Appearing on a WWE TikTok QnA session transcribed by The SportsRush, Austin said, “I disagreed with it. I never like to blow smoke up my a*s, but guys like myself, like Hogan, and a few others, they don’t grow on trees. So you want to sacrifice what you’ve built up in me? And with no buildup?”
He added, “But that walkout was still total stupidity and hard-headedness on my part. I should have shown up, and that is my biggest regret in the business of pro wrestling.’”
Brock Lesnar was a rookie in WWE at that point. Austin is a wrestler who has always been a part of incredible storylines. Therefore, the Texas RattleSnake would have taken a loss against Lesnar if there was a proper storyline for the match.

Surprisingly, all those years later, Austin wishes he would have done that match without any storyline. He wanted to face Lesnar, but it never happened. That match was later turned into Bubba Ray Dudley vs Brock Lesnar and The Beast Incarnate went to win the tournament.
