Talking to TVA Sports to promote WrestleMania, Kevin Owens went into detail about finding out that his plans for the biggest show of the year involved “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
While he usually asks about his plans around November, his recent new contract made him wait until January, which is when he was informed about the plans: “Usually, in November I start asking questions, to try to find ideas and see if they have ideas. This year, I took a different approach. I had just signed my contract, I had my history with Seth Rollins so I thought to myself that I was in a good position. So I started asking questions in January and when I spoke to Vince (McMahon), he was the one who told me that his plan was to bring Austin back for a night and that would be with me. I was super happy! When it’s not 100% announced, things can always change. But one week before the event, I fully realize it and I can’t wait.”
