“Stone Cold” In the main event of WrestleMania 38 Night One this past April, Steve Austin made a surprise in-ring return, defeating Kevin Owens in an impromptu No Holds Barred match in his first match since WrestleMania XIX in 2003.
When asked if he’d wrestle again at WrestleMania 39 next April, “The Texas Rattlesnake” didn’t say no — “…Never say ‘never,’ but I would really imagine that within the scope of that show, that’s going to be a big show in a big-time city and it’ll be a two-night event again, so, I’m not.
I’m sure I’m done wrestling, but as a WWE employee, I can’t imagine not being involved in some way, and 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, so if the call comes, I’ll be there.”
Despite the fact that Vince McMahon is no longer involved with WWE, Austin may be preparing for another WrestleMania match. WrestleVotes reported earlier this month via GiveMeSport that Austin was open to the possibility, saying, “I know he had a great time doing it in Dallas last year. He was overjoyed, ecstatic. Let’s say the performance of the match, everything went so well and people loved it so much, so I’m sure he was overjoyed after WrestleMania. And I’d say he was willing to do it again.”
Austin, who has always kept in shape even after retiring from wrestling, sparked interest this weekend when he posted a quick video of his morning cardio to his Instagram story.
