article imageVinnie Jones Sets Up Feud With Stone Cold Steve Austin

By Sheriff Kimbo     Feb 19, 2007 in Entertainment
Last night, at WWE pay-per-view 'No Way Out', British actor and former professional footballer Vinnie Jones set up an angle on WWE TV with professional wrestling legend, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
The two are both starring in the latest installment from WWE films, entitled, 'The Condemned'. Last night, Jones cut a promo at ringside during the show in an interview with Michael Cole, and said that he was the star of the movie. He also added that he could “kick Stone Cold’s arse,” hence setting up a future confrontation between the two. While nothing will be announced until tonights episode of 'Raw' at the absolute earliest, I guess there is always the possibility that this could happen at Wrestlemania 23, although it could just be part of the promotion on Raw when Stone Cold returns to WWE TV, due to happen soon.
Jones has appeared in the WWE in the past, making an appearance during the UK only ‘Capital Carnage’ PPV back in 1998 during promotion for the ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ movie that he was starring in at the time. On that occasion, Jones was involved in an angle with The Big Bossman, being “red carded” and kicked out. That show ended with Jones returning to drink beer with Austin and referee Earl Hebner.
For US-based fans, and pretty much any fan that is not based in the UK, I guess this is no big deal. But if you are a UK-based fan it is quite surreal, especially for those of us that remember Jones as a (not particularly good) footballer, playing for Chelsea, Leeds United and most memorably, Wimbledon. Part of their 1988 FA Cup winning side, Jones epitomised the 'Crazy Gang' of that era.
For someone like me in particular, it is actually a big deal. Not only am I mildly obsessed with football in this country, but I am also a total self-confessed mark for Stone Cold Steve Austin, so any angle involving him automatically gets my attention, especially with him spending less and less time on WWE programming these days. Quite frankly, any opportunity to see the man on TV right now is genuinely a privelige, in my humble opinion.
