Steve Austin recently appeared at Wizard World in Los Angeles to promote his upcoming film The Condemned. During Tuesday’s ECW/SmackDown tapings the trailer for the movie was shown; however the crowd gave little reaction to Austin. The opposite should be the case when he is announced on RAW that he will be the special referee for the Lashley vs. Umaga match at WrestleMania.
Stone Cold Steve Austin is a huge, larger than life character. However, this is not 1999 or 2001, and he doesn't have the pull or weight that He once had. I believe that this guy can go a long way, but by hanging onto the coat tails of the wwe, he's not going to be labeled as serious.
His new movie the Condemned is currently being promoted. The trailer can be seen below:
Apparently, the Comic Book geeks aren't watching professional wrestling these days. Further proving that maybe Hulk Hogan is still a bigger and badder commodity than even Stone Cold Steve Austin.
