While a lot of people compare Bryan battling authority to Austin, Stone Cold said the two stories are actually pretty different. Austin said that he was always pushing authority figures and pushing boundaries, whereas Bryan is just trying to get ahead and finds authority figures blocking his path to the top.
However, Austin said there was one strong similarity. He said that Triple H has learned a lot from Vince McMahon and is showing a lot of the ruthless aggression that McMahon made famous. He said that if Bryan ever wants to win this war, he will need to become aggressive himself and take the battle back to Randy Orton and Triple H.
Austin also said that Bryan needs to be patient and smart and lie in wait until the time is right to strike.
Stone Cold also said that Triple H has worked his entire career to reach this position, because he always wanted to find his place at the top regardless of whether he was wrestling or in a spot of authority. That is where Steve Austin said that Daniel Bryan could win, by taking advantage of Triple H’s ego.
