During a Wednesday interview with ABC27 in Pennsylvania, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin, who was in Harrisburg for the Pennsylvania Farm Show was interviewed regarding a number of topics, including the recent retirement of former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan. Below is what Austin had to say regarding the topic:
"It's a hard pill to swallow when you have to walk away from something that you truly love. That's a guy who worked his tail off and the system was against him, he wasn’t the guy that was the chosen one. And because the fans believed so much in him, they had to make him the chosen one. It’s like Paul Orndorff, Mr. Wonderful, told me a long time ago when he had to retire. He said 'Steve, there is life after wrestling.' and I said 'There is?' and he goes 'Yes, there is.'"
