“There ain’t no b—h in none of my brothers or my uncles or nobody. I ain’t never ran from one man in my life and never will. Especially some daisy duke, bald-headed, bad knee, guy that beats up women. You kidding me? You kidding me? I’d slap Steve Austin’s teeth out of his mouth, ain’t no punk like that don’t ever fight a man. Now on TV, I got to run from him, I’m scared of him. Nah, miss me with that. But that’s the way they work, and this is what I told everybody was going to happen.” H/t That 90’s Wrestling

Keeping his words in mind, let’s not forget that this segment went onto becoming one of the iconic moments in WWE’s history. Not only did it become a milestone in both their careers, but one which continued to dominate other segments for a long time.

Moreover, this was done with one camera. Stone Cold Steve Austin and Booker T did damage worth $10,000 to $15,000.
