During the latest edition of the Steve Austin podcast, he gave his thoughts on Sheamus kicking Jeff Hardy in the face which made a tooth fall out. He talks if Sheamus got heat for it and more.
Here’s what he had to say: (Transcript sourced from WrestlingInc.com)
“I don’t think there’s any heat. I mean, those guys are out there trying to tell a story, trying to get this angle over. They did. Hey, you catch one, it’s a little snug or in the wrong placement, maybe, but it is what it is. If I had been in the same shoes, if that had been my mouth, I would have just, hey, man, I mean, sometimes you take one for the team”
“I’ll tell you what, if there’s one thing that Jeff Hardy is it is double-tough. If you watch that old motorcycle crash he had, because he loves dirt bikes and motocross and all the stuff he has done over the course of his [pro wrestling] career from all those TLC matches, I mean, it’s the cage matches… this guy is not afraid of anything, so, believe me, getting a tooth knocked out of his mouth is nothing but a thing to this guy and I think everything is cool. No heat at all in my opinion. The fact that it actually happened, hey, it is what it is. Play it up, but just between the guys, I don’t think there’s any animosity.”
