Diamond Dallas Page was one of the mainstays of Ted Turner’s WCW. DDP was involved in many high-profile matches in his career as well. Responding to rumors on Steve Austin’s plausible return to the ring, a close friend of Austin, DDP, said he would be surprised to see the Texas Rattlesnake in tights again.
On the latest episode of the DDP Snake Pit Podcast, DDP gave his take on the rumors surrounding Austin’s return to the ring. The 65-year-old believes Austin, who is 57, has done it all and does not need to wrestle again.
“I would be totally surprised,” DDP admitted. “Just because I know him, you know? It’s not like he’s not done it all. You know, he had eight world titles, all different belts. The guy did everything you could ever dream of doing. He’s lived the dream on so many different levels. He’s a spokesperson for Tide. He does so many things and plus he’s got his shows going, you know what I mean?
“Steve don’t need it. Could he go out there and give it a go? I’m sure if Vince paid him enough money he could go out and hit a stunner or two but he ain’t gonna go in there and do no match. Not that I see and I could be wrong, you know, but I would not want to see him do it again because he’s no kid anymore, you know? None of us are.”
It was earlier reported that Steve Austin would be wrestling Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 38 in Arlington, Texas. However, Austin and Owens are instead scheduled for an interview segment on KO Show on the first night of WrestleMania.
