Stone Cold Steve Austin, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, and The OC In-Ring Segment 

Stone Cold will be moderating the Seth Rollins/Braun Strowman contract signing for their upcoming WWE Universal Championship Match at WWE Clash Of Champions. Somebody told Austin that it has been more than twenty years since he has been to the Garden. Before we take care of this contract signing, Austin wants to go down memory road. He will never forget his match with Bret Hart at Survivor Series 1996. He remembers when WWE was worried about his neck and Vince serenaded him. Austin dropped Vince with The Stunner for the first time at MSG. How about The Highway To Hell at SummerSlam 1998? He remembers kicking Taker’s big ass. Then out of nowhere he got knocked out. Earl Hebner asked him if he was okay. Austin wanted to know where he was. Hebner said, son you at The Garden. WWE needed someone to mediate this contract signing.

That’s why he flew from the west coast to the east coast. Austin introduces Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins. Austin refuses to shake Strowman’s hand. Rollins puts over Austin.

Rollins is not stabbing anyone in the back. He’s the best wrestler in the world and he will still be the best on the planet after Clash of Champions. Rollins signs the contract. Strowman has the utmost respect for Austin, but a rattlesnake is still a rattlesnake. He likes being Tag Team Champ, but he will love being Universal Champ. To qoute one of the goats, Strowman is going to open a can of whoop ass and Rollins will get these hands.

The what chants are getting under Styles skin. That’s why no one wants to go to New York. The Raw Tag Team Champions didn’t have the gaul to defend their titles against The Good Brothers.

Someone should tell Styles that there’s no more automatic title rematches. Styles has 18,000 people calling him an asshole. Styles says that Austin has turned into an asshole in his old age. Styles calls Austin an old fart. Strowman looks at the title belt and he gets a title match? Austin starts rearranging the furniture.
