Austin Talks Attending WWE Network Announcement
Steve Austin told WWE.com that he was a bit annoyed about having to go to the Network announcement event, but is very impressed by the concept:

Way back in the day when I started out in 1990, I would have never envisioned that the business would ever turn to this or someone would have the vision to do it. Vince McMahon was standing right in front of me, about two feet away, and I slapped him on the back two times and I said, ‘That’s impressive.’ And I left that thing being extremely impressed with what WWE has come up with now.
