Show: Steve Austin Show
Run Time: 1:12:19
Guest: Tommy Hackenbruck
Summary: Steve opens the show recounting his weekend visit to the ESPN College Gameday set. At 16:10 he begins the interview with Hackenbruck, the male winner of Austin’s CMT game show The Broken Skull Challenge. They talked about Hackenbruck’s workout regime (he’s a CrossFit superstar), his football background (he played linebacker for Urban Meyer at Utah) and went over the specifics of Hackenbruck’s time on the show, especially the Skullbuster final challenge.
Quote of the week: Hackenbruck , on the Skullbuster: “Oh, it hurts. It hurts. I think I hurt for 20 minutes after I was done, with my legs just achy and shaky and just so uncomfortable you don’t want to — there’s no position you can get in that’s comfortable. You try and squat down, you try and stand up, you don’t know what’s going on. It’s tough, and the harder you go on it, the hardest thing about it is it’s kind of a mental challenge because the harder you go on it, the higher probability you’re going to mess up on an obstacle and then lose time.”
Why you should listen: You watched every episode of Broken Skull Challenge and want to go behind the scenes.
Why you should skip it: You’ve never seen a second of Broken Skull Challenge and don’t care to learn anything about the show.
Final thoughts: It’s a pretty easy call. No matter how much you love Stone Cold, if you didn’t pay attention to his nearly-completed reality show (the women’s final has yet to air), there is no reason whatsoever to listen to this episode. It’s not a bad interview, but Hackenbruck is completely uninteresting outside the context of his big win.
