Stone Cold Steve Austin has named Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair as two WWE legends he wanted to face in WWE. While Austin never faced Hogan, he was involved in three matches with Flair. However, Austin further explained that he wanted to face The Nature Boy in his prime.
Stone Cold Steve Austin, on Busted Open Radio, was asked by Tommy Dreamer about a dream match that he wanted but never happened. The Texas Rattlesnake said he would've loved to have faced Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair in his prime in the ring.
"Yeah, it would have been great to go against (Hulk) Hogan. He was still pretty primed up, he was on the backside but could still do it. My headspace wasn't in the right place, but certainly I could have done it. It would've been a different match to what he had ever had. Flair - I wish I could have worked with Flair in his prime. I worked with him the night before I walked out in Atalanta, over doing the favors for Brock Lesnar. We worked in a cage that night and I was happy as a kid in a candy store."
Austin narrated how Flair had blades all over his fingers. The match between Austin and Flair happened on an episode of RAW in June 2002.
