WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about a wide range of topics.
In the interview, he gave some big praise to WWE Raw Superstar Andrade. This is where he noted that he thinks Andrade is going to be a big player in the future.
“Right now, the people that are on top are the people that should be on top,” Austin said. “But I called this two years ago watching his match when he did the favors for somebody that night, and I said, ‘Man, this Andrade kid is going to be a player one of these days.’ I think he’s proving that.”
Some fans will agree and disagree with Austin. Andrade found success in NXT where he became an NXT Champion. His run on the main roster has been up and down thus far.
Austin thinks Andrade still needs to make tweaks to his character but he’s a great worker.
“He still has a ways to go, but it’s just tweaking that character,” Austin said of Andrade. “The kid’s a hell of a damn worker.”
