Former WWE Superstar Sean “X-Pac” Waltman recently appeared as a guest on WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s weekly podcast, The Steve Austin Show, for an in-depth interview. Below are some of the highlights.
On some of the things he feels he could have done to improve his WWE career: “I think, for me, I should have worked harder on my mic skills and I should have been a lot easier to deal with and I would have been pushed a lot better. I was really… I was really, with my first run there, I felt like I let a lot of stuff happen there that I shouldn’t have and so I overcompensated for it when I came back. If I thought anybody was messing with me, I was difficult. And also, I didn’t allow them to work me more than 15 days a month and when you do that, then it kind of takes a lot of the opportunities off the table.”
On turning down WWE’s offer to have the Red Hot Chilli Peppers perform his theme music and turning down a WrestleMania match with Chris Jericho: “I was always a contrarian. I’m going to give you an example and I might’ve told you this one because I’ve told it several times of an example of what a dumbass I was. Shane McMahon comes up to me, ‘yeah, we’re going to have just the Red Hot Chili Peppers do your theme music.’ I’m like, ‘no, I want Uncle Kracker.’ I mean, come on, man.” “another one, it was Vince and Shane, ‘we’re thinking of having you work Jericho at ‘Mania for the I.C. belt.’ I’m like, ‘no, I want to finish my program with Kane, which was already way on its last legs, Steve, but ‘no, I want to do this.’ So I mean, do that give you an example?”
On which WWE Superstar from today, if any, he would trade bodies with if possible: “Randy Orton. That’s just [off the top of Waltman’s head]. I mean, there [are] several other guys I could think of, but, Randy, okay, Randy Orton. Man, talk about good genetics.”
