Stone Cold Steve Austin ins one of the greatest wrestlers ever to lace up his boots, and the industry took a nosedive after he decided to call it quits. It is no coincidence that the peak of the WWE coincided with his time in the company, and it has failed to reach those heights since.
However, even the great ones have unfortunate mishaps in the ring. Some of those can lead to injury, but Austin has revealed something a little more out of the ordinary once happened to him.
He was speaking on an episode of YouTube series Hot Ones, where he revealed that he once shit himself during a match. Austin was facing the legendary Yokozuna, affectionately referred to as 'Yok', in South Africa when the incident occurred.
A lot of times when you are doing international travel and there is a dietary change, things happen. And man, Yok, he was six hundred pounds at the time.
When he picked me up and slammed me, things happened. Something went south. And luckily I was wearing black trunks.
And Yoko was so cool. He’s no longer with us. God rest his soul.
I was laying there on the mat and I just crapped my trunks. I looked at him and said, ‘Yok, let’s go home’. Go home is wrestle-speak for let’s do the finish and get out of here.
And he’s so cool, he goes, ‘Okay, brah’. And we did the finish. I got beat and walked to the back and took a hell of a shower.
The perils of the profession.
