WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin discussed the passing of Jon Huber during an interview with The Wrap promoting the return of Straight Up Steve Austin this morning.

“I just absolutely couldn’t believe it because the guy was a tremendous hand in the business, but he was a sweetheart of a guy,” Austin said. “When he was in WWE, we would talk every now and then on the phone just about his character and what he was doing.

And I was like, ‘Holy cow, this guy is so young.’ And then I didn’t know what had happened.  There’s just an absolute tragedy of a guy who everybody in the business absolutely loved and adored,” he continued. “That’s the kind of guy he was. So really, really shocking to me.”
