Stone Cold Steve Austin has accepted Kevin Owens’ challenge and he will be at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, Texas.
On the February 7th episode of Monday Night Raw, after weeks of teases and speculation, Kevin Owens laid down a challenge to Stone Cold Steve Austin.
After missing out on the Raw Tag Team Titles alongside Seth Freakin’ Rollins early in the show, Owens found his road to WrestleMania 38 well and truly blocked. That was until he had another idea. After retuning to the ring, Owens said he was going to host the most stupendous KO Show in history, before he called out the WWE Hall of Famer.
“I know you’re watching, and I don’t think you have the guts to show up, but the bottom line is that I’m calling you out, Stone Cold Steve Austin!”
Stone Cold Steve Austin has now responded, and announced that he will meet Owens at WrestleMania 38.
“19 years ago I wrestled my last match in a WWE ring. After three Rock Bottom’s, one, two, three, I lost the match. And for 19 years I’ve had to live with that defeat, knowing my time was up.
Kevin Owens, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for waking something up deep inside me that I’ve kept buried for 19 years. Ever since you started running that damn-mealy mouth of yours, talking about the state of Texas, the great state of Texas, you got my attention. And why would you want to do that Kevin?
I can think of two reasons. One. You are one dumb son of a bitch! Two. You are 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, whatever. I will guarantee you this. In Dallas, Texas where I started my career, at WrestleMania, Stone Cold Steve Austin is gonna open up one last can of whoop-ass on you Kevin Owens.
And that’s the bottom line, ’cause Stone Cold said so.”
