Stone Cold Steve Austin took serious bump at WrestleMania 38 despite neck issues

Stone Cold Steve Austin came out of retirement to feature at the highly anticipated WrestleMania 38 on Saturday night, and boy did he deliver, in more ways than one. 

The six-time WWE champion returned to the ring after 19 years to challenge Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred match in Arlington, Texas, his hometown. 

Austin was originally a guest on the KO Show until he was challenged by the host to a full on match. Something the fans in attendance and the millions watching at home absolutely loved.

The atmosphere was electric as Stone Cold had the entire backing of the crowd in his hometown. 

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing, as The Texas Rattlesnake received a suplex on the exposed concrete outside of the ring. 

The 57-year old, who had previous neck and back issues, was flung backwards, but took the bump like the champion he is. 

You can watch the bump in the GIF posted by WWE below.

Although the official Twitter account said no words, they summed it up pretty perfectly by just posting 12 shocked emoji faces.

It wasn’t just WWE that were shocked, the entire Universe couldn’t believe the bump they had just witnessed.

After brawling outside of the ring and in the crowd before making their way back into the ring, Owens then hit the Stunner; a move made famous by Stone Cold himself.

Owens then grabbed a chair and went to hit Austin, but missed the target; the chair ricocheting off the ropes and hitting him straight back in the face. 

It was a stroke of luck Stone Cold required, as the former WWE champion went on to hit Owens with his trademark Stunner for the win.

Stone Cold was back inside a WWE ring and back competing in a proper match. What a beautiful sight it was!
