Booker T And Kevin Owens Exchange Shots On Social Media

Kevin Owens & Booker T

The feud between Kevin Owens and the entire state of Texas continues as the star and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T trade shots on social media.

For a number of weeks Kevin Owens has repeatedly made disparaging comments about the state of Texas and just about everyone in it. The former World Champion has taken aim at the Lone Star State in a number of promos on Monday Night Raw, as well as on social media.

It has been reported that these comments are to set up a match between himself and the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, Texas. However, to get to that potential big money match, Owens must at first survive an increasing number of retaliation attacks from a number of WWE’s Texan legends.

On March 2nd, John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield hit back at Owens in a clip posted on social media, warning the star not to come to Texas as it would “not end well for him.”

Seemingly taking inspiration from his fellow WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T posted his own video, calling Owens and liar and warning him against coming to Texas.

Never one to miss out on some verbal sparring, KO quickly hit back with a video of his own. Owens said that it was Booker who was the liar, as despite being from Texas, he spent years in a tag team called Harlem Heat. However, he understood people from Texas wanting to get away from it.

Should Steve Austin return to the ring at WrestleMania 38 to face Owens, it will be the first time he has competed in a match since WrestleMania 19 in 2003, when he was defeated by The Rock.

The latest report regarding Austin suggested that a match featuring him was “on the card” for WrestleMania 38.
