• Vince McMahon Cancels Angle Between Stone Cold Steve Austin & Baron Corbin At RAW Reunion

According to The Dirty Sheets, “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin was originally set to interrupt Stone Cold Steve Austin’s promo at RAW Reunion and disrespect the legends.

Corbin would’ve then taken a Stunner from Austin to end the show.

However, Vince McMahon changed the plan halfway through the show and asked Austin to fill in the extra minutes during his promo. Vince gave Austin the freedom to ad-lib and didn’t tell any writer to script Austin’s promo.

Austin was caught off guard by this and asked Jonathan Coachman about what should he say during his promo. Austin’s original promo was only scheduled to last 45-60 seconds, as Corbin would’ve then interrupted him.
