Montez Ford talks about the magical WrestleMania moments between The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Montez Ford, like every modern WWE Superstar, is looking to create WrestleMania moments such as the ones he saw between The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin from 1999 until 2001. This year, those moments are looked upon more fondly as Stone Cold Steve Austin is returning for one final time at WrestleMania 38.
Speaking with Rick Ucchino in Bleav in Pro Wrestling, Montez has revealed which of the three matches between The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin or his favorite.
Montez has revealed that his favorite was the match between The Rock and Austin which ended up being Stone Cold Steve Austin's last match.
“Definitely say the last one. Like they all are great in their own way, man. But the last one significantly stands out because that was Austin's last match. And also at the same time, like The Rock never, never, never defeated Stone Cold Steve Austin on that WrestleMania stage. And that time he did. It was at a time too where, you know, he was going back and forth into like his transitions and just continuing being this huge global superstar that he is, and it was like, ‘Hey man, I went out there and I accomplished all these things. I've headlined box offices, blockbusters. I haven't done this.’ It's like, after everything he's accomplished in his life, he still wanted to accomplish that. For me, that was extra motivation that you still go out and do these wonderful and great things and you still want to accomplish these things that you just did not succeed in. And he's always been that way. That's why he's the man,” said Ford.
Speaking about the desire to create special moments like the ones that The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin created, Montez Ford says that is the underlying respect amongst all WWE competitors
“We’re basically like a bitter family. Like we all love each other, but all of us still want to be champion and everybody wants to be the best. And I think that's what just makes the hunger and competitiveness and everything so well rounded and we create these special moments. Cause everybody just wants to do well and go out there and just have bangers, man. Like when you have so many people around you that have that mentality, you have no choice but to go out there and create these moments. So, it's cool, man. It's cool,” he said.
Recently, Montez also spoke about his decision to use his frog Splash as a way to combat his fear of heights. Learn more here.
