WWE: Steve Austin Talks About His Induction Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

Steve Austin spoke about his legacy in a Houston Chronicle feature. "I did sell a ton of tickets to the matches, and I did sell a ton of merchandise," he said. "In the wrestling business, it doesn’t really matter how many times you were champion. It’s how many tickets you sold. For whatever reason, I sold more tickets than anybody else. I broke pay-per-view TV records. That’s my legacy. That’s the thing I’ll hang my hat on."

Austin also discussed the WWE Hall of Fame. "I’ve been trying to come up with a speech," he continued. "I’m so thrilled and excited about this. But going up there and talking about myself the real person, not ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin the wrestler, is a whole different ball game. You wouldn’t think that Stone Cold, the character, would ever get emotional, but I am a pretty emotional person… Wrestling was a large part of my life, and it’s hard to draw one straight line, or one train of thought, through it. So I’m going to make the best of it and just wing it." To read the full story, visit
