Steve AustinAccording to sources within WWE, the buzz coming from the locker room last night was that Steve Austin was not at Raw 1,000 because he is currently filming "Grown Ups 2" starring Adam Sandler.

Sources added, however, that Austin is currently upset with WWE due to the lack of promotion the company has given to his new show "Redneck Island." The feeling is that WWE went out of its way to promote Shawn Michaels' reality show when it debuted, but up to this point has done little to nothing at all to promote Austin's show.

In return, it's being said Austin put little effort into adjusting his shooting schedule so that he could make an appearance at Raw 1,000.
