Stone Cold Steve Austin Hilariously Asks For An Empty Arena To Give Him A 'Hell Yeah'
| Last updated
WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin returned to Monday Night Raw last night and hilariously asked for an empty arena to give him a 'hell yeah'.
Austin made an appearance to commemorate '3:16 Day' and would normally enter to a huge pop from the crowd.
However, WWE have moved all shows for the foreseeable future to their Performance Center in Orlando, Florida with only important personnel in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It still didn't stop 'The Texas Rattlesnake' from asking the non-existent crowd to 'Gimme a hell yeah'.

Only one man reacted to Austin and it was commentator Byron Saxton who gave a huge 'Hell yeah'!
A bewildered 'Bionic Redneck' looked on and uttered his iconic 'What?' catchphrase.
Fans have reacted to the clip and they think it could be some of the best television in years.
I hate to say it, but this is peak WWE
Hell, peak wrestling

Saxton's involvement saw himself on the receiving end of a 'Stone Cold Stunner' to cap off one of WWE's most bizarre segments ever.
It had been announced earlier on Monday that WWE's huge WrestleMania event would be relocating to the Performance Center.
WrestleMania was originally set to take place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
But the company confirmed in their statement that the show has been moved.
"In coordination with local partners and government officials, WrestleMania and all related events in Tampa Bay will not take place," WWE said.
"However, WrestleMania will still stream live on Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view.
"Only essential personnel will be on the closed set at WWE's training facility in Orlando, Florida to produce WrestleMania."
Multiple matches have already been confirmed for 'The Showcase of the Immortals' including Drew McIntyre challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship.
The SmackDown brand's main event will see Goldberg defend the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns.
