Lotty : People booed him because he did an amazing job trying to make himself hated, he didn't try to be the cool heel. He played the perfect heel IMO.
Love reading all these great heel Austin moments, how amazing I /we remember stuff that happened a year ago, nowadays I can't seem to remember what's going on just a few months ago. Well back to Austin.
I remember once he went up to Hugh Morrus and said "Hugh...Morrus" stalls a little with a look "Hugh Morrus?" Austin looks like he's really thinking "humourous?" "Is that your name, is that supposed to be funny, is that supposed to make Stone Cold laugh?"
This is my favourite Austin moment, it has to do with Austin interrogating RVD on Smackdown I had to go to Zed archives to get that report (nov. 8 /01)
Austin calls RVD into a room, sits him down dims the light and a spotlight magically hits RVD in the face
RVD- "What the hell is this?" Austin- "What the hell do you THINK it is, RVD?" RVD- "Tanning sys--" Austin- "Nonono - a what?" RVD-"Tanning system?" Austin- "No it ain't a tan!" RVD- "I don't know." Austin- "You ever seen on the TV, when they sit a (beep) down in the chair, and they ask him questions, and the lights shine on 'em, it's because they want answers. It's a five syllable word called interrogation." RVD- "I used to see it on Baretta." (my note: was that taken Before baretta took out his wife?) Austin- "Do you think you're funny? Do you see me laugh? Do you know what my watch is saying?" RVD-"I've never heard that watch." Austin-"It's sayin' it's time for you to sit there, look straight ahead, and give Stone Cold Steve Austin some answers"
Austin accueses RVD going to sell out on the allience then RVD stated all the times Austin recently turned his back on people who trusted him. And somehow RVD almost convinced Austin himself that he (austin) will be the trader...lol, funny stuff.
Looking for this and knowing it happened late october early november and reading through the smackdown reports for Austin backstage stuff on slashwresling (plug.plug) I came across all this Austin/WWF backstage GOLD. It's really everything was "hitting" backstage for Austin at that time period.

This speaks a lot for how well regarded Rock has become in Hollywood to land a major role with Travolta. Didn't he just sign on for another project too? The guy has no shortage of work lined up and money coming in.
