Steve Austin Reveals When He Received His First Scripted WWE Promo

NWA's Eli Drake was a guest on The Steve Austin Show and during the interview discussed being highly influenced by hip hop in his promos. Here is what he had to say:

"I like a lot of hip hop," Drake said. "Sometimes I'll be rapping a song in my car, but I'll do it like I'm cutting a promo. Like, in the sense where I'm, like, doing facials, doing more, not so much musically, but doing more like I'm actually talking it. And I think it's a great tool in a certain sense, but at the same time, it's like I don't write anything out. I've got notes in my phone where it's like, 'okay, I might want to mention this at some point' or 'I might want to use this' or whatever, I don't think I'd be good with a script."

In response, Austin revealed the first time he got his first scripted promo:

"I'll never forget when I came back from getting my neck fused, C3 and C4, in '99 or whenever it was," Austin remembered. "And when I left, we were cutting promos just like I told [Drake], man, you kind of go out there and it was what it was. You might have a bullet point or two, or someone might say, 'hey man, remember this' or whatever, but you go out there and you cut a promo.

"When I came back, that's when the papers started coming around. And all-of-a-sudden, man, I'll never forget - I've told this story many times, but I was in a room with Vince, and, well, somebody had to track me down. I was watching matches. 'Hey man, Vince wants to go through this promo with you' and so, just like this piece of paper here, and I said, 'Vince… when I get my hands on you… I… am… going… to… tear… you… limb… from… limb…' He goes, 'goddamn it, Steve! Give me your A-promo!' And I'm like, 'I'm not going to give you my A-promo here because I can't give you my A-promo here because I'm not 'Stone Cold' in here!' I'm 'Stone Cold' when I get out there and that's when I turn that s--t on and that's when I'm in a whole different universe. And that's when, dude, when the red light's going, if it's a TV taping, or especially if it's live, that's when I'm really on."
