WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin had finally addressed rumors regarding the reason he did not attend WrestleMania 33 week on his podcast.
Austin noted that he recently sold his ranch in Texas, and the timing of the sale and everything that came with it conflicted with WrestleMania weekend. “I had a lot of irons in the fire,” Austin said.
WWE did reach out and invite him to attend the big event, but Austin said he appreciated the offer and informed the person who extended it that he was too busy with other obligations.
“I will always be a part of the WWE,” said Austin. “The WWE will always be a part of my life. Man, I’m in this thing for the rest of my life. That’s the relationship I have with the WWE. So there’s never been no heat, no this, no that, no whatever. I’m at a great place with those guys and I’m thankful for everything they’ve done for me, I’m sure they are thankful for the things I did for them. Again, I’m a WWE member for life.”
