WrestleMania 32 has been and gone, and while the show overall may have been just okay for some, it did deliver some very nostalgic moments involving superstars from the past.
Not only did we get to see The Undertaker compete in a Hell in a Cell match, but we also saw Shane McMahon perform another death-defying stunt by jumping off the top of the cell, and we saw three legends in the form of Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold Steve Austin, walk down to the ring and beat down the League of Nations.
All three WWE Hall of Famers delivered their finishers in front of the record-setting WrestleMania attendance at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Foley brought out Mr. Socko for the Mandible claw, Michaels delivered a Sweet Chin Music, and Steve Austin performed a Stone Cold Stunner on anyone he could grab, including The New Day's Xavier Woods.

On the Stone Cold podcast, according to the Inquisitr, The Texas Rattlesnake revealed he had actually torn his rotator cuff prior to The Showcase of The Immortals taking place but decided he would work on the show anyways.
He said: “After I’d already committed to Vince to be there, I tore my rotator cuff on my right shoulder. I tore the h*** out of it. It hurt like a b****…I can barely drink beer. This is my beer drinking arm! That’s what I was most upset about.
"[After the match] we had to start throwing punches. I threw that first punch at Rusev…and I hit him in the mouth or the nose, and he’s in the corner and he’s bleeding and I feel so bad for him because I really like Rusev…When I threw that first punch, I ripped everything in my shoulder. And I’m like, ‘Jesus Christ, you can’t stop throwing now.’…so we call for the beer and my shoulder is about to fall off!"
It's great to see what a legend of the WWE will do for the business despite being injured. He came in and worked and it didn't look like he had missed a beat. It didn't even look like he was hurting even though he said he was in incredible pain while punching Rusev.
Although rumors stated he wouldn't be at the show, he still appeared, put on a great performance, and he didn't let the fans down. Hopefully, he will be able to heal up and make another surprise appearance soon.
