Stone Cold Steve Austin talked on his podcast about the backstage segment where he ran over The Rock's car with a monster truck. Austin stated that while the truck was on and he was waiting for the show to come back from commercial, that he was feeling like he was going to pass out from the fumes of the truck.
“It was about a three minutes commercial break, so the whole time the people back home are watching commercials, I’m in a room, inside a truck, breathing methanol/alcohol fumes — I could barely breathe. I was just begging for the show to come back on air so I could charge out in the audience and get a breath of fresh air. I’m breathing all those exhaust fumes, motherf—er, I was going to crash that gate doing 98 [miles per hour] and go and take my own cue and haul ass into the arena, if they hadn’t of cued me when they did — I was about to die.”
