Is The Texas Rattlesnake About to Go ‘One More Round’ in Dallas?
If you grew up in the 90s, you knew who the Texas Rattlesnake 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin was. Austin wasn't just the face of the WWF/E, he was a cultural icon. From appearances on popular games shows like 'The Weakest Link' to movies like the Expendables, Austin was literally everywhere. Heck, he's still everywhere to this very day with his own line of beer, hosting popular TV shows and appearing in commercials for Tide. He and the Rock are the most popular and transcendent pro wrestlers of the 90s & 00s.
Austin, however, had to quit wrestling 19 years ago due to several injuries including severe damage to his neck. But, it sounds like the Texas Rattlesnake may be coming out of retirement for one more match in Dallas, Texas.
In case you haven't kept up with wrestling in a while, WrestleMania is taking place this year in Dallas. And for weeks now, Kevin Owens has been running down the state of Texas and some of its more famous residents including Steve Austin - who proudly hails from Victoria, Texas.
While Austin recently responded to all of Kevin Owens' trash talking and it appears that Stone Cold has one more giant can of 'Whoop Ass' to open. Here's what Austin had to say in response to Owens on WWE's Facebook page.
While it has long been rumored that Stone Cold would be involved in WrestleMania in some capacity because it's in his backyard, that sounds like he's going to be doing a lot more than just drinking some beer with fans. In fact, during the above promo, Austin says he accepts whatever Owens' challenge is whether be a match or brawl.
It's been 19 years since the last time Stone Cold graced the ring to do anything other than flip some birds and drink some beers. If he's got one more can of whoop ass to open, it would be pretty awesome to see that moment live. Because, let's face it, this probably really is the last time.
If you're interested in attending WrestleMania at AT&T Stadium (aka Cowboys Stadium), tickets are available now. If you just want to watch the action on TV, you can stream this premium live event and every other WWE broadcast on the Peacock streaming service.
Either way, if you're pumped to see Steve Austin stomp a mudhole in somebody and walk it dry, GIVE ME A HELL YEAH!
