Before the RKO, there was the infamous Stunner delivered by none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Back in the day, Stone Cold use to kill the opponent with his finishing move Stunner, and then pop open a few cans of beer right on their graves!
Such was the swag, and Aura of the wrestler, and now 57, he is about to enter that WWE ring one more time.
He is set to make his return when WrestleMania 38 rolls around on the 2nd of April. He will clash with Kevin Owens!
Kevin Owens’ chance to capture the tag team title with Seth Rollins was dashed after RK-Bro won the Tag Team Triple Threat match.
While Rollins was still reeling from his defeat, Kevin Owens made a surprise announcement and invited WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold to a special WWE WrestleMania 38 edition of The KO Show.
Owens has been raving about his hatred for the state of Texas (where WrestleMania will be held this year and where Austin is from), at the end of this week’s Monday Night Raw, and that is where he called Austin out to wrestle with him at the grandest of the stage.
On Tuesday, Steve Austin stated that he will be at WrestleMania 38 to face Kevin Owens on The KO Show. Austin responded to Kevin Owens’s call and posted a video.
WWE finally released a video of Steve Austin’s response to Kevin Owens’ offer.
Steve Austin while responding to Kevin Owens invitation said:
“19 years ago I wrestled my last match in WWE, after 3 rock bottoms, I lost the match. And for the last 19 years, I have had to live with that defeat knowing my time is up.
“Kevin Owens I want to thank you…thank you for waking up something deep inside me that I’ve kept buried for 19 years. Ever since you started running that mealy-mouth of yours about the state of Texas, the Great State of Texas, you’ve had my attention.
“And why would you wanna do that Kevin? I can think of two reasons, One you’re one dumb son of a b****, and two, you’re fixing to get your ass kicked by Stone Cold Steve Austin.
“Whether you wanna call this a KO Show, a Match, a Fight, A Brawl…I will guarantee you this, in Dallas TX, is where I started my career, at WrestleMania, Stone Cold Steve Austin is gonna open on last can of whoop a** on you Kevin Owens.
“And that’s the bottom line because Stone Cold Said so.”
