Thought of the Day: You Can Observe A Lot By Just Watching

As taken from the sage of wrestling: Steve Austin.On one of his podcasts, Austin talks about finding a spot backstage where he could watch every match on a show to see what the people had been doing that night so he wouldn’t be doing the same spots.  For instance, if five people had worked on an arm that night, Austin would go after a lower back or a neck.  It’s such a basic idea but it could keep the fans slightly more entertained and have them more interested in your match.  Now you have people playing video games during the show and the matches get a lot more generic.  As always, Austin knows his stuff.

    I’ve got to admit, Austin is a lot smarter than I gave him credit for. For the longest time I just thought he drank beer and brawled and just got popular because he was edgy as all hell. Clearly I was wrong

    Austin was always at his best when the line between him and his character was so thin you couldn’t see it. He really was the guy pissed off in ECW because WCW and co. wouldn’t let him do his thing. Same in WWE circa 96 or 7 when he seemed legit pissed in all his promos because he wasn’t high enough on the card. Nothing ever felt scripted with him.
