According to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, there are three guys in WWE who have "big superstars written on them."
"I think Bray Wyatt is one of them, Cesaro is one of them, but when I got to mention the guy your asking for is
Roman Reigns," Austin remarked in an interview this week with Between The Ropes.
"He happens to be related to The Rock. Good looking kid, damn good worker in the ring, I want to know some more about his
promos. But man, if I got to look at the roster right now and say whose my next megastar, his name is Roman Reigns."
The WWE Hall of Famer also offered his thoughts on which WWE Superstars would fare best on
Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge, a competition series premiering July 6 on CMT that "pits elite athletes
against everyday men and women in the ultimate test of strength, stamina and wit."
"I think Seth Rollins and Antonio Cesaro might be able to get through the course. But you know, they would have to get
through the challenges first and had the competitions and then take on the course," said Austin. "It would be (laughs) very
interesting to see Seth Rollins compete against Antonio Cesaro at the Broken Skull Challenge."
Elsewhere in the interview, Austin reveals how long he would wrestled for if not for his neck injury and offers advice to
Daniel Bryan on his current injury. The full interview is available here.
