A tweet from WWE star Kevin Owens had led to many fans thinking precisely the same thing.
The Quebec-born wrestler is looking to secure a tag team title for the first time in his career. However, his WrestleMania 38 plans would be far from confirmed if he fails to do so. Owens doesn’t currently have a scheduled opponent for the card.
On the February 7 edition of Raw, he cut a promo to ask general managers Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville for a WrestleMania match in Texas.
He also spoke about his love for the people of Texas – although he quickly discarded those feelings the following week.
The constant references to the US state had fans questioning who his WrestleMania opponent is scheduled to be. But then it was reported by wrestling journalist Bryan Alvarez that a stunning opponent has been discussed for the showpiece event. That opponent is none other than ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.
The Kevin Owens tweet that has fans talking
On Twitter, Kevin Owens replied to a WWE fan who asked him if he was a fan of beer and beer baths.
He said: “Beer is gross, man.” Plenty of fans in the comments came to the same conclusion.
Throughout his career in WWE, one of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s infamous traits was to drink an entire can of beer inside the ring. Sometimes, he would do this with another wrestler in a friendly manner. On other occasions, he would boot the other wrestler in the chest before delivering a ‘Stone Cold Stunner’.
Then there was the time that Austin drove to the ring in a van and showered the villainous Corporation stable with a beer shower.
And Owens’s reference to beer led to WWE fans making the same reference.
Whether Owens does take on Austin at WrestleMania remains to be seen, but fans are certainly engaged in the discussion.
If the ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ does come back, it will be his first fight since WrestleMania 19. He lost to The Rock on that occasion. Austin retired from wrestling due to injuries, predominantly a neck injury caused in 1997. The problem plagued him throughout the remainder of his career, even during his days as arguably the top wrestler in the company.
If Austin does return, he is sure to get a crowd reaction of the like we have perhaps never heard before.
