Stone Cold Steve Austin is widely recognized as one of the most influential and greatest professional wrestlers of all time. During the Attitude Era, a period of industry boom in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he was responsible for the development and success of WWE. A major update on the possibility of Stone Cold returning to WWE has now emerged after a very successful WrestleMania outing.
Steve Austin might just wrestle for WWE again. Austin returned to the ring on the first night of WrestleMania 38 in April 2022. It was Austin’s first official match since 2003 when he defeated Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred match. Austin then appeared on the second night of WrestleMania 38, giving Stone Cold Stunners to Austin Theory, Pat McAfee, and Vince McMahon.
In an update on Austin’s status, WrestleVotes told GiveMeSport that the possibility of not dead regarding one more match for the Texas Rattlesnake.
“I know that he had a wonderful time doing it last year in Dallas. He was happy, he was elated.”
“Let’s say that the performance of the match, everything, went so well and people loved it so much. So I know he was thrilled post-WrestleMania. And I’d say he was open to doing it again.”
To be clear, there is no actual confirmation that Austin will wrestle again, according to the report. It’s only that WWE seems to believe he could be open to the idea. Given that he was so against the idea of a return match until WrestleMania 38, this is truly a significant development.
Steve Austin doesn’t appear to have ruled out another match, which is definitely noteworthy. Let’s wait and see what he decides; we’ll keep you updated. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
