WWE changes plans for Stone Cold Steve Austin

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 Wrestlemania 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-based company ring, with Stone Cold who was to have had his first match at Wrestlemania after contesting its 19th edition, against the Canadian Kevin Owens, who has been making fun of Texas and the people of that US state for weeks.

Latest update on Stone Cold Steve Austin

There have been rumours circulating which suggest that Stone Cold Steve Austin will soon be returning to in-ring action in WWE. It is being said that Austin has finally agreed to make a comeback because of how big the payday is going to be.

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, it is classified in the internal cards as a simple comparison." Austin's last match at WrestleMania was against The Rock at WrestleMania 19.

The Rock was finally able to beat Austin in what was an epic trilogy of matches. ''Austin, 57, has not wrestled since his 2003 WrestleMania loss to The Rock. It was never promoted as his retirement match because he did not want to promote it as such, and it was kept secret until the match was over that he would not wrestle again,'' said Meltzer.
