Steve Austin at WrestleMania? 

steve austinWWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin noted on his podcast – The Steve Austin Show – that he is making plans to fly into New Orleans for WrestleMania weekend. He stated that he would like to attend the annual WWE Hall of Fame ceremony as he has in past years. 

A while back we reported that WWE wanted to bring in Austin for WrestleMania, as they wanted to have four major wrestling icons present at the 30th annual PPV event – the other three being Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker and the Ultimate Warrior, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame the night prior. However, the most recent reports indicate that Stone Cold is only interested in making a return on-screen if there is a "very good reason", and as of right now there appears to be no creative plans in place to feature Austin at WrestleMania XXX. 

WWE Network Updates

The 2014 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view is now available on the WWE Network. Several episodes of Legends of Wrestling and various replays of Raw and Smackdown have also been added.

Meanwhile, we still have no update on when WWE plans to make modern episodes of Raw and Smackdown available, as the WWE Network is only caught up through Batista's return on January 19th.
