Steve Austin recently released an old episode of his podcast featuring Triple H where "The Cerebral Assassin" talked about his interactions with Bruno Sammartino and The Ultimate Warrior leading up to their respective Hall of Fame inductions.
“When you’re his age, it’s a trust issue. He didn’t know me and had to learn to trust me in a business that long ago, didn’t have a whole lot of guys you could trust. He had to learn to trust me and he said it at the end, you know, he (Triple H) never once lied to me about any of this.’”
“Warrior was different because we didn’t have a trust. He and I both said as we went through the process, you live and you learn and you grow. The day you stop learning and growing, you’re done. I was a different person when I was in WrestleMania with him which people bring up a lot to me as if it’s a sore spot in my career. I had a bad personal experience with a guy at the moment but it was one of the coolest moments of my life. My first WrestleMania was with The Ultimate Warrior. It was a mind-bogglingly awesome opportunity for me. We had to get past a whole lot of a whole lot of stuff with him and Vince. He was a unique cat. As I stayed open to that process, I realized it was a lot of misunderstood–a lot of his anger and passion and aggression, he didn’t know how to communicate.”
