Stone Cold Steve Austin called it a career after his match against Dwayne Johnson at WrestleMania 19. However, almost two decades later, at WrestleMania 38, Austin made his shocking return and wrestled Kevin Owens one-on-one. Much to the surprise of the WWE Universe, Austin looked as good as he did in his prime. 

After defeating Kevin Owens on Night 1, Austin made his appearance on Night 2 and dished out Stunners to Austin Theory, Pat McAfee, and Vince McMahon.
