“I’ve known you almost as long as I’ve been in wrestling,” Austin said. “But over the years, for some reason, the stories that go around on the internet and wrestle speak and all that stuff, there’s perceived heat between myself and yourself. I wanted to clear the air and take that off the table from the get-go.”

Jarrett added to Austin’s comment and further confirmed that the rumors about there being any sort of heat between the two were simply untrue.

“People wanted to latch on and different stories came out,” Jarrett said. “Look, they latched onto the story and it kept growing and kept growing and I can’t tell you how many interviews I’ve done and [interviewers] said, ‘Man, Stone Cold hates your stinking guts. Why?’ I’m like, ‘Hate my guts?! That’s pushing it a little.’”
