Steve Austin headlined night one of WrestleMania 38 in a no holds barred match against Kevin Owens. Many doubted Austin’s ability to deal with the physicality of a wrestling match, but fans loved seeing Stone Cold perform one more time. Austin recently said he is feeling no ill effects from the match and is looking forward to being a part of next year’s WrestleMania.
The Texas Rattlesnake said he was sure he’d never main event another WrestleMania. Austin is feeling good about how things went. Steve said he is 100% healthy after doing segments on both nights of WrestleMania.
Austin appeared on the Brewbound podcast recently to discuss his relationship with El Segundo Brewing, makers of his Broken Skull line of beers. Stone Cold was asked if he plans to take part in WrestleMania 39. Austin replied that if Vince McMahon wants him there, he wouldn’t miss it.
“For me to participate at WrestleMania 38, if you had told me, ‘You’re going to be part of WrestleMania 38,’ not only that, ‘you’re going to main event night one,’ I would have said that you’re full of sh*t and you’re crazy. There I was, in Dallas, Texas, headlining the event on day one.
Never say never, but I would imagine, within the scope of that show, it’s going to be a big show in a big time city. It will be a two-night event again. I’m sure I’m done wrestling, per se, but as part of WWE, I can’t imagine that I won’t be there in some capacity. I’m not booking myself on the show, because I didn’t book myself on 38, that’s a Vince (McMahon) thing, and I have a great relationship with him. If I get the call, I’ll be there.”
Steve Austin might not plan to wrestle again, but he is enthusiastic about the chance to take part in WrestleMania 39. That show will take place in Inglewood, California at SoFi Stadium on April 1 and 2, 2023. Fans can bet on Vince McMahon making the call. Time will tell what kind of role Austin has at the event.
