• Stone Cold Steve Austin Was Told Not To Throw Up The Middle Fingers At WrestleMania 38
WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin appeared on both nights of WrestleMania 38.
On Night 1, he defeated Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred match in the main event.
On Night 2, he hit Vince McMahon, Austin Theory and Pat McAfee with Stunners.
On The Pat McAfee Show, Pat revealed that WWE Producers told Stone Cold during rehearsals that he can’t throw up the middle fingers at WrestleMania.
Below is what McAfee said:
“He was working on coming out. And you know, we’re in a different era now of the WWE than we were then.
So I got to watch this dude’s entrance within an empty stadium or whatever. He goes right to that top rope, f**king both fingers straight up in the air. He’s doing his whole thing.
And then I see 3 producers running over, ‘Can’t do that. Can’t do that’. So he does it again. ‘Can’t do that.’ He was like, ‘Alright.’ So he just put his fist up or whatever.
So then as I was watching him [at the show], I was wondering, ‘There’s no way he keeps that middle finger down, the middle finger from Steve Austin is coming at some point.’ And then last night, he had a couple.”
