Steve Austin News Haul - Feb. 22, 2011

Some news reports are a few weeks old, but most are fairly recent.

Hangar 14 News

Steve Austin recently completed filming on Hangar 14, which features former UFC talent Keith Jardine in a supporting role. The movie centers on Los Angeles Police Department Swat Team members fighting two rival gangs in a three-way affair while trapped inside an abandoned hanger with nothing but blanks in their guns.

A Rock and Austin Rivalry Coming Soon?

Sources inside WWE hinted on Friday that tentative plans have been drawn up for The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin to appear together in the ring at WrestleMania 27 in Atlanta. Despite having already headlined three WrestleMania's together, the WWE Universe has been buzzing about a potential Rock and Austin confrontation given that both men have returned to the company in the past thirty days.

As it stands, however, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin will not have a phsyical altercation. Instead, ideas are being toyed with that involve both men somehow "laying the smack down" on WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

Last Monday, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson returned to WWE programming on Monday Night Raw for the first time in seven years.

Only three weeks earlier, Stone Cold Steve Austin was announced as the new host of WWE Tough Enough, which premieres April 4th, the night after WrestleMania 27.

On Tuesday, Stone Cold Steve Austin tweeted: “it was great to see The Rock back on RAW tonight…helluva promo from an electrifying cat. great stuff heading into Mania.”

Steve Austin will all but certainly be on hand for WrestleMania 27 in Atlanta, Georgia if for no other reason that to promote the following night's premiere of WWE Tough Enough. And we already know that The Rock will be in Atlanta serving as the official host of WrestleMania 27. So while there are facts rather than rumors dictating the latest speculation that Austin and The Rock will be paired for an in-ring segment at WrestleMania, it still isn't clear exactly how the segment will unfold and what it will involve.

One thing is for certain, however. An electrifying and unforgettable WrestleMania moment is likely in the works.

Please weigh in with a thought or comment below regarding a possible friendly reunion between Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock.

JR Blog's on Austin Hosting "Tough Enough"

On Steve Austin Hosting Tough Enough: "Steve Austin is very excited about hosting the new season of Tough Enough. It will be interesting to see how much star power and expertise is put in place when the training staff is announced. My instincts say that Austin will have a strong team to help him with the trainees. This will be a great opportunity for Stone Cold to be Stone Cold and to re-engage his many fans on a weekly TV series of which I have great expectations for and will be watching and DVR'ing every week. I do not know the status of Tough Enough airing outside the USA for those that are asking."
