Stone Cold Steve Austin has revealed he will be at WrestleMania XXX in some capacity.

The interesting part about the announcement was that WWE didn’t spill the beans on his appearance. Austin let it slip when TMZ caught him at the New Orleans airport. WWE then saw the leak and announced this appearance shortly after.

It appeared WWE wanted to keep Austin’s appearance at WrestleMania XXX a secret. Still, I have no idea why or what Austin will do at the event. He’s obviously not wrestling and Hulk Hogan has secured the hosting job. Austin himself has kept quiet on his role at WrestleMania XXX and is telling people just to watch the show to find out.

Many fans are hoping he’ll have a segment with CM Punk in some capacity. Austin, after all, made a prediction that Punk will be at WrestleMania XXX. It seems interesting that Austin would say that just the day before he flies down to New Orleans. Maybe Austin knows something we don’t know and Punk will secretly go to WrestleMania XXX as well. It’s a possibility, but it could be just wishful thinking.

Other than a special segment with Punk, there is no other reasons where Austin can fit on the show. He doesn’t have any strong connection with any of the Hall of Fame inductees this year. Not to mention he hasn’t been announced as a special guest referee on any of the matches this year either. I highly doubt Austin would come all the way to be in the Battle Royal as WWE would have announced that ages ago.

Hopefully Austin does something meaningful at WrestleMania XXX. It would be disappointing if he’s just there to talk about the WWE Network and then leaves.
