In a series of posts to Twitter, The Rock spoke about the build to Wrestlemania XV, especially in light of the infamous beer bath moment that recently turned twenty. He said that Stone Cold Steve Austin, his opponent for the event, was dealing with a broken neck at the time so they had to work around that in the build to the event. He added that working with Vince Russo was always fun and he was always open to The Rock’s ideas, no matter how crazy. He wrote:
My tough SOB brother @steveaustinBSR was operating here with a legit broken neck so we had to be creative with keeping our physicality to a minimum until our big WrestlemMania match. The result was one of the most entertaining segments to ever take place on LIVE TV. https://t.co/oiSdm0MIOI
Not sure why @THEVinceRusso would catch crap over this. I had a great time working with that guy. I had some crazy out of box ideas and never once did he bat an eyelash. Hed always say, fuck yeah lets do it. And we did. And we killed. Always fun!
