Kevin Owens is set to host returning “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at the “KO Show” next month. Owens had been calling out the Rattlesnake for months and he finally got his attention. Austin promised to bring can of whoop ass to Owens at WrestleMania 38.
Austin is not the only legend that wants to get a piece of Owens. Former WWE superstar Rhino has also set his sights on the Canadian. The ECW legend has listed Owens as one of the people he’d love to wrestle outside the proverbial Forbidden Door.
“I don’t know why Kevin Owens name just popped in my head because I’m here in Philly and probably at the area, that would be a really cool [match].” said the former ECW Champion during a recent appearance on The Angle podcast. Rhino said that he wishes to wrestle for the next five years.
“I’m at that point where I’m starting to be less in the ring and more behind the scenes and that’s one of the beauties I love about IMPACT. Soon I can start producing. Hopefully, I can get 5 more years in the ring full time. I would definitely like to do one of my last shows in the arena. Hopefully, I have the ability to choose to walk away.”
The two aren’t stranger to each other in the squared circle and went toe to toe during Owens’ stint in Ring of Honor. Owens (then known as Kevin Steen) successfully retained the ROH title against The Man Beast at the promotion’s Death Before Dishonor X: State of Emergency event in September 2012.
