WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. His contributions to the world of professional wrestling will always be remembered. It seems Kevin Owens shared an amusing story about meeting Steve Austin as well.

As reported earlier, WWE is discussing a WrestleMania 38 match for Steve Austin and the company is already working under the assumption that Steve Austin vs Kevin Owens is a done deal.

While speaking on the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, Kevin Owens shared a story of him and Sami Zayn being at an airport in Texas on their way to California for a PWG show back in 2005. During that time, both of them had an amusing interaction with Steve Austin as well.

“I walked to get a drink of water and I happen to see that it’s Stone Cold. So, I go over to Sami, he looks at me and I go, ‘Come on, we definitely have to go talk to Stone Cold.’ So he follows me. I said we’re going to go talk to Stone Cold and he thought I said, ‘Let’s go fight these guys.’ So as we’re walking towards Austin, he goes, ‘Who are we fighting?’ I’m like, what?

So we walked up to him and introduced ourselves. We said we were independent wrestlers on our way to California for a show. He was so nice, very friendly. We had a brief chat about the business and how the independents work because obviously he hadn’t been on the independent scene in a while. Of course Mr. Fancy Pants was in First Class so he had to go. I go, ‘Dude if you have one piece of advice for us, what is it?’ And he goes, ‘Just keep running your mouth. Just never stop running your mouth.’ And then he got on the flight.”

WWE is currently waiting for Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins’ tag team program to end before they get started on Owens and Austin’s feud. It remains to be seen when WWE will start booking Owens and Austin for WrestleMania 38.
