Steve Austin was at the top of the card in the WWF for many years. During those years he faced many opponents, some of whom were difficult to work with.
On a recent episode of the Steve Austin Show podcast, Austin revealed which opponent he did not like at all.
“We both, Undertaker and myself, always respected Shawn’s ability, his work, the talent, the things that he could do in the ring, because he was pretty much kind of unparalleled. He was that damn good.
But as a person, I didn’t like him. Quite frankly, I didn’t like him at all.”
It is no surprise as Shawn Michaels was not an easy person to deal with in the Attitude Era. His struggles have been talked about publicly with The Undertaker having to stand guard backstage to ensure Michaels did the job to Austin at WrestleMania XIV.
Of course, Michaels has reportedly changed his ways since then. Following his departure from WWE in 1998, Michaels got his life together and found religion. It is likely that Austin’s feelings towards Michaels have changed since the Attitude Era.
