• The Undertaker & Steve Austin Not Happy About Last Week’s SmackDown
Despite WWE advertising a lot of legends for last night’s SmackDown’s 20th anniversary show on FOX, The Rock was the only legend that had a proper segment. Other legends just appeared in attendance for the show.
Major names like Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker didn’t even appear in attendance despite being advertised.
A fan posted the following under a recent photo that The Undertaker posted on Instagram:
“@undertaker Shoulda had you on at the end instead of that ending bro…”
The Undertaker replied the following to this fan:
“I was told I wasn’t needed…”
Below is a screenshot of this:
According to Brad Shepard, Undertaker & Austin were a little ticked off about WWE advertising them and then not using them on the show. It should be noted that both of them were backstage at the show and not used.
Many people backstage in WWE were shocked at the fact that WWE didn’t even show Austin in attendance for SmackDown matches. Other major names like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Goldberg were seen in attendance for various matches.
