Austin/Owen II

Hello again Scott,

Since today's discussion already touched upon Owen and Austin, I thought it would be an opportune time to ask: In your RAW 10th Anniversary rant, I recall you saying that Austin "toasting" Owen at the end of RAW is Owen was particularly hypocritical considering that Austin previously refused to work with him. Could you elaborate on that, please? Was that around Summerslam '97 or after?

Well it was after Survivor Series because they had a shitty match there, but yeah, Austin basically said he never wanted to work with Owen again, and at that point Austin got what he wanted.  They probably would have been on totally different career paths anyway, but it’s kind of sad that Owen always had that hanging over them, because it seems like they share a sense of humor and could have done awesome business together if both were healthy.
