Steve Austin’s Status For WWE Raw 30 Confirmed

Steve Austin

With WWE advertising numerous Hall of Famers for the Raw 30th anniversary show, Stone Cold Steve Austin’s status for the show has been confirmed.

On the 11th of January 1993, the wrestling world changed forever when WWE debuted Raw – uncut, uncooked, uncensored – from the Manhattan Center in New York City. On that first edition, there happened to be some stars that would go on to become icons in the company and some that very much wouldn’t.

The Steiner Brothers, Yokozuna, and Koko B.Ware were all in action on the show as was The Undertaker who headlined the very first Raw with Damien DeMento and Shawn Michaels who competed in the inaugural title match on the show as he defended his Intercontinental Championship against Max Moon.

WWE has begun advertising a slew of legends for the special show with the likes of Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, and Ric Flair among many others set to appear.

Now speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair has discussed Stone Cold Steve Austin’s status for the show, and it doesn’t look like The Texas Rattlesnake will be in attendance:

“I talked to ‘Taker, I know Steve [Austin] can’t come, Hulkamania is coming. He confirmed to me last night he’s coming. Yeah, it’ll be fun, it’s always fun to see the guys. Love Ron Simmons, Road Dogg, put that graphic back up. It’s only two or three [on the graphic] that drink. You know Jerry doesn’t, you know Kurt doesn’t, you know Road Dogg doesn’t, you know Ron doesn’t, I won’t be able to find Shawn. I know that Nikki and Brie can drink.”

There may be a huge surprise in store for the show with “every generation” of The Bloodline set to be in attendance for a special “acknowledgement ceremony” for The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.
