Stone Cold Steve Austin has high praise for WWE SmackDown stars Drew McIntyre and Sheamus.
In an interview with Bill Apter of Sportskeeda, Austin recalled attending the recent Reno, Nevada WWE house show.
In the main event of the show, Drew McIntyre defeated his longtime rival Sheamus.
Believing that both McIntyre and Sheamus will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day, Austin said:
“Drew and Sheamus headlined the card and they had a tremendous main event, They went probably at least 20 minutes, almost like an anything goes match, and they tore the house down. They were a great main event and everybody loved it. Drew McIntyre is still doing great things. Hell, Sheamus, I love where they’ve got him figured right now.
“They came back after the match and said, ‘Hey, what do you think?’ I said, ‘Come on, guys. Y’all got 40 years of experience between you. Y’all have been in the business longer than I ever was. What can I tell you guys? You’re two professionals!’ Two super great human beings and two Hall of Famers. In all of these Hall of Fames that I’ve been in, they’ll go in as well.”
McIntyre and Sheamus will face off on the July 29 edition of WWE SmackDown to determine the Undisputed WWE Universal Title challenger for the Clash at the Castle premium live event in Cardiff, Wales in September.
