WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. His contributions to the world of professional wrestling can never be understated. It seems Jim Ross commented on Steve Austin’s possible WWE return as well.

As reported earlier, WWE is discussing WrestleMania 38 match for Steve Austin and the company is already working under the assumption that Steve Austin vs Kevin Owens is done deal.

While speaking on Ask JR Live, Jim Ross addressed the possibility of Steve Austin returning to WWE. Ross seemingly hinted that fans who want to see Austin return are naive as it is just not simple as they think it can be.

“Steve still has a great passion for the business. I don’t think he wants to reignite his wrestling career. I don’t know that the success that AEW has had with a guy that’s older than him and another legend in Sting has influenced that creative or that idea, I don’t know. I talk to Steve about once a month, and more often than not, we don’t even talk about wrestling. He doesn’t even watch a lot of wrestling, and I’ve probably watched too much. So we don’t even go there, it’s a football conversation or it’s home improvement stuff, food, the grill, things like that. And we’re just old friends and there are a million things we can talk about without talking about pro wrestling.


It’s an interesting concept, he’ll sell a lot of tickets if he’s booked, but [WWE is] burning daylight on getting closer and closer to their d-day. One would assume if Steve is going to do something, that would be finalized sooner than later. I just don’t know if it’s going to happen or not, someone goes online and it hits the timeline and all of a sudden, it’s fact. It proves our society is very naive, it’s not that simple. If he wants to do it, I hope he does and I think it would be great because there’s a whole generation of fans that haven’t seen him in his full presentation inside the ring, and I think that would be entertaining for anybody.”

WWE is currently waiting for Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins’ tag team program to end before they get started on Owens and Austin’s feud. We will have to wait and see when WWE will start booking Owens and Austin for WrestleMania 38.
