Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Hell In a Cell match against The Undertaker

Stone Cold discussed his favorite match against The Undertaker. He immediately felt a sense of nostalgia for a few seconds, remembering the Attitude Era days. He talked about having a few great high-profile matches with the Phenom. Austin said, “Probably Hell in a Cell would be one most people remember. I got knocked out in that match. I don’t remember the second half of that match. It wasn’t my best performance because I got flashed.”

It seems Austin does not consider the Hell in Cell match his best against The Undertaker. Austin’s favorite match is not against The Undertaker, but the one where he teamed up with the legend.

The match Stone Cold, referred to, was a house show at Pennslyvania, probably at Hershey’s. The match was a 6-man tag team where Stone Cold and The Undertaker were a team with a third wrestler whom Austin did not remember.

Stone Cold had just returned from his neck injury, which he picked up against Owen Hart at SummerSlam 1997 and the company was putting in-house show for practice, for his return to action on televised shows.

Austin said, “And I wasn’t supposed to go out there and take very many bumps, but due to the excitement of the crowd and Austin 3:16 shirts I said, ‘Man I have to go in there and take a bump. So I tagged in, ran a highest spot, took a couple of bumps, and tagged out. As the other guy went into the ring, I stepped on to the apron and Undertaker looked at me with that look, that only he can give and said beneath his breath, ‘WHAT IN THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?.'”

Why is this match Stone Cold Steve Austin’s favorite?

The aforementioned rhetoric showed Steve Austin that The Undertaker cared about his fellow wrestlers even between the matches. Austin could have injured himself again during that house show match and Taker, with all due care, told Austin in his own way to go easy or else he would injure himself again.

Austin thought this gesture was a spirit of fair play. This might be the reason everybody respects The Phenom so much, not only in the WWE but across the pro-wrestling industry.

The wrestling stories of the wrestlers are always fun to hear, especially the wrestlers from the attitude era. It gives the fans some insight into how the wrestlers are behind the curtain. Stone Cold Steve Austin right now is with WWE, making appearances on televised shows, and also on the WWE Network interviewing retired and current wrestlers on Broken Skull Sessions. As with The Undertaker, it is unclear if he will ever make a return to action.
