Steve Austin used his time backstage at this week's episode of Monday Night Raw in Los Angeles to form a "state of WWE" evaluation that's featured in his latest PodcastOne podcast.
Austin said Vince McMahon seemed preoccupied with a lot on his plate right now and that he conducted future podcast interviews with John Cena, William Regal, Big Show and Zeb Colter.
He said Cena wants new opponents and someone to fight for his spot. Austin assumes that Rey Mysterio had heat for being booked #30 in the Royal Rumble match, knowing that entrant would generate a heel reaction. Austin said there was a high degree of professionalism backstage but a lot of people afraid to speak up in fear of pissing someone off. He encouraged workers to start taking chances.
