In his latest podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper told his version of the story about his “altercation” with Steve Austin that eventually led to his departure from the PodcastOne family.
The back story involves actor Will Sasso, who was on Piper’s show, doing impersonation of Stone Cold Steve Austin. Austin apparently didn’t like what was said and complained to PodcastOne who in return took down not only that particular podcast, but all of Piper’s archives.
Piper said that he didn’t want to offend anyone and the impersonation was not meant in that way, adding that there “was a lot of love in it.” Rowdy said that when he spoke to the PodcastOne chief, he was told that he could not talk about Steve Austin anymore on his shows and since this was one form of censorship, he decided he didn’t want to partner up with PodcastOne anymore.
“I didn’t mean to offend you in any way, and I still don’t see it,” Roddy said in words directed at fellow Hall of Famer Steve Austin. He apologized if he got offended and said that he still has all the respect in the world for him for all he did in the business.
Austin in his podcast said that Piper lied and it was him who wanted out of the PodcastOne deal and he did nothing to kick Piper off. “I don’t want to deal with it anymore. Okay? So I’m done with it, I didn’t lie about anything, and my heart is in the right place in my life,” Piper concluded.
Piper addressed all this during the beginning of his new podcast which is now hosted on Soundcloud.com. Lanny Poffo is his guest for this week.
