This is not the first time a person from a different sport celebrated like Steve Austin after their accomplishments. Back in 2021, UFC heavyweight, Tai Tuivasa celebrated like Austin after his win at UFC 269.

Stone Cold Steve Austin might be at WrestleMania 38

Earlier this year, various reports suggest that the Texas Rattlesnake might be at this year’s WrestleMania. However, he will not just be a host or a special attraction of that night. Instead, he is rumored to be involved in some in-ring action at the ‘Showcase of the Immortals’.

Austin is said to be in the ring with the former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens. There has been no official announcement on WWE TV or their website. However, Owens has already started to tease his match-up with Austin.

These days, Owens would openly show his hatred for Texas and even take this out on his Twitter handle and on live TV. This could all lead up to an angle between Austin and Owens. Because Austin is from Texas and Owens has been nothing but disrespectful to Texas.
