Steve Austin revealed recently on an episode of The Steve Austin Show his thoughts on the Titus O'Neil/Vince McMahon incident and the subsequent suspension Titus received, including the suggestion that it could be racially motivated.
He says the punishment was a little much, but the accusations of racism are “bullsh*t.”
“The whole racist thing really irritated me because any time you hear about anything these days it’s racist, and, man, it’s 2016. I’m not saying racism doesn’t exist, but, I mean, to play that card in this situation was total B.S. from my perspective … racism and that? Absolutely not. It was a reprimand for something that didn’t need to happen at that time. End of story.
“If you’re going to suspend somebody, I think 30 [days]. I think 60 is still a little overreacting. Did something need to happen, a come to Jesus meeting or a stern talking to backstage? Something needed to happen because I do believe it was inappropriate. It was the wrong person, at the wrong time.”
