– Steve Austin will make a return appearance at the Cyber Sunday PPV in October, reports the U.K. Sun. The return would likely follow the same storyline Ric Flair had leading to his epic retirement at WrestleMania 24. Austin wouldn’t return to the ring unless he could be the top performer at WrestleMania 25 in Houston, so it remains to be seen whether he’ll have a one-time-only match or simply be the “main event” inductee at the Hall of Fame.
– Kofi Kingston says he grew up wanting to be like the martial arts-style wrestlers, such as Ricky Steamboat. He said that’s translated into talking to Ricky backstage for advice. “I absolutely talk to Ricky Steamboat in the back,” Kingston told Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald. “There are lots of people in the back who were wrestlers back in the day, and you’d be a fool not to pick their brains. They’ve forgotten more stuff than I’ll ever know. I always try to go and pick everybody’s brain.”
