Video Package: The KO Show with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
The KO Show with special guest “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring to thunderous boos from the
crowd. Owens welcomes everyone to the WrestleMania Main Event
edition of The KO Show. Owens has said some pretty nasty things
about Texas, like if the United States were a human body, then Texas
would be the ass. Owens laughs, and the crowd gives him the “WHAT”
treatment. Owens thought about it and wants to apologize to every
single Texan… for telling the absolute, god’s honest truth about
their pathetic state. He’s been here for a few days, and it’s worse
than he remembered. People are eagerly anticipating him bringing out
his guest, but he’ll do it when he wants to. Owens isn’t done
telling how much he despises this guy.
What we have here is the absolute worst role model in the history of
WWE. Owens used to look up to him. Tonight, when he’s sitting in
that chair, he’s going to look at him and tell him how much he
sucks. Do you know what he’ll do about it? Not a damn thing! He’ll
sit in the chair and take it because he knows that if he doesn’t
show him the respect he deserves and commands, he’ll hit him with a
Stunner right in the middle of this ring and pour a beer right on
his stupid, bald head. Owens isn’t done…

UNREAL OVATION! Austin is definitely dressed for a fight with the
double knee braces on. Austin poses on both sides of the stage.

Austin goes to continue posing, but Owens demands the music be cut.
Owens says this is not Austin’s show. This is his show. Owens tells
the crowd not to encourage him. A booming “Austin” chant fires up!
Austin laughs until Owens gets in his face and tells him to take a
seat. Austin coldly looks into the hard camera before turning and
facing Owens. Owens tells him to calm down and take a seat. Owens
says he’s not here for a fight. He just wants to have a nice chat.
They both sit down. Owens sarcastically thanks him for being on “The
KO Show.” Austin asks if Owens really wants to have a conversation
after the trash talk. Owens sits there with his stupid haircut and
his stupid beady eyes… he looks like a jackass. Then he runs down
the great State of Texas. Austin says, “You stupid son-of-a-bitch!”
Owens looks confused and says he doesn’t know what is so great about
Texas. In the summertime, it’s hot as hell. The land is flat and
uninspiring, unlike Canada. As for the people, they wear stupid
hats, dumbass boots, and belt buckles. You can tell a Texan by how
dumb they look. Owens tells them to move somewhere else and make it
better. Owens feels for Austin. If he had to grow up here, he’d just
move to Mexico. It’s so close. Austin says in about 5-seconds he’ll
have 75,000 people calling him an “asshole.” The crowd chants,
“ASSHOLE” at Owens. Owens tells Austin not to be the stereotypical
rude, crass Texan. Austin should be more like Owens. Owens is a
sophisticated French Canadian. Owens is going to move past the
insults and be the bigger man.
Owens has to let him in on a little secret. Owens said he invited
him onto The KO Show to have a talk, but it was a lie. Owens has a
good reason. Owens didn’t need Austin to come out to get the entire
world talking about him and The KO Show. Owens tricked Austin. Owens
doesn’t want to talk. Even though he has a bad back right now, he’s
looking for a fight! Owens brought Austin out here to challenge him
