• WWE Hall Of Famer Not Happy With Kevin Owens Getting Squashed At SummerSlam 2018
During a recent edition of the Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin gave his views on the SummerSlam 2018 PPV.
Below are the highlights:
On Braun Strowman squashing Kevin Owens:
“I hope Kevin Owens can claw his way back to where he was. Hopefully, they’re booking him to get back to where he was. I’m a big fan of both guys. I’m friends with both guys, but, man, with Braun, Braun is a big guy. And Kevin has been in the picture for a lot of titles, held a lot of titles, and I just thought, ‘man, he didn’t get s*** in, so, eh, I just wasn’t a fan.
Yeah, I just didn’t think Kevin Owens needed to get steamrolled because he’s a top guy. And, obviously, Braun Strowman is still green, but he’s a top guy. They’re grooming him for bigger and better things, but KO didn’t need to get squashed in the process.”
On Roman Reigns finally defeating Brock Lesnar to become the Universal Champion:
“I just think for what it was, the action that did happen before it was over, because it didn’t last very long. I enjoyed the match. I knew they were in a tough spot, Roman came out really nice. Man, the crowd popped when he won!
It could have gone the other way, but the way they had it set up, they came out of this thing smelling like a rose. And so who knows what’s on the backside or moving into the future with Roman? I guess Brock will go to fight in the MMA or whatever. I don’t know what his deal is. Strowman is in the picture. I loved the physicality with Brock and Strowman.
I loved Strowman getting beat with the briefcase and chucking the thing up the damn ramp. Oh yeah, it was great! But, dude, they popped pretty damn big for Roman, so they really made the most out of the situation that they could, in my opinion.”

• Another Huge Return Being Planned For SmackDown 1000
The historic 1000th episode of SmackDown will air on October 16 and expect a lot of surprises to take place on the show.
One of these surprises could be the return of former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio as a permanent member of the WWE main roster on the SmackDown Live brand.
According to the Dirty Sheets, Mysterio has signed with WWE and that’s why he was pulled from a recent indy show. Mysterio is expected to be a part of SmackDown Live and WWE could be saving his return for SmackDown 1000.
It should be noted that Mysterio signed an actual performers contract along with a 2K contract for WWE 2K19.
Another return that’ll take place on the 1000th episode of SmackDown is that of The Undertaker.
This will be The Undertaker’s second WWE TV (RAW, SmackDown) appearance of 2018. He appeared at RAW 25 earlier this year.
That’s not it. SmackDown 1000 is expected to feature another huge return.
According to the Fired Up podcast, The Rock is also expected to appear on this historic show and WWE officials are very close to reaching a deal with The Rock for his appearance on the show that was named after him.
The following matches are also being advertised for SmackDown 1000:
– WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe
– Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy
– Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
It should be noted that the above card is subject to change (in case a new champion is crowned or someone gets injured).
