WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin had finally addressed rumors regarding the reason he did not attend WrestleMania 33 week on his podcast.

Austin noted that he recently sold his ranch in Texas, and the timing of the sale and everything that came with it conflicted with WrestleMania weekend. “I had a lot of irons in the fire,” Austin said.

WWE did reach out and invite him to attend the big event, but Austin said he appreciated the offer and informed the person who extended it that he was too busy with other obligations.

“I will always be a part of the WWE,” said Austin. “The WWE will always be a part of my life. Man, I’m in this thing for the rest of my life. That’s the relationship I have with the WWE. So there’s never been no heat, no this, no that, no whatever. I’m at a great place with those guys and I’m thankful for everything they’ve done for me, I’m sure they are thankful for the things I did for them. Again, I’m a WWE member for life.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
