In recent weeks, there has been a lot of talk about some important plans for Wrestlemania 38, with some very famous names in the world pro-wrestling scene being rumored as possible protagonists of this year's Showcase of the Immortals, including the federation chairman, Vince McMahon.
After realizing that Vince McMahon will not be present at Wrestemania 38 as a wrestler, but with the Chairman who preferred to decline his active participation, to give space to Austin Theory and Pat McAfee, although initially it seemed possible a somewhat secluded role in the controversy, more news now emerges on the role of WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin.
The Texan Rattlesnake, in fact, was rumored in a real match after 19 years of inactivity in the Stamford company ring, with Stone Cold who should have had a match after Wrestlemania 19, right in the show edition of the shows, against the Canadian Kevin Owens, who has been making fun of Texas and the people of that US state for weeks.
In the last few hours there seem to have been further updates on the story of the most famous Hall of Famer of the WWE Attitude Era, with Steve Austin who would have been moved to a simple segment and not a real match in April.
As reported in the last hours by the well-known Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, in fact: "The big thing is that they all wanted Vince and they also wanted Austin because they would have sold a lot of tickets, having a lot left and Pat McAfee vs Austin Theory isn't going to sell who knows how many.
And Steve Austin and Kevin Owens is, you know, they're going to have a confrontation, but it's not clear if it's going to be a real match or not. At this point, it all essentially depends on Austin. They (WWE and management ed) want the match, and they thought they already had a match in their hands, and you know, Steve, there's a reason he hasn't fought for 19 years.
I only know that until Friday he had not yet agreed to play a match even though he had been included in the primordial card of the event. Now, he is classified in the internal cards as a simple comparison."
Steve Austin will be in Texas on Wrestlemania weekend!
In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about all those great athletes and celebrities who could appear after years or even for the first time in the WWE rings at Wrestlemania 38. If for the moment the only one confirmed for a match at Wrestlemania is Logan Paul, famous American actor and youtuber, who will join forces with The Miz, in a tag team match against Rey and Dominik Mysterio, there are numerous other names considered for the Showcase of the Immortals.
Another celebrity who will surely tread the Wrestlemania rings, will in fact be Johnny Knoxville, who returned to show up in the last episode of Friday Night Smackdown, just two days ago, being brutally attacked by the new Intercontinental Champion of the blue show, Sami Zayn.
Most likely, the two will in fact go to clash in a match at the Showcase of the Immortals, in a contest that will just as likely see the Canadian put his newly won champion belt up for grabs against the Japanese Nakamura.
But who else could take part in WWE's biggest show of the year of wrestlers or insiders who don't usually get in the ring? Apparently, the last great names brought up by WWE insiders would be those of Stone Cold Steve Austin, rumored in a match against Kevin Owens and even the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon, who could go to battle with the reporter Pat McAfee.
Apparently, on the Thursday before Wrestlemania 38, Stone Cold Steve Austin will be present at a convention in his home state of Texas, with this latter clue that brings the WWE Hall of Famer even closer to his probable presence in that of the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Although it is not yet known for sure that Austin will participate in the event, let alone that the Hall of Famer will take part in a match in any way, what is certain is that a few days before the live broadcast of the most important ppv of the year, Austin will be one step away from Dallas, with the same Hall of Famer who has in fact advertised the event in which he will be a guest.
