What Stone Cold Steve Austin told Theory to do at WrestleMania 38 during their angle

Stone Cold returns to the ring at WrestleMania 38 after a 19-year absence. He faced Kevin Owens on Night 1 of WrestleMania. But Steve Austin didn’t finish. He was a main part of WrestleMania Night Two, Vince McMahon, Theory, and the gorgeous Pat McAfee.

Shortly after Vince beat McAfee in a match, Steve Austin took to the ring to ruin McMahon’s celebration with his Patronus Theory. He then went on to stun Vince McMahon and the current US champion. Theory was praised for selling Stone Cold Stunner so well.

Speaking on After the bell, Theory revealed what Stone Cold told him backstage at WrestleMania right before their segment. He detailed how excited he was about working with Austin and said that The Rattlesnake gave him the exact instructions:

“I remember him saying to me when I was standing in the corner and he was arguing with Mr. McMahon. He was like, ‘I’m going to look at you, and when I look at you, start throwing. Come on. with me and start. throw some punches.'”

The US champion revealed that Austin told him to wait for the signal before attacking him while he argued with McMahon. Austin told him to only come to him after he looked at him.

He added that he was ‘ready to go’ when Austin gave him a look. The youngest US champion admits he feels great to be in the ring with greats like McMahon and Steve Austin at the same time:

“As soon as he looked at me, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s right.’ It was fun. It was great just enjoying those moments. You were standing there, and you were in the ring with Mr. McMahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania. I was just like, ‘wow.’ Sometimes it’s speechless. I don’t even have words for that.”

The segment was loved by fans and critics alike, and Theory was praised for his work at WrestleMania 38.
