WrestleZone has learned exclusively that WWE writers have been informed to expect Stone Cold Steve Austin at this year's Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, but not at WrestleMania 28.
"If Stone Cold appears at WrestleMania, he certainly isn't expected to do anything in the ring," a key WWE insider told us, "and Austin has not been shy in telling (WWE Chairman) Vince (McMahon) that he has no plans of playing second fiddle to The Rock in any way."
Austin has told some friends he would love to attend the event but does not want to even be asked to get involved in a match, since The Rock and John Cena are in the main event. "Austin has a plan, and it doesn't include being a supporting character in a Rock starring role," WrestleZone was told.
