In the show-closing angle of last night's Raw, Kevin Owens called out "Stone Cold" Steve Austin for a confrontation at WrestleMania 38.
Owens & Seth Rollins came up short in a Raw Tag Team Championship match last night, with RK-Bro defeating Alpha Academy and Rollins & Owens to win the titles. But Owens was interviewed later in the show and said he still had an idea for how he could get on WrestleMania.
Owens said he wants to have the biggest, most stupendous KO Show at WrestleMania. Owens said he knew the guest had to be some lowlife from Texas. He brought up JBL, Booker T, and Shawn Michaels as potential guests, but Owens explained why none of them would work.
Owens said he had the perfect guest in mind -- someone who embodies the state of Texas like no one else. Someone who is a broken down shell of himself living in past glory.
After saying that nothing would make him happier than beating the hell out of this guy in his home state and giving him a stunner the world would talk about for years, Owens officially challenged Austin to show up at the KO Show on night one of WrestleMania 38.
Austin will respond to Owens' challenge at noon Eastern time today.
