• John Cena Comments On Stone Cold Steve Austin Returning For WrestleMania 38
In the main event segment of this week’s RAW, Kevin Owens came out and said he will host his KO Show at WrestleMania 38.
Owens said the guest obviously has to be some lowlife from Texas. Owens brought up JBL, but turned him down. Owens brought up Booker T & Shawn Michaels, but turned them down too. He turned down HBK because he’s from Canada and he respects Bret Hart.
Owens said he’s going to choose “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who is past his prime, a shell of himself and his knees are shot. He said Austin has let himself go by drinking beer all day and might need a walker to come down the ramp at WrestleMania.
He said he will hit him with a Stunner that the world will talk about. Owens ended his promo by saying:
“I am calling you out, Stone Cold Steve Austin!”
WWE posted a video of Austin today, where Austin accepted Owens’ challenge.
Austin is ready to do whatever Owens wants to do, whether it be a talk show, fight, match, brawl, etc.
One thing is for sure – Austin plans to open a final can of whoop a$$ at WrestleMania 38.
