This year’s WWE WrestleMania was not lacking in noteworthy events, and Brian Pillman Jr., the late Brian Pillman’s son, was present for two significant ones.
Pillman Jr. remarked on two significant WWE events he witnessed at WrestleMania 38 of this year while participating in a podcast.
Pillman Jr. reported that he had been in Dallas for it. He witnessed Steve Austin’s triumph. That was cool, and He also got to see Cody’s special moment. So, you know, in wrestling, they are referred to as such. They don’t always refer to them as matches; they are known as moments.
Cody Rhodes Moment
Cody Rhodes made his comeback to the WWE on night one of WrestleMania 38 after nearly six years away. The last time he appeared on WWE television, he went by the name Stardust and wore a full body suit and face paint like his brother Dustin Rhodes, who went by the ring name Goldust.
In a spectacular comeback, Rhodes appeared as Seth Rollins’ unidentified opponent after Rollins had been looking for a bout at WrestleMania for weeks before the WWE equivalent of the Super Bowl. The last time Rhodes appeared on an AEW program was when he lost the TNT Championship to Sammy Guevara in a ladder match. As a result, the Dallas, Texas, audience gave him an enthusiastic reception.
In addition to departing AEW, which he co-founded with Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, Rhodes also resigned from his role as an EVP.
Later that evening, another significant WrestleMania 38 incident occurred when Stone Cold Steve Austin made a special appearance on the Kevin Owens Show in what eventually developed into a contest between the two. When this match took place, Austin would wrestle for the first time since The Rock defeated him at WrestleMania 19 in 2003.
The main event of night one featured a No Holds Barred match between Austin and Owens that took place across the AT&T Stadium. Austin suffered blows throughout the contest, including a suplex onto the arena’s concrete floor.
After losing his previous match at WrestleMania, the “Texas Rattlesnake” was relieved to finally come out on top after nailing Owens with a stunning victory move.
