Da Eagle has arrived

look like it was et-up for maybe injury recovery time for Austin. I'm not buying the whole walkout thing now, espically with the way he returned with no problems. What do you guys think?

Let me get this straight- You're saying you don't think that Austin actually walked out on the WWE and that it was just time for him to recover from an injury?

Wow. I'll let someone else handle this one (shakes head).

I'm just saying that it's an interesting theory. I have no proof that this is the case, but with the WWE, you never know.

Is there a possibility that Austin's original walkout was supposed to be a work, considering the pissing contest that Austin and Vince got into on Byte This prior to the walkout? Yes. However, the problem Austin had later in the week tends to make one believe it wasn't a work, instead Austin had become extremely paranoid and burnt out.
The thing I've always wanted to hear about the incident is whether it started with Debra bitching about Steve walking away from the money left on his contract. If so, then his walkout was not a work.

I seriously doubt it but here is one interesting fact. A friend of mine works for a third party company that makes WWF (die pandas) products. They were told to put Austin back in the new product just before Thanksgiving since he would be returning in Feb.

There was a lot of speculation on this board when the Austin walkout first happened that it was all a work. But I think the arrest debunked that. If it was, it's the best and most convincing work they've ever pulled. And the most out of the blue.

Da Eagle has arrivedI was just thinking though, as Austin had no problems when he wanted to come back, and Vince McSatan had said that a apology was mandatory, and I don't think he got one.

It is my considered opinion, given the way Stone Cold returned last night, (i.e. no music, no playin' up to the crowd, and no beer guzzling,) that Austin is here for three months or so, and that Vince has paid him an obscene amount of money to be this fiscal quarter's quick boost for the ratings.
As I've said elsewhere, Austin came to the ring last night like he'd just punched in on a time clock. The whole attitude he was radiating was "Clock In - Do the Work - Gimme da Money - Clock Out."
No thought for the fans, and certainly no thought for poor ol' Cracka Eazy E or the WWE. He still despises the writers, Gewirtz especially, and will have no truck with any of them. It's the money drives Austin now, pure and simple, and given that Montreal crowd's reaction and adulation last night, The Texas Rattlesnake can demand just about any figure he wants from Vince and get it.

That's my opinion, fwiw.

I'll certainly accept that that's your opinion, and as a bonus, here's mine.

I must have been watching an entirely different match. There was music, there was playing for the crowd, and he even looked like he was having fun last night, if not a bit nervous as to whether or not the fans wanted him or not and whether or not he made the right decision (with leaving OR coming back).

Okay, I admit people have different opinions about guy's motivation and there's really no way to ever be sure about "what they were thinking", but to clear up an easy one: was there or was there not music?

Other than that, I'm heading towards Geemonkey's corner for the rest of this thread. See ya' later!

Just because he didn't give one on screeen (not that it was even possible, since Austin didn't make any appearances before NWO) doesn't mean Austin didn't apologize to McMahon in private. Not that I believe that McMahon would have kept him out if he refused to apologize. McMahon would put Charles Manson in a match if he thought it would get the ratings.

Seems like an interesting theory. Austin could really have been burnt out and instead of an injury angle or something like that, make it look like he walked out and it adds more interest to when he does finally return. Just in time for Wrestlemania...

Ted Bundy went supernova 24 January 1989, courtesy of your friends at the state of Florida.

You could do Cactus Jack Manson against King Kong Bundy, though, that would work. Or Shirley Manson against Ed O'Neil.

The way I figure it is that Austin was legit pissed at the creative staff of Raw, and went to Vinnie Mac, and requested the time off, and McSatan gave it too him.

I see Ultimo didn't wrestle last night. He could've wrestled Tyson Dux but instead he wasn't used. Sucks.
