- Steve Austin has no contractual ties to WWE right now. That means he can’t use the Stone Cold name, which WWE owns, although he has the rights to the Steve Austin name, which is now his legal name, as part of an agreement with WWE.

- Rick Rude’s son was at the most recent WWE tryouts at the Performance Center in Orlando. He has no experience in wrestling.

- While it’s been reported that WWE recently released Richie Steamboat after Chris Hero mentioned it in an interview, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that he is still under contract to WWE and there’s on estimate on when he will return from back surgery he had about a year ago.

    WWE could totally do a buddy cop movie with Rock and Austin. It would be hilarious as well as action-packed, I’m sure. This should happen!

    The WWE owns the “Stone Cold” Steve Austin name.. so he can’t use it? Do you know how bad it would make them look if they actually did anything about him using it? If it weren’t for Austin, we would all be talking about WCW right now, not WWE…

    Good luck to Rick Rude’s son.
