Monday Night RAW was in Toronto, Canada last night and Kevin Owens has sent the internet into meltdown after he appeared to quit as part of the show.
Owens has had a rough few months after being bullied by Braun Strowman and then defeated by him at SummerSlam when the Money In The Bank contract was on the line.
The WWE Universe isn’t just talking about Owen’s comments on RAW, it appears that the former Universal Champion decided to deliver the Stone Cold Stunner to Seth Rollins. Of course, this is a finisher that has become iconic with the WWE Universe because of WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin who has commented on Owens’ use of his move.

Of course, Steve Austin hasn’t been able to be part of a WWE match for a number of years, since he is unable to be cleared for competition, but this could set up an interesting storyline moving forward. Owens could have quit RAW and he’s already been fired from SmackDown Live, which means that WWE must have something up their sleeves when it comes to his future.
Stone Cold Steve Austin was last seen at RAW 25, but could easily make an appearance in the future especially since WWE are now in the spirit of bringing back some of their biggest legends.
The Rock is currently the favorite to win the Royal Rumble in January with rumors that Roman Reigns could be defending against the former Champion at WrestleMania 35. If The Rock is open to a WWE return on the future then Stone Cold Steve Austin could easily follow his lead.
This could also just be Owens paying tribute to one of his biggest heroes and Austin responding to the use of his move and this may not go any further, but it is interesting that Austin has felt the need to comment.
