Steve Austin Accepts Kevin Owens Invitation For WWE WrestleMania 38

Can of whoop-ass primed and ready

As he looked to find a spot on the WrestleMania 38 card, Kevin Owens invited 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin to be his guest on the KO Show at The Showcase Of The Immortals on last night's episode of Monday Night Raw. 

This came after weeks of Owens insulting Texas and Austin accepted the former Universal Champion's invitation today, noting he planned to give KO "one last can of whoop-ass." 

"19 years ago I wrestled my last match in a WWE ring. After three Rock Bottoms, 1, 2, 3, I lost the match. For 19 years, I had to live with that defeat, knowing my time was up. Kevin Owens, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for waking something up deep inside me that I kept buried for 19 years. Ever since you started running that damn mealy-mouth of yours, talking about the state of Texas, the great state of Texas, you got my attention," Austin began.

"Why would you want to do that Kevin? I can think of two reasons. One, you are one dumb son of a b*tch. Two, you are fixing to get your ass kicked by 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin. Whether you want to call this the KO Show, a match, a fight, a brawl, whatever. I want to guarantee you this, in Dallas, Texas, where I started my career, at WrestleMania, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin is going to open one last can of whoop-ass on you, Kevin Owens. That's the bottom line, because Stone Cold said so."

The special edition of the KO Show will take place on WrestleMania Saturday inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. 

It originally appeared Austin would face Owens in a match at WrestleMania, competing inside the ring for the first time in 19 years, but it emerged over the weekend that Stone Cold's segment at 'Mania would be more than a simple confrontation but less than a full match.
