Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mike Tyson, & CM Punk Talk WWE Attitude Era

Steve Austin WWE 13The WWE may be removing Attitude Era videos from You Tube but you can recreate your own Attitude Era memories in WWE 13. THQ gathered an interesting crew of WWE stars recently including Steve Austin, CM Punk, and Mike Tyson to talk Attitude Era and the upcoming video game.

This is a really cool video that runs over 20 minutes. The panel was recorded on SummerSlam 13 weekend. Jim Ross moderates the panel who all do a really great job of promoting the game and talking Attitude Era WWE. WWE Champion CM Punk, World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mike Tyson, Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee, Brodus Clay & The Funkadactyls, Cameron and Naomi, and special moderator Jim Ross make up the panel.

The video features a ton of promotion for the upcoming video game which actually looks pretty good, especially for those of us that watched the Attitude Era. I will say that it is pretty cool to hear some of these newer stars like WWE RAW G.M. AJ Lee talk about what it means to her to be in the video game, especially since she was such a big fan of the era.

Mike Tyson is an interesting character on the panel. Tyson is a big pro wrestling fan and seems genuinely excited to be in the video game. Unfortunately as you could expect, Tyson will give you his inaudible moments on the panel. Punk chimes in at one point and talks about playing Mike Tyson’s Punch Out as a kid and how cool it is to have Mike in the game.

It is no surprise that Stone Cold Steve Austin is the star of the panel. Austin gives some great insight into what it was like to be a part of the Attitude Era. Austin brings up a hilarious story about how Tyson would always call him Cold Stone back when they were feuding.

Several of the newer WWE superstars recall their favorite memories of the Attitude Era as well. It is pretty cool to hear from current WWE wrestlers what they were thinking when they watched the Attitude Era as younger fans.

Check out the entire video for yourself…before the Linda McMahon campaign has it removed of course.
