WWE Hall of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is widely recognized as one of the greatest professional wrestlers to have ever stepped inside the squared circle. He came out of in-ring retirement for an unexpected match at WrestleMania 38 against Kevin Owens, which was highly acclaimed by fans and pro wrestlers alike. Now it appears that Austin revealed a very interesting story where he had a bonding moment with Brock Lesnar and Pat McAfee at WrestleMania 38.
The Texas Rattlesnake squared off against Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred match, where the pro wrestling legend took a ton of bumps throughout the match. In the end, Austin stood tall and celebrated in a way only he knew how.
In the main event of WrestleMania 38, Brock Lesnar squared off against Roman Reigns to determine the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. In the end, The Tribal Chief came out on top.
While speaking with TMZ Sports, Steve Austin shared a very interesting behind-the-scenes story that took place at WrestleMania 38. Austin revealed that he had a bonding moment with Brock Lesnar and Pat McAfee, as they all shared a drink in Brock Lesnar’s locker room.
“So, the show happens. I go out there, stun all those cats. Brock Lesnar gets done with his match, the main event with Roman Reigns. And me and Brock have been wanting to bond together and have a few cocktails to begin with, and he goes, ‘hey man, you got anything?’ I said, ‘yeah.’ I said, ‘where we’re meeting?’ He goes, ‘my locker room.’ So, was myself, Brock Lesnar, Larry (one of the trainers who’s been there forever), and Pat McAfee. We just passed the bottle around.
First we were drinking out of little cups then it just turned into the bottle, and we took down a fifth of Maker’s Mark in about an hour, and then we all went our separate ways. And I heard that a couple of those guys woke up with severe headaches.
But it was a bonding moment, you know, after a big show like that, us four guys. And I just met, barely met Pat, but he was already one of the boys because of his football background and how everybody in WWE is taken to him. And me and Brock’s relationship goes back a long way as does Larry. So, it was a good time. And that was one of my highlights of WrestleMania, a behind the scenes moment that I shared with you.”
We will have to wait and see whether Steve Austin will make his return to WWE television somewhere down the line. After all, fans really missed him after Austin wasn’t able to compete at WrestleMania 39 this year.
