Revisiting a dead topic — During the 80s in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex there were several local wrestling federations with weekly TV show. The local feds were bought and sold changing hands during the end of the 80s, but WCCW and UWF were memorable because talent from one fed worked in the other. Among those were the likes of Steve Austin.. before the WCW Hollywood Blondes, the future Stone Cold Steve Austin was saddled with a heel gimmick named Stunning Steve Austin (without the Stunner as a finisher ironically).
Whoever runs this Youtube channel has archives of the various Mid-South regional federations including UWF, and in this particular video Steve Austin gives a fairly decent heel promo and there’s hints of what would become the Texas Rattlesnake.
Not sure if linking will work so here’s the video and timeclip of the promo.. he works a fairly standard 80s match afterwards..
