• Stone Cold Steve Austin Turns Down WWE’s Plan For WrestleMania 35

According to the Dirty Sheets, WWE officials pitched a plan that would’ve seen WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin being a part of Elias’ segment at WrestleMania 35, but Austin has turned it down.

WWE wanted to go back to Austin’s signing days from 2001 and have him do something with a Guitar during Elias’ segment. This segment would’ve also involved WWE Hall of Famers Jeff Jarrett, Road Dogg & Honky Tonk Man.

However, Austin wasn’t impressed by the plan and turned it down.

As we noted yesterday, The Undertaker is now planned to interrupt Elias at WrestleMania 35, deliver a Tombstone Piledriver and leave (no match is planned for Taker as of this writing).
