For several weeks now, the WWE has been promoting the 20th anniversary of Raw.

As of Monday night, they were promoting the event as "star-studded," which to me meant they were pulling out all of the stops to ensure some big names were in attendance.

As of last week, several stars were rumored for the event, including one "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Now, according to F4Wonline.com (via WrestlingInc.com), he may be confirmed for the event: "There was some doubt regarding Steve Austin's status for next week's RAW 20th Anniversary show but word now is that something happened over the weekend and Austin will most likely be appearing now. WWE is looking to go very big with next week's show."

Ultimately, I feel that this return needs to happen. Let's face it, the WWE and Austin haven't joined forces in quite some time, so it would be huge to see "The Texas Rattlesnake" back in a WWE ring. Granted, he wouldn't be wrestling, but it would still be nice to see the Hall of Famer cutting a promo and stunning some random star in the middle of the ring.

Personally, I feel he is the one man whose presence has been missing during these celebration—especially considering Austin was a huge factor in the Monday Night Wars of the 90s. In fact, for several years, he was the face of the "Attitude Era" and made Raw must-see TV.

Unfortunately, the last opportunity he had to make an appearance was at Raw 1000. Sadly, he was unable to appear because he was recovering from surgery. Hopefully, he will not have any scheduling conflicts and will indeed be in attendance.

In the end, we will have to wait and see if he will be there or not. Either way, the WWE will be doing their best to ensure that this show goes off without a hitch.
