Kevin Owens reacts to Steve Austin promo for WWE WrestleMania 38

Last updated

Stone Cold Steve Austin has officially accepted the challenge from Kevin Owens for WrestleMania 38, and now Owens has reacted on social media.

Owens made the challenge to The Rattlesnake on this week’s episode of WWE RAW, and Steve Austin officially responded less than 24 hours later.

Austin said in a video released by WWE: “Nineteen years ago I wrestled my last match in a WWE ring. After three Rock Bottoms, 1-2-3, I lost the match and for nineteen 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 nineteen years” Austin continued.

“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 b—h, and two, you are fixing to get your ass kicked by ’˜Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.

“But if you want to call this The 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 going to open up one last can of whoop-ass on you, Kevin Owens, and that’s the bottom line because Stone Cold said so” Austin concluded.
