[1990-07-07-USWA-Championship Sports] Interview: Steve Austin & Jeannie Clark

Recommended Posts

"Get well fast, you stupid tramp." That made me laugh. Austin and Jeanne show no remorse for what happened to Toni on the fourth of July. Jeanne is tremendous here - such a total bitch! She points out that women pay $3000 for this sometimes (pointing to her breasts) but she has an all-natural body.

Great Austin promo, though not really one they really should have been running considering the TV situation as he regrets not breaking every bone in Toni's body and promises to put her and Chris in wheelchairs. Jeannie has some good lines and tells Craig Johnson to stop looking down her dress, but she sort of goes off the rails and starts rambling as this segment anticlimactically peters out.

Jeannie’s hair gets caught in Austin’s robe. Austin apologizes for not breaking every bone in Toni’s back. Sheesh. Nice personalized Get Well Soon card by Austin. Better than Hallmark. Jeannie has really got her role down well on the mic stirring up the fans. She catches Craig Johnson taking a peak down her down and lets him know about it.

These two promos were completely mismatched. Austin channels Stone Cold and basically threatens to cripple Toni for life, and Jeannie follows up with.......bragging about her body? What a jarring contrast. I'm not saying that talking about crippling a woman for life is a good thing, but these two needed to pick one message and stick with it. This is one of the first times that Jeannie shows how inexperienced she still is in the business.

 

I did like how she noticed that Craig was looking down her dress and called him out on it. Thankfully, we only have to put up with him for August and a few days in September before USWA Texas takes its hiatus, because right now he's the runaway leader in the competition for worst announcer of 1990. The man simply can't stop smirking, no matter how serious the angle. I'm waiting for one of the boys to ask him on the air, "What's so funny?" Bill Mercer at his most clueless would have been miles better than this.

 

I can't wait to actually go back through and watch the match which caused all this so I can see for myself how it helped get the USWA kicked off of Dallas TV.

Whoa Austin gets brutal here. Vicious insults and threatens to cripple both Chris AND Jeannie. I wasn't really a fan of Jeannie's promo. I liked the content but the delivery was lacking and was kind of halted or something.

Craig Johnson says how Austin isn’t content with just hurting a person, he wants to make sure they’re taken care of for good. Austin says that he’s glad he bought up that because he wants to talk on a serious note for once. On 7/4 they had a mixed tag team match with Chris and Toni Adams and he had Chris laid out in the middle of the ring. Toni comes in because she was concerned for Chris while he’s up on the top turnbuckle fixing to come off and break every bone in his body. Toni lays down on Chris sacrificing herself and trying to save him. He looks down and can see in her eyes that she’s scared, and she’s begging him ‘please don’t jump’, but he jumped anyway. He wants to apologise and say sorry…sorry that he didn’t break every bone in her stinking back! If she ever gets in his way again he’ll cripple her for life. Chris has come up with every stipulation he can think of, but with every stipulation Jeannie and he destroys them. They carted Toni off on a stretcher and Jeannie, being as concerned as she is and such a loving sweetheart, goes over to check on her. As she’s being carried off, the uncoordinated fool that she is, then falls off that stretcher! They were both concerned, but they didn’t have the time to get her a ‘get well’ card so he’s made one for her. It says ‘Toni, Get well fast you stupid tramp, ‘Stunning’ Steve Austin and Jeannie’. Get well fast, so that when she does come back to the ring they can put her out for good! He tells Chris to build those legs up by pushing her around in a wheelchair, but he won’t be pushing her around for long because he’s going to be in a wheelchair right beside her!

 

Jeannie says that she doesn’t care what all these scuzzy, nine to five, sleaze of the earth people think of her, and that they should be honoured to be in her presence. She claims that her family are related to royalty and these people could never be compared to her. She is perfectly natural and women pay $3,000 to have a body like hers! Toni wanted her here this week to sign a contract as she wants all these matches, but where is she? Jeannie then accuses Craig Johnson of looking down her top and fantasising about her! She’s not impressed, but can’t help this effect that she has on men! Toni claims that she is jealous of her, that she wants to be back with that nasty, manipulative man. Is she kidding? Why would the independent woman that she is want to be at home cooking, cleaning and ironing shirts? Chris Adams can’t even pack his own wrestling gear! She’s the one who is jealous because she can never be like her!

 

Austin was excellent here and Jeannie was really good too. It’s a shame Craig Johnson couldn’t keep a straight face when they are calling him out over looking down Jeannie’s top. Way to make your heels look weak when the announcer is laughing at them whilst they are chastising him.

Craig really needs to go. Jeannie is so great at being a total bitch, but she could use some gloating over helping to injure Toni. Austin is a monster in this promo, really showing what he could (and did) become.

Damn, Jeanie Clark is a regular female Rick Rude, calling people "Dirty 9 to 5er", talking about her natural body and asking for the interviewer (looking clueless and like an idiot like he always does apparently) to stop looking at her boobs and if he also fantasize about her. Austin is a wee bit agressive here, but the "Get well tramp" was Stone Cold classic stuff.
