The Texas Rattlesnake Steve Austin recently appeared on the WWE Network series ‘Drew & A.’ Drew McIntyre asked Stone Cold a number of questions in the show, including what was it like working with Triple H in WWE.
The Game and Stone Cold joined forces in 2001, becoming The Two Man Power Trip. The short lived team, due to Triple H tearing his quad, is still fondly remembered by many fans as one of the only high points of Steve Austin’s heel turn that year.
‘I love working with Triple H,’ Austin began. ‘We hit it off when he came down to WCW way back in the day, we didn’t travel roads together but we were on the same page. We both loved bodybuilding, powerlifting. He’s a great worker, good mind for the business.’
‘But Triple H, a great mind for the game,’ Austin continued. ‘I picked his opinion on many different things, and asked his opinion on many different things when I was on my run, and one of my ideas as a heel that I wanted to do was form a tag team with him, and call it The Two-Man Power Trip.”

“We were really, really trying to get some heat” Austin noted. “Laying some heavy steel chairs down on The Undertaker, Kane, Hardys, Lita, my God.
‘We were doing everything we could in my alliance with him” Steve Austin stated. “Which kind of ensured that I was headed in a heat direction. Then fate hit one night in a tag match on Monday Night RAW; he blew out that quad, and that was the end of that.”
“And he made a successful comeback, obviously he’s had one of the greatest runs in the history of the business” Austin concluded. “But [he’s] a guy that’s a lot of fun to be in the ring with.’
