“Man, if you’re asking me, it’s gonna be Stone Cold Steve Austin, cause I would walk in there, stomp a mudhole in his a**, and walk out dry. See Rock’s been out there making all these movies. He’s the number one movie star in the world, and I know he’s been in the gym, but, man, I’m still pretty hard; I’m pretty salty.” 

He continued, “You know, I’m still leaning on them beers, and to match us up right here, right now; I’m predicting Stone Cold Steve Austin. I’m sure The Rock would tell you, Dwayne Johnson.”

As soon as Stone Cold said this, Lilly Singh said she’d definitely ask The Rock the same question when he’s on her show. Austin said, “You go ahead and do that, but I’ll tell you it’d be a hell of a match and it was always a deal where I brought out the best in him and he brought out the best in me.
