Stone Cold Steve Austin is a man who knows his stuff and is never shy about giving his opinion on a subject no matter the platform he's on.
In the past 24 hours, The Texas Rattlesnake has spoken about how he thinks pairing Roman Reigns with a manager like Paul Heyman would be a terrible idea, while also revealing that he truly thought AJ Styles carried Reigns through the entirety of their short-lived feud for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship earlier this year.
Speaking of the WWE Championship, Austin gave his opinion of who should be holding the belt and stated that he believed Kevin Owens deserves the honour.

Appearing in an in-depth interview with Sports Illustrated, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed his admiration for the Canadian superstar.
According to Austin, Owens is incredibly talented and he has no idea why the WWE haven't put him in the main event picture yet.
"I think they've got to give Kevin Owens a run with the belt. He's a veteran and he's really clicking on the mic, and the kid is super talented," Austin said to Justin Barrasso.
"Give him a f------ run. I don't know why you wouldn't give the guy the opportunity, he's just too good."
Austin has a point, for months now Kevin Owens has been one of the best all-around superstars on the entire roster.
He can wrestle as well as anybody else in the WWE, better than most to be honest, and is excellent on the microphone. Right now, he is arguably the best heel on the WWE roster.
Unfortunately, Vince McMahon and co won't be giving Owens the ball and letting him run with it anytime soon. The former Ring of Honor and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla champion is firmly stuck in the mid-card for the time being, battling away for the Intercontinental Championship.
Owens is in action this weekend at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view as he looks to get his hands on the briefcase that could land him a shot at the WWE title. The current favourite for the honor, however, is former Shield member Dean Ambrose, with a potential Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins storyline in the pipeline for the near future.
