"Stone Cold" Steve Austin sat down for an interview for The Sun. In it, he talks about the Hogan vs Sting match that takes place at Bound For Glory:

I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard about Hogan v Sting. That will be interesting too, I mean Hogan had back surgery didn’t he? They are both great guys. I’m a fan of Sting’s and he can still go with the best of them. I know Hogan well and he still has it when he needs it. It will be a very interesting night at the office that one and I will most certainly be watching Bound For Glory to see how it works out.

I get annoyed when people say that such and such should retire, or they shouldn’t compete due to injury or age. I know how it works and many of these guys find it hard to stay out of the ring. Hogan, for example, was put on this world to be there. There may often be money involved when guys step back in the ring, but it’s more about their need to be there than the financial rewards. The other thing is that there are so few people coming up through the ranks who can match the success of guys like Hulk, Flair, Sting or myself. Cena may be the only one who has reached that level — I’ve yet to see another hit that peak yet.

I agree with Steve people say these guys should retire, why shouldn't they do it against each other? Hogan and Sting want to go out on a big stage not fade away. Sting should retire the way he came in on a non WWE stage in a non WWE ring.

In the end it all comes down to WWE fans being angry at Sting for never wanting to go to the WWE and retire there, and mad at Hogan for turning his back on the company and again not wanting to retire there. I might include ROH fans in this as well, but if there are any they're either angry that they don't have any huge names or they still see the business through the "If you can't do a 450 you suck" prism.

Either way, that is obviously the bottom like 'cause Stone Cold said so!

What happened between them was years ago. Hogan and Stone Cold are probably over it. (At least I hope so.)

Austin always is a voice of reason in wrestling, the man thinks as both a wrestling legend and a fan. He isn't jaded like many other people like Lance Storm who just can't seem to enjoy anything. Austin has said in the past he watched TNA and is very open minded about it, he has even enjoyed the Shark Boy parody of him. But he is right wrestlers should retire when they decide to hang up the boots not us the fans who think they know everything.

Stone Cold is right-on. I also love that he doesn't talk like a WWE loyalist like some guys.

Good, Fair and open minded comments from Stone cold Steve Austin in regards to Sting vs hogan and TNA in general.

Most people "respectfully disagree" with Austin.

I want Austin to go to TNA to put over James Storm. He should wrestle his one match left of him against a guy who actually has potential to be more than a "pipe bomb" idiot. James Storm vs. Austin promos would = ratings, buyrates, twitter trendings, great quotes, etc.

Austin is a TRUE fan of the business. If you don't have an open mind when watching wrestling of all things, then you likely have some sort of issue.

Austin needs to get his redneck ass off the chair and help TNA out. Not even wrestle just be there as an on-screen character and do backstage stuff. It allows you to film your movies and you're in the business. Doubt he'll go, he's still loyal to the WWE, but I don't see how it can hurt him. If Hogan leaves Austin's in the perfect position to replace him. Austin's still very much relevant among the media and the fans.

I wouldn't call it loyalty Beel, it's more that Austin is out of TNA's price range. Austin is alot like Goldberg, he doesn't come cheap and likely would want a contract in the 7 figure annually range. Can't blame the guy, his merchandising and name are still highly valuable, the guy can still pop up and his merchandise shoots to the top of WWEShop.com. If the price could possibly be met he'd come, hell he tried to put on his own wrestling supershow when he quit the WWE the 2nd time so we know where his loyalty is, to himself.

If they can afford to have Hogan, Flair, Sting, Bischoff, Angle, Anderson and Jeff Hardy on the roster at the same time I'm pretty sure they can afford Stone Cold.

Its very obvious that both The Really Great TNA Impact Wrestling and the wwe watch each other or at least are aware what the other is doing. As much as McMahon says that they are not concerned about the Really Great TNA Impact Wrestling, they are. After Mickie and Tara had that great cage match on Impact, McMahon put together a Divas table match for whatever the next PPV was at the time. Just so he can counter what TNA Impact Wrestling did. TNA Impact Wrestling has Sting, Flair and Hogan in the ring, so McMahon brings back Nash and even has Lawler involved in an angle and match. And as far as Austin saying what he did about BFG & Sting vs Hogan, he sounds like he means it. Great to see him say good things about TNA and the PPV and this match. It would be great if everyone from the WWE and the WWE Universe could be the same way, but they can't or at least wouldn't come right out and publicly say that they are.

I'll be honest. When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought here comes more TNA bashing from a WWE loyalist a la Jericho. I was pleasantly surprised at Austin's comments regarding the match and his honesty regarding age and retirement. Some of the IWC remain extremely skeptical about this match and have a right to think that way, but the ratings during the Sting/Hogan segments are some if not the most watched segments on Impact Wrestling which indicates the the casual fan has an interest in this possible trainwreck. In the end, I just hope that Hogan does not embarrass himself in the ring. Personally, I have no problem with Sting even at the age of 52 as he can still wrestle in a competitive match.
