Steve Austin discussed the Royal Rumble match on the latest episode of the Steve Austin Show, with Wade Keller as his guest. Check out the highlights:
On Roman Reigns winning the Rumble:
If you’re trying to earn the fans respect, you’re really starting in the hole because people feel like he’s being forced down their throats. He’s not ready. They’re looking at the body of work. With the two other guys — three total in the Shield — he’s doing one-third of the work, come in and shine and get out. Now all the sudden you’ve got all these gaps to fill in the blanks, and he hasn’t been able to fill in those blanks.
On Reigns spending so much time in the corner:
I hate to keep going down that road, but that’s what happened. He goes into a corner and takes a nap.
On Keller’s assertion that Reigns is reportedly ‘overly confident’ about his position in WWE:
You can’t take [your spot in WWE] as a given. As soon as you think you’re entitled, you’re thinking it’s a given — no, bad things are gonna happen because it’s conveyed in your presentation. It’s like when Alabama took on Ohio State. Ohio State was number four, Alabama number one, and I think Alabama assumed they were supposed to win that game and they got the h*** beat out of them because Ohio State went and punched them in the mouth. You can’t ever assume that everything’s just gonna happen because then you get a h*** of a wakeup call.
