Honorary mention: Wade Keller on The Steve Austin Show

Wade Keller is one of Steve Austin’s most frequent guests

The Texas Rattlesnake calls PWTorch founder Wade Keller at least once a month to sit and break down PPVs and even NXT Takeover specials. The pair’s styles suit each other and they find themselves agreeing with each other more often than not.

However, both are experts in their own ways, and it is extremely interesting to see their take on the current WWE product and give an insight into the things that fans may miss out on.

You can listen to the pair break down NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II, and Summerslam here

#10 Dave Meltzer

Steve Austin went head-to-head with Wrestling’s top journalist

In the world of Professional Wrestling, there is no journalist more respected and trusted with sources than Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Meltzer has been in the business for 3 decades, and as mentioned, is extremely well-revered. His star ratings on matches are highly referenced for the quality of matches as well.

In episode 67 of the show, Austin and Meltzer discuss various topics such as Meltzer’s introduction to the business, his storied career, The Montreal Screwjob, and why Meltzer once gave Austin’s matches -3.5 stars!

#9 Steve Austin vs The Fly

What is Steve Austin’s beef with flies?

This is as bizarre as it sounds, but it is just as entertaining as well. An entire podcast dedicated to Steve Austin ranting about flies and interviewing “Mr. Fly”(himself in an automated voice). Austin and Mr. Fly talk about origins and the long-standing feud with human beings, among other things.

Mr. Fly also never seems to miss a chance to insult the Texas Rattlesnake.

#8 Chael Sonnen

Austin always focused on bridging the gap between Pro Wrestling and MMA from the get-go

Chael Sonnen was one of the original trash talkers of MMA, being the definition of his time of “putting butts in seats”. One of Austin’s first interviews was with the MMA legend shortly before his Light Heavyweight title match against Jon Jones at UFC 159 (which ended up being a losing effort).

Austin and Sonnen dig into both the worlds of MMA and Pro Wrestling and bridge the gap between the two. Sonnen has had Austin as a guest on his own podcast titled You’re Welcome as well.

#7 Roddy Piper

The late, great Roddy Piper with The Texas Rattlesnake

Austin had a two-part interview with the late, great, Roddy Piper. The two parts were Roddy telling the epic story of his life and career in WWE. One of professional wrestling’s greatest legends was part of one of the most entertaining podcasts.

#6 The Big Show

The Network version of the interview is considered to be the best of the lot.

Steve Austin interviewed Big Show on the WWE Network earlier this year on the Stone Cold Podcast. However, this episode is exclusive to his own podcast, and the Big Show lets loose on several interesting experiences and stories. The journey of the World’s Largest Athlete is unlike any other.

#3 John Cena

Austin has always been a vocal supporter of John Cena

Austin and John Cena were and are the faces of the WWE. That is perhaps why Austin has always backed Cena because he knows the pressure that comes with being the company’s top star. A couple of months before Wrestlemania 30, Cena and Austin went head-to-head and spoke about the Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania XXX, and the business in general.

You can listen to the full interview here

#2 Shawn Michaels

The Wrestlemania XIV bout between the legendary pair was significant

Shawn Michaels was the top star of The New Generation Era(along with Bret Hart), while Austin was the top star of the Attitude Era (along with The Rock). The two squared off at Wrestlemania XIV that saw a passing of the torch, and the dawn of the Attitude Era.

Shawn Michaels was on the Stone Cold Podcast on the WWE Network, but he was also the second guest on The Steve Austin Show. Delve into Austin’s interview with the greatest in-ring performer of all time.
