Stone Cold Steve Austin’s documentary

According to former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia, the producers of Michael Jordan’s ‘The Last Dance’ documentary are working on a documentary about Steve Austin.  This is huge news for the WWE Hall of Famer and WWE itself. The Last Dance documentary received plaudits from critics and fans. A documentary about the Texas Rattlesnake will surely be a groundbreaking one.

Garcia revealed the news during an interview on The Chris Van Vliet Show, where she said she would be a part of the new film. “WWE contacted me and they said the producers from The Last Dance are going to reach out to you,” Garcia told host Chris Van Vliet. “They want you in their documentary. It’s crazy because when I got the message I was literally just watching The Last Dance documentary.”
