the potential that the current WWE roster holds for years to come, implying the best is still yet to come from many of them:

"When you look at the average age of the guys on the roster now, it's a pretty young group. They've got a great bunch of guys. They've just got to mature, that's what's gonna make the product better - veterans in the ring."
