Backstage News on Whether Steve Austin or The Rock Will Appear at WrestleMania
— As of this time, the feeling is that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will not be part of WrestleMania 33 weekend. On Twitter, someone asked Dave Meltzer about this and he responded with: “For those asking, no Austin this weekend as best I can tell.” [ UPDATE: Several readers have sent word that Austin confirmed publicly that he will be watching the show from home.]
— Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been laying low with his public statements on WrestleMania, which could be a way to keep any sort of appearance on the show as a surprise. Despite a very busy schedule, Johnson seems to always find time to pop up at WrestleMania and this year may not be any different.
