Steve Austin to moderate contract signing on WWE Raw at MSG


Steve Austin will be moderating a contract signing when he appears on Raw at Madison Square Garden next week.

WWE has announced that Austin will be the moderator for Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman's contract signing on next Monday's Raw. Rollins is defending his Universal Championship against Strowman at Clash of Champions on September 15.

The contract signing was originally announced for tonight's Raw, but the segment led to Rollins and Strowman being interrupted by AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson. Rollins & Strowman defeated Gallows & Anderson but were laid out by Styles, Gallows, Anderson, Dolph Ziggler, and Robert Roode in a post-match angle.

Rollins & Strowman are also defending their Raw Tag Team titles against Ziggler & Roode at Clash of Champions.

Austin sent out a tweet setting up next Monday's contract signing: "I got an idea. Next week on #Raw, let’s complete this Championship Contract Signing, only this time it’ll be moderated by good ol’ #StoneCold @steveaustinBSR. And that’s the bottom line cause I said so. #WWEMSG"

After the contract signing was officially confirmed for next week, Strowman confronted Rollins backstage and was paranoid about how Austin praised Rollins after SummerSlam. Strowman said that Austin will get these hands if he tries to get in Strowman's face.

Next week's Raw and SmackDown are both taking place at Madison Square Garden. They're the go-home shows for Clash of Champions.
