Former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently discussed Stone Cold Steve Austin’s absence from WrestleMania 40. Speculated to appear in the match between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns, Austin was a no-show, with The Undertaker making a surprise return instead.

Russo, speaking on Wrestling’s Legion of RAW, suggested that Austin declined the opportunity as he didn’t want to be just one of many. According to Russo, Austin is fiercely protective of his character and wouldn’t want to dilute his impact by being part of a larger group. Despite the initial plan supposedly involving a confrontation between The Rock and Austin, the latter’s absence shifted the focus to The Rock and The Undertaker.

Fans were eagerly anticipating a clash between Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, given their storied history in the ring. The build-up to WrestleMania hinted at Austin’s involvement, especially during a segment on WWE RAW where The Rock targeted Cody Rhodes. However, plans took a turn, leading to The Undertaker stepping in instead of Austin.

Russo went on to imply that Tony Khan, the head of AEW, shows little concern for AEW’s ratings. This perspective adds an intriguing layer to the ongoing dynamics in professional wrestling.
