WWE news: Steve Austin's empty arena 'Hell Yeah' is being called the greatest moment in history

Stone Cold Steve Austin made his return to WWE this week.

3:16 Day happened to fall on Monday, meaning the Texas Rattlesnake was able to celebrate on RAW.

Unfortunately, though, there was no live crowd to enjoy the moment with him. 

WWE are currently airing shows from the Performance Center in Orlando, with only essential staff allowed in the building. 

That gives them a rather eerie atmosphere, but it also helped deliver what some fans are calling the greatest moment in wrestling history.

When Stone Cold took to the ring, he gave himself a beer bath before asking the non-existent crowd to give him a ‘Hell Yeah!’  

He did it not once, but twice. The moment was made even better as WWE cameras cut to a row of empty seats to further embarrass the Hall of Famer. 

Check it out below: 

Incredible. WWE fans are clearly enjoying the clip and to say it’s gone viral is an understatement.

As of writing, it has over 120,000 retweets and 460,000 likes. Madness! 

It’s not just RAW and SmackDown that will air from the Performance Center in the coming weeks.

WWE have now confirmed that WrestleMania 36 will go-ahead from the same venue with no live audience. 

“In coordination with local partners and government officials, WrestleMania and all related events in Tampa Bay will not take place,” their statement read.

“However, WrestleMania will still stream live on Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view. 

“Only essential personnel will be on the closed set at WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida to produce WrestleMania.” 

It sounds crazy that WWE want to run the biggest show of the year in front of no fans, but right now, they’ve deemed it as their best option.
