There were rumors last week that Stone Cold Steve Austin, who lives in the Los Angeles Area, might have made an appearance at Staples Center for RAW last week.
According to Austin himself, those rumors were categorically untrue.
Speaking on the latest episode of his podcast, Austin said this:
“There has been word on the street, on my Twitter account, on all the sheets, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin has indeed been spotted at the Staples Center. Well I can vouch for you or I can clarify that right now; if somebody thought they spotted me, they was wrong. I’m at 316 gimmick street in Marina del Rey. Staples Center is about 20 miles from my house, I ain’t nowhere in sight, I ain’t wearing camo, you can’t see me, because I ain’t there. I’m here at the house laying down an open for this damn podcast.”
So it must have been some other big, bald, goateed gentleman that someone saw backstage.
I'd make a "Goldberg Return Confirmed" joke if I thought it would be funny.
