Stone Cold Steve Austin had dinner in New York City this past Thursday night with UFC Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman, who has been the on-air manager for both Lesnar and Austin in his career.

Austin posted 3 tweets about the dinner on his Twitter account (http://twitter.com/steveaustinbsr). In the first tweet, Austin wrote "had dinner with paul heyman and brock lesner. what a night! so good to see paul. a good friend and such a tremendous influence on my career."

Then Austin continued, saying "had dinner with paul e. and brock lesner. brock is a one in a million athlete and a future UFC hall of famer. one very bad ass cool guy."

Austin continued, noting "didn’t have enuff characters to cover paul and brock in one tweet. both guys are friends of mine."

Heyman, who attended UFC 111 with Lesnar and sat next to the UFC Champion in the front row at the event, responded on the Heyman Hustle Twitter page (www.twitter.com/heymanhustle) 3 tweets of his own about Austin.

Heyman wrote, "What a great night. I am so proud of ur accomplishments. You ROCK in Damage! Well, maybe "Rock" is the wrong term."

Heyman then wrote, "You are the same guy I met almost 20 yrs in Atlanta. Ur a No-BS, standup man’s man, and I am so proud to be your friend."

He wrapped it up with, "To have been an influence on THAT career was truly a privilege. I am humbled by ur statement, and thank u so much."
