– During a recent edition of his podcast (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), Steve Austin spoke about missing WrestleMania, selling his ranch and shoots down rumors his has heat with WWE…

On Missing WrestleMania Because He Was Selling His Ranch: “In putting the place up for sale, man, you never know when all these things are going start lining up. And from a business standpoint and from a personal standpoint, I had a lot of irons in the fire and they were all heating up as WrestleMania became right down the road and then it happened. So you have all this speculation going on on the internet that, ‘oh, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is done with the WWE,’ ‘he’s no longer a part,’ ‘his contract expired,’ ‘he’s not satisfied with what’s going on,’ and just all this malarky, which was total B.S. So I was frankly too busy taking care of my personal business, and some professional business I’m working on as well, to make it down to WrestleMania 33. But I just wanted to put to rest all these rumors and B.S. that say I’m at odds with WWE, this, that, or whatever. Hell, I was down there, selling my ranch, moving all my stuff.”

On WWE Inviting Him to WrestleMania 33: “WWE reached out to me and invited me down to WrestleMania 33. They know I love going to the Hall Of Fame and I had some of my close friends going in on this year’s induction, but, as it goes, I was having to drive down there, fly down there, to get all my stuff, drive back after just selling the place, getting all of our stuff. Man, I was too busy. I told the person who invited me to go down there, I said, ‘hey man, I sure appreciate the invitation, but I’ve got so many things [going on].'”

On Always Being Part of The WWE: “I will always be part of the WWE. The WWE will always be a part of my life. Man, I’m in this thing for the rest of my life. That’s the relationship I have with the WWE, so there has never been [any] heat, no this, no that, no whatever. I’m at a great place with those guys and I’m thankful for everything they’ve done for me. I’m sure they’re thankful for the things I did for them. And, again, I’m a WWE member for life, so anybody that spreads any of the internet B.S. or rumors, you’re hearing it straight from the horse’s mouth. You’re hearing it from ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. I was down there taking care of personal business. And, anyway, I just wanted to clear that up because that was really chapping my ass and it was really bothering me.”
