WWE announced during last night's edition of Monday Night Raw that Steve Austin will be hosting his podcast with Paige as his guest next week.
Although for many having a WWE Diva on as the interviewee is the right decision at this time given the rise of the NXT female wrestlers of late, the news has not pleased every follower of WWE.
One particular member of the WWE Universe took to Twitter to express his disappointment at the booking, as E Wrestling News first reported.

The Texas Rattlesnake was clearly, and understandably, angered by this remark, as he responded to the Tweet with his own reply.
The news of Paige being invited onto the show has sparked rumours that the original intended guest was Hulk Hogan but, due to his departure from the company amidst a racism row, he had to be replaced.
It is disappointing to learn that certain followers of WWE feel Paige is yet to prove herself as worthy of or interesting enough to be considered as a guest for an interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Since making her debut in WWE she has become one of the most-popular Divas on the main roster. Paige has succeeded in many ways as achieving what many other female WWE superstars could not, not least in the way she was able to make the WrestleMania card in her first year of being at the top level.
As What Culture have reported however, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer explained that Hulk Hogan was originally planned to be the guest on the WWE Network podcast after Raw next Monday night.
As Paige is, like Hogan was, a Tough Enough judge, it is understood that she could well have been chosen as the replacement in order to still promote WWE's reality TV show as intended.
Although Paige will no doubt have some highly interesting discussion topics and is often known for being one to speak her mind, it is a big change from what the podcast could have been like if Hogan were on it.
With the history Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin have, the chat would doubtlessly have made for incredible listening, but, as with many things of late, the decision to remove Hogan appears to have been the right one.
