In the lead up to WrestleMania 32, the WWE had teased the possibility of several shock appearances at the AT&T Stadium show. Now that the record-breaking event is over, it is pretty clear they didn't disappoint.
The likes of Tatanka, Diamond Dallas Page, NBA Hall of Famer Shaq and John Cena all turned up in Arlington, Texas to stun the 100,000-plus crowd. Nothing, though, compared to the arrival of Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
The legendary trio arrived at the Showcase of the Immortals in the aftermath of the tag team match between The New Day and The League of Nations, and Austin rolled back the years to hand out not one, but three Stunners. Scroll down this article to see the Texas Rattlesnake in vintage form.

The League of Nations were actually busy gloating over their win over the New Day when the trio of legends appeared. From the moment the infamous sound of glass smashing filled the AT&T Stadium, it was a tour de force from Austin in particular.
First to pay the price were Rusev and King Barett:
Not complete with laying out two members of the LON, Stone Cold saved one last stunner for the New Day's Xavier Woods as the main roster star tried to celebrate with him in the aftermath of the carnage:
From his iconic entrance to his signature move and the customary celebratory beer, Austin's shock return had everything WWE fans could have hoped for and the pops got louder as each moment came to pass.
Watching Stone Cold strut his stuff in his home state will surely become one of the most memorable moments of WrestleMania 32 - well, for everyone other than Rusev, Barrett and Woods that is.
Let's not forget Foley and Michaels though. The latter was looking in incredible shape as he bound down the runway into the ring and both veteran superstars produced their own signature moves to see off the League of Nations.
The only negative of the whole segment was the realisation that it might be some time before we see any of Foley, Michaels or Austin back in a WWE ring.
In appearing last night, the trio appeared more than happy to help the WWE create history at WrestleMania 32. Whether they would be willing to appear in any other less high-profile events moving forward is unlikely.
If that was to be the last we see of Austin, however, what way for the Texas Rattlesnake to bow out.
