Steve Austin Says He's Lucky To Finish His Career In Dallas, Praises The WWE Universe

Steve Austin returned to the ring on Saturday at WrestleMania, wrestling in an official match against Kevin Owens in the main event.

Austin was initially invited as a guest on the KO Show, but Owens revealed he wanted a match with the "Texas Rattlesnake." Owens got his wish as Austin opened one more can of whoop ass.

"I came here looking for anything," Austin said in a backstage interview with WWE. "This is where I started and I was lucky enough to finish here. KO is outstanding, but he ran his mouth a little too much and it finally caught up with him. It was an honor to be here on such a stacked card with so many great matches."

When asked how the moment felt, Austin replied, "You just love the crowd, you love the crowd, the guys and gals before me had so many great matches. It's really hard to follow that, but you live and die by that crowd. This crowd is so faithful, so loyal, so rambunctious, they're behind everything you do. I give a shout out to the WWE superstars that worked before me and will work tomorrow night, but I give the biggest shout out to the crowd because I never expected to headline a WrestleMania at this day and time. It's all about the WWE Universe."

Austin kicked out of a Stunner by Owens before finishing off KO with a Stunner of his own. In typical Steve Austin fashion, he closed the night with a beer celebration, and even saved up a Stunner for Byron Saxton.
