#2 Got it wrong: The Rattlesnake Skypes onto the show

It was good to see Austin, though his role could have been filled by anyone.

Stone Cold Steve Austin has had a career that has led many fans to rightly argue that the Texas Rattlesnake is the greatest Superstar of all time. So when the company announced that Austin was going to be a part of the show, I, like so many others, was excited.

And though it was great to see the former WWF World Champion back on the red brand, fans couldn't help but be disappointed with the appearance of the Rattlesnake. Though it had been announced before the show that Austin would be appearing via Skype, it still didn't make seeing Austin on the Titantron instead of the ring any easier.

Watching Austin speak on this past Sunday's Universal title match between Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar, I couldn't help but think about The Rock in 2011, as his appearances via Skype became the butt of plenty of jokes. Yes, it was great to see the Rattlesnake on the show, but the Attitude Era star seemed to be wasted in a role which could have been better delivered in the ring by somebody else.
