Steve Austin Praises Seth Rollins, Wants Him To Turn Up The "Entertainment Factor"

Quote:
WWE Hall Of Famer Steve Austin recently brought The Steve Austin Show back from hiatus. Austin welcomed his all-time favorite professional wrestler to the podcast, two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair.

During the show, Flair said that Austin's segment on the August 12, 2019 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW regarding current WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins's big title victory over Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam did a lot for Rollins's WWE career. Austin professed that Rollins needs to amp up his "entertainment factor". Also, Flair discussed his own path to being a legendary promo.

According to Flair, Austin putting over Rollins on RAW the night after SummerSlam got 'The BeastSlayer' over more than anything.

"What is funny is that they brought [Austin] on that split screen with Michael Cole on commentary talking about Seth Rollins and [Austin's] promo, [Austin] did more for Seth than 10 hours of TV." Flair continued, "I don't know if you remember the content, but [Austin] did it Steve Austin style with basically [Austin's] verbiage, but leaving out some of the stuff because of the restrictions. But [Austin's] 30-second or maybe it was a minute, or whatever it was, commentary to talk about how glad you were and how proud you were of Seth and just the whole deal got him over more than anything all night long!"

In Austin's expert view, Rollins is a great talent from bell to bell, but must do more to amp up his "entertainment factor".

"Seth's a tremendous worker and I just think, man, when he turns up that entertainment factor, because he's pretty reserved on the horn. And, man, if you go back and watch my promos, I mean, I never know what I'm going to say. I mean, I have things because of storylines and that and angles, so I know where I'm going, but I'll stutter or I'll miss a word, but it's all emotion."

Austin added, "I think that emotions sell tickets, but also being larger than life sells tickets, so if he could just learn to amp it up a little bit, because every time I had a stick in my hands, I was trying to channel and emit energy and people feed off that."

When Austin asked Flair how 'The Nature Boy' became such a fantastic promo, Flair indicated that it came together as he grew more comfortable with himself in the late 1970s.

"I started to amp it up, probably in the late 70s when I got comfortable with myself. But as we talked about before, [Austin] and I privately, you can't bring to the ring what you're really not. Do you know what I mean?"

Another title that would also work if you spin these quotes the right way lol:

Steve Austin: Seth is boring

Just give him 25 years more and probably he would start getting better at promos.

So Stone Cold thinks Rollins sucks on the mic and is a workrate nerd?

To turn something up it must first be turned on.

Imagine having to say Austin, Rock, Hogan, Flair, Savage needed to “turn up the entertainment factor”. Austin is basically saying Seth needs to actually be entertaining and then he would be the total package. Yeah, no shit.

Doesn't help that people can't be entertaining without Vince's permission and his cock in their mouth

Seth don't got it in him. His best work was as a whiny, entitled douchebag heel - Probably because it was the closest thing to his real life personality
