Wrestlemania 30 was the last time the WWE Universe saw The Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin grace a WWE ring as he starred in a popular segment alongside WWE Hall of Famer's The Rock and Hulk Hogan. The Beer Drinking Redneck was all smiles with the WWE Universe pleased to see the wrestling icon after such a long absence.
However The Rattlesnake has since disappeared from the WWE, dropping ties with both NXT and the WWE Network fuelling speculation that the foul mouthed redneck has lost interest in the company.
Austin, 49, who hosts his own podcast with wrestling guests from both past and present stated in an interview with WWE star Chris Jericho that:
"The WWE had lost it's flair, with no uniqueness and the same regurgitated garbage."
However the Rattlesnake went on to defend the company by expressing he felt that the WWE was developing through a "transitional" stage which Austin believes is down to the company's PG certificate.
Several of the WWE superstars and the company's most loyal fans seem to be becoming more and more disgruntled with the company's PG era with Attitude era fans keen to see a darker John Cena and the return of a little more ruthless aggression, something Stone Cold Steve Austin would know all about.
- WWE superstar turns down return to the ring
- Two cage matches and Bray Wyatt plays tricks - Smackdown review 7th October
- Cryptic message aimed at Dolph Ziggler opens the door for returning superstar
However it seems as though the WWE are in no rush to alter their PG stance, with The Rattlesnake objecting to alter his character to fit a child friendly audience.
It seems unlikely that the WWE Universe are set to see The Beer Drinking, foul mouthed Rattlesnake any time soon.
