Kevin Owens made this challenge to Austin on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. Owens has been running down Texas for weeks, leading to speculation that an actual match from Austin was on the horizon. While Austin doesn’t confirm or deny a match in this promo, he’s certainly going to get physical in some capacity.
The Austin appearance on the KO Show is scheduled for night one of WrestleMania on April 2.
