On the latest edition of the Stone Cold Steve Austin podcast, Vince McMahon was asked many questions that fans wanted answered. From the status of Vince’s son Shane, Cesaro’s current situation and even the relationship with Vince and CM Punk were all brought up. Another topic of interest was the reasoning why the current WWE Champion and the man to defeat the Undertaker for the first time at Wrestlemania and end the heralded “streak” has been absent from television in the last few months. With some transcribing help from Wrestlingnewssource.com here’s what Vince had to say about Brock Lesnar.

Austin talked about watching The Undertaker losing at Wrestlemania and asked about the background of ending the streak. Vince replied that no one wants to give back to the business more than Mark Calaway (The Undertaker). He said that it was time and when you look down the line on who he could work with, who else was it going to be? There was no one else it could be at that time. He said that Brock was the one person that Mark felt was the guy. Austin challenged him and Vince admitted that in the end he made the decision to end the streak.

Austin asked Vince why Brock Lesnar isn’t around more. Vince said you don’t want him around more because he’s a special attraction. In Brock’s last appearance, he bested John Cena once more in defense of his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of the Night of Champions pay-per-view on the WWE Network.

Vince said that Randy Savage would absolutely be in the WWE Hall of Fame. He said it would be soon, but perhaps not this year. But like a true rattle snake does, Austin cornered him and made Vince say yes. Then, like Brock, Vince addressed the situation and booking with the newly acquired Sting.

On Sting, Vince McMahon said he made a great impression, but he’s the type of character you don’t need to see every week (like Brock). However, McMahon stated: “I think you’ll see him at Wrestlemania.” Austin said that when he was hot, he was on every show, to which Vince replied that the business has changed along with some of it is contracts. Brock’s current contract is rumored to come to an end after Wrestlemania 31.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
