The Tampa Bay Lightning forward recently attended RAW at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla., and spoke about his experience at a press conference. Radio host Jay Recher was at the conference and uploaded a video of Maroon’s comments.
Pat was asked who his favorite wrestler and three-time Stanley Cup champion named Stone Cold Steve Austin is.
“You might see me in the ring one day. My favorite wrestler, I mean I go back then, is probably Stone Cold Steve Austin. Wrestling isn’t the same as it used to be, these matches at the former were awesome. But yeah, we had a blast. WWE was awesome.” [00:08 – 00:24]
Pat added that he had a blast on RAW and praised the show’s production.
“It was awesome. You know, I love wrestling. It was fun to watch it that close and the production behind the scenes too. So it was really cool.” [00:33 – 00:42]

The Baddest Woman on the Planet Says She Accidentally Breastfed in the WWE Hall of Fame. The 35-year-old said Stone Cold was really cool about it and the two have now named each other after the incident.
“I breastfed Steve. I call him Steve now because once you breastfeed someone you’re on a first name basis, but he was really cool about it. And now I can say that probably only me and Kurt Angle have milk on Steve Austin. And it’s a great company. It was seamless.” (0:04 – 0:25)
