According to one WWE legend, Stone Cold Steve Austin should not come back to give it another go and wrestle at WrestleMania 39.
According to Mick Foley, Stone Cold Steve Austin has already had a remarkable swan song and any further in-ring action could tarnish the legacy of his epic appearance at WrestleMania 39.
On the latest edition of his podcast, Foley is Pod, Foley was asked if he’d like to see Austin return for another match at WrestleMania 39 and he had a definitive answer.
“No. He had the swan song and it was a tremendous swan song.
“It was my favorite match of the night just because Steve went and did so much more than anybody thought he would. Then Kevin Owens deserves some type of award. I don’t know if the Nobel Peace Prize went to Kevin Owens last year.
“I could argue he should have won it just for single-handedly carrying that angle. Steve wasn’t even on TV. I think he did one promo by remote.
“Owens calling the Texas landscape flat and uninspired is just a thing of beauty. Then the next night trying to create an excuse for his loss by saying not only was he lifting weights, he was lifting a lot of weights.
“Man, there’s a lot you can learn from watching how that program was done, but the main ingredient is that your guy coming back has to be able to deliver on a level or exceed the level that is expected.
“Steve did such a fantastic job. Of course, people would love to see him and The Rock, but not as much as they’d love to see Rock and Roman, in my opinion.”
