Stone Cold Stunner

We begin with comments made by Stone Cold Steve Austin today. After his WrestleMania no-show there has been speculation that the WWE legend had fallen out with the company. 

Stone Cold today though moved to deny the rumors. Speaking on his podcast, Austin denied that he was ever due to appear at Levi’s Stadium.

"All kinds of things being said about myself and WWE over the fact that I no showed WrestleMania. Man, completely false. There's no heat." - Stone Cold on post 'Mania rumors.

There was never any part of any kind of creative discussions of me participating in WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara," continued Austin. "So there was no booking, there was no ideas, I didn't turn down anything. So I just simply wasn't there."

The former Superstar went on to pour cold water on reports that he had fallen out with Vince McMahon too, supposedly over the WWE's decision not to put his podcast on the Network.

Extreme Rules

Across to in-ring action and we now know who will take on Seth Rollins for a shot at the title at Extreme Rules.

After defeating Roman Reigns and Ryback on last night’s RAW, Randy Orton will attempt to win the Heavyweight Title on April 26th.

AJ Lee exit

Finally, both Nikki and Brie Bella have spoken on AJ Lee’s surprise retirement.

The twins said Lee would be a huge loss to WWE but backed other Divas to step up in her absence. Their comments come after Lee followed in her husband, CM Punk's, footsteps by deciding to walk away from the business.
