In recent weeks, one of the names that has been on everyone's lips the most in WWE and outside the McMahon federation, is undoubtedly that of WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin, with the world's most famous Texan.
pro-wrestling, who will return to show up in the Stamford company rings at Wrestlemania 38, where he will appear as a surprise guest on the Kevin Owens Show, of the Canadian athlete of the same name. After weeks of insults and teasing around the state of Texas, Kevin Owens came out, making it clear that the target of his insults was the Texan Rattlesnake, Steve Austin.
After the closing of Monday Night Raw with a promo dedicated to the Texan, Stone Cold himself wanted to confirm his presence at Wrestlemania, accepting Owens' invitation or challenge to appear at the Showcase of the Immortals.
Initially, however, WWE wanted a real match within the event card, with Steve Austin physically preparing for a real physical confrontation, which at this point is very likely to come. As confirmed by Dave Meltzer in his last speech to the microphones of Sunday Night's Main Event, Steve Austin would have returned to work hard in the gym in a very effective way, getting back in shape for a real fight in the ring, which hasn't arrived for almost 20 years for Austin.
In his speech, Meltzer in fact stated: "He and I talked to a mutual friend who told me he is back in great shape.
So, I mean, it's very likely he's going to take off his shirt. There will be a fight. There will be a fight, without a shadow of a doubt. He won't appear there simply to kick him where he doesn't beat the sun and a Stunner.
He is training very hard and so there is going to be a lot more than that. Will he have a 20-minute match? No, I really think not. Will he do something for seven minutes and get to have a fight across the hall? I expect such a thing, yes."
ill we see Johnny Boy in the WWE rings now?
