It’s become pretty clear that Steve Austin isn’t afraid to speak his mind when it comes to the state of WWE, and this week on his podcast was no different. Austin talked about The Wyatt Family, who at one point looked like they would be a major force in WWE, and have instead become fairly ineffective, most recently losing on Pay Per View to a thrown-together team of Ryback, Kane, and The Big Show, and having a rumored WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar wrested away from them.
Here’s what Austin had to say about the sorry state of The Wyatt Family:
“They’ve really homogenized The Wyatt Family. They’ve got great music. They’ve got a great entrance. Bray cuts a hell of a promo and Luke Harper is starting to cut great promos. He has drastically improved too and I know this guy’s a veteran guy … these guys were some of the hottest guys in the company a year, year and a half ago. Here we are now and, I mean, just quite frankly, it is what it is. They don’t mean what they should to this company. And Bray Wyatt, being the leader of this faction, is taking a huge hit. And that’s a travesty of booking right there because, again, these are some very talented guys within The Wyatt Family structure.”
