• Steve Austin & Vince McMahon On The Verge Of A Real-Life Fall Out
According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin & Vince McMahon are on the verge of a real-life fall out.
Vince McMahon is unhappy that Austin has refused all offers to appear at a WWE PPV in Saudi Arabia. On the other hand, Austin is unhappy about the fact that it was the USA Network that approached him to do a talk show (Straight Up Steve Austin) after RAW (to help increase RAW viewership) and not the WWE.
WWE’s only input was to have a lot of WWE Superstars appear on Austin’s talk show. Austin agreed to have Becky Lynch appear on the show, but rejected WWE’s first choice (The Miz & Maryse).
That’s not it. Austin has invited Jon Moxley (f.k.a Dean Ambrose in WWE) to appear on his podcast and Vince McMahon is not happy with this.
Austin approached Moxley last week regarding a podcast appearance and this move was orchestrated by Chris Jericho.
Moxley is expected to appear on Austin’s podcast before All Elite Wrestling’s ALL OUT pay-per-view on August 31.
