Steve Austin to appear on WWE Raw at Madison Square Garden


Steve Austin will be making an appearance when Raw returns to Madison Square Garden.

WWE announced today that Austin will be appearing on the September 9 episode of Raw at MSG. Austin was part of Raw Reunion last month, and he also made an appearance via Skype on the August 12 edition of the show.

During his Skype appearance, Austin reacted to Seth Rollins defeating Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Championship at SummerSlam. Austin also promoted the premiere of "Straight Up Steve Austin," which airs on the USA Network after Raw.

There will be seven episodes in this season of "Straight Up Steve Austin."

Austin tweeted about appearing at MSG: "I cannot believe it has been so long. Time flies by. The Garden is home to many of my favorite moments in my career. @BretHart in #survivorseries @undertaker in #summerslam #highwaytohell and stunning @VinceMcMahon for the very first time. Along with many others. Hell Yeah!"

SmackDown is also taking place at MSG on September 10. The Undertaker has been announced for that SmackDown episode.

The semifinals of King of the Ring will be held on Raw and SmackDown at MSG, with the finals then taking place at Clash of Champions on September 15.

This is the first time MSG has hosted WWE TV episodes since 2009. WWE's last televised event at the arena was their Live from MSG WWE Network special in October 2015.
