Stone Cold Steve Austin is the man who defines the iconic Attitude Era in WWE. There are not much one can do to move the Texas rattlesnake, mentally. But the injury is the only thing that something does, and recently he admitted it slightly distracted his focus from the appearance in Wrestlemania 32. The legend had recently admitted that he picked up a torn rotator cuff before his much-anticipated appearance at Wrestlemania 32, as per reports from wrstlingINC.com.
While speaking of the injury, Stone Cold said, “The hardest thing for me was, I went into that event with a torn rotator cuff. I tore it pretty good trying to train too heavy and I figured I’d be able to work around it. What I didn’t factor in was the fact that I was going to need a few working punches to get into a position to throw the Stunners that they wanted me to throw.”
The Hall of Famer has also admitted that it was purely due to adrenaline that he was able to make the presence charismatic as only he can do. The injury was not felt while hitting the stunner to Rusev and then drinking beer in his own trademark inside the ring. But, later at backstage, everything was not right and the injury began to make its presence felt.
Stone Cold will have to undergo a surgery for the same as per latest news. The injury has been giving a lot of trouble to him, lately. WWE announcer Jim Ross has written in his blog “Steve Austin will likely be getting his torn rotator cuff attended to soon. Steve had a brief but memorable appearance at WrestleMania in his home state carrying the injury but the first punch he threw at Rusev completely tore the muscle.”
However, the predicament could not prevent the legend to give us with a Stone Cold moment at Wrestlemania 32 which was one of the most anticipated at the grandest stage and especially when it was being hosted in his home state. Stunners and Beer-cans flew everywhere in the legendary segment which also included HBK and Mick Foley.
