“Stone Cold” Steve Austin wrestled his final match on the opening night of WrestleMania 38. Austin took on Kevin Owens in a no holds barred match in the main event on Saturday.
During Grillin’ JR, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross said he talked to Austin after his match against Owens at Mania 38. The legendary wrestling commentator referred to the whole confrontation as a masterpiece.
“I wasn’t gonna let the WrestleMania event pass by without checking out Stone Cold. You know, he and I talked going into that thing and we communicated on Saturday after the show.
“He seemed to be real happy and really almost relieved that they pulled it off. He and Kevin Owens deserve a hell of a lot of credit for what they did, and it shows you what kind of ballplayer Austin is.
“He hadn’t been on the field, what was it? 19 years, something like that. He didn’t look like he missed a step and they kept the match in their lane. I thought that was really smart.
“How they strategized and laid out that match, it was just absolutely a masterpiece, in my view. Kevin Owens deserves a lot of credit, as well. You gotta have a dancing partner to make these things work, and Steve had a great dancing partner.”
Austin returned on the final night of WrestleMania 38 to confront Vince McMahon and Theory. The Texas Rattlesnake sent Theory flying with a stunner before catching Vince with a surprise stunner.
