Last month, WWE dropped the biggest bombshell in recent memory. The company has announced that WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin may have an in-ring match at the upcoming WrestleMania 38 in Texas.

Ever since that news, the WWE Universe has gone absolutely nuts. Now, for a match against Steve Austin, WWE has chosen former Universal Champion Kevin Owens. Interestingly, both wrestlers have the same knockout move: The Stunner.

However, fans are a bit upset with how the company builds the feud between the Texas Rattlesnake and the Prizefighter. Fans on the internet are also very upset with Austin, as they don’t think Owens’ hatred of Texas is the main reason he’s coming back.

One fan absolutely listed all the different feuds that directly involved the Rattlesnake following his retirement from WWE. The fan wrote about Goldberg, Randy Orton, John Cena and CM Punk.

However, the fan is angry because WWE is bringing him back just because Kevin Owens doesn’t like Texas.

A fan wrote that Austin was only coming back because of the money.

A fan recalled the backstage segment between Punk and Austin in the early 2010s.

A fan from Texas admitted that this buildup is awful and that the company could have used a different route to attract the heat.

A fan used an image of SpongeBob SquarePants to show what made Austin return to wrestling.

Fans have noted that what Owens is saying is childish and doesn’t sit well with the audience.

They even claim it as the “the weakest” way to build a WrestleMania match.

WWE still hasn’t officially announced Stone Cold Steve Austin for WrestleMania

Yes, the Texas Rattlesnake coming back inside the squared circle is a big deal. Austin’s last WWE match was in 2003 when he fought longtime rival The Rock at WrestleMania 19.

Now, fans are having mixed reactions to Austin’s return. Perhaps WWE can change Kevin Owens’ current storyline. Although the match was not officially announced, Owens took cheeky jabs at Texas, indicating Austin’s arrival.
