WWE has a lot of plans that they need to get underway as they prepare for the grandest stage of them all. April 1st and 2nd will be here before we know it, and a lot could happen in that time frame. With the Royal Rumble approaching tonight, fans are anticipating the unexpected, even Steve Austin’s return to the company.
Steve Austin shocked the pro wrestling world when he returned to the ring at WrestleMania 38. Now fans are waiting to hear his glass break once again on the road to the next show of shows.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE offered Steve Austin a ton of money for a potential match. They could certainly use him for a marquee match situation, but it was also reported that WWE hasn’t heard back from Steve Austin about having another match.
Fightful has been asking around about both The Rock and Steve Austin, and the Royal Rumble. Talent that we’ve spoken to — to the tune of over a dozen — haven’t been told anything, but said that it’s well known that WWE wants of them. One even noted that the money increase between the pitches to Austin for Brock Lesnar in the fall, and Reigns in January was “significant” and obvious that WWE wanted him for something. The word that we got back was that WWE hadn’t heard back from Austin about that match.
We’ll have to see if WWE can lock Steve Austin down for another match. It sounds like they have big plans for him if he agrees to work another match. If Stone Cold does wrestle again for WWE, it won’t come cheap.
