It looks like WWE has big plans for Kevin Steen. In addition to holding off his announcement so they could tie it in with the WWE Network launch in Canada, they told Dean Ambrose not to do Steen’s running cannonball into the corner any more. They want to move to seem fresh when he’s brought up to the main roster. Steen will start in Orlando on August 25th.
On Steve Austin’s podcast Steen told Austin how he met Austin back in 2005 at an airport and credited Austin for the advice he gave Steen. Steen said that Austin encouraged him to run his mouth if he wanted to get noticed and his verbal skills will help him get noticed no matter how good he is in the ring.
