Yet, that’s exactly what happened on an exclusive post pay-per-view broadcast of The Steve Austin Show podcast in December. For over an hour, McMahon and Austin talked candidly about the business, including the behind the scenes issues that arose between the two of them, the recent departure of C.M.

It is a really entertaining hour of viewing and really showcases Austin’s emerging talent as an interviewer and host.
