The reason why he did not is because Storm respects Steve Austin. The two of them are friends in real life, so he did not want to do anything remotely close to being gimmick infringement. Austin is known for always having beer with him.

From the moment that Dixie Carter revealed the big secret meeting earlier today, fans have been speculating like crazy on what Steve Austin has planned. The belief is that the two of them discussed business, which means that the former world heavyweight champion might be heading to TNA. That would be a tremendous boost to the promotion to have a legend like him on board. It would also be a great way to stick it to Vince McMahon.
