Former WWE, WCW and TNA head writer Vince Russo revealed in a new column with WhatCulture how WWE Hall of Famer 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin did not want to do the beer truck angle in a beer truck on Raw which went on to become one of the defining moments of WWE's Attitude Era.
"In the epic scene on "Raw", when Steve Austin drove a beer truck into the arena, I actually had to talk Steve into it! The Texas Rattlesnake said he just wanted to enter in his pick-up. He didn't "see" the beer truck. However, once the segment was produced, I think Steve totally understand the impact that it was going to have on the fans for many years to come. It was truly, one of the most classic scenes in the history of "Monday Night Raw". Thankfully I talked him round, he didn't go with the pick up, riding in instead with the beer truck, driving his way into wrestling history."
