"Stone Cold" Steve Austin gets cussed out by Dutch Mantel

Feb 17, 2012 - 03:19 PM

WWE Legend Steve Austin updated the blog section of his website, with an interesting story from his first days in the business when "Dirty" Dutch Mantel cussed him out for putting on a crappy match and not realizing it. Among the highlights:

"He then proceeds to rip me apart for at least a lifetime it seemed. He called Chris Champion over and demonstrated how I had screwed up half the wrestling holds I had used. This ass chewing session was a 9.9 out of 10. I think he actually invented a few new cuss words to use on me. The Dutchisms were relentless, ruthless, and certainly unparalleled at this point in my life.

"Then he points at a steel chair…You see that steel chair, right there? Yes… I want you to grab that chair and watch every match on the card. That’s the only way you’re going to learn this sh!t. He turned and walked away. He had just given me some of the best advice anyone had ever given to me in the wrestling business."

Shore's Slant: A great story from Austin, and one you can tell meant a lot to him. It's not a very long read, but one worth soaking in completely.
