Steve Austin has commented on his in-ring wrestling future.
At WWE WrestleMania 38, Stone Cold Steve Austin came out of retirement to defeat Kevin Owens in a match that was originally billed as a confrontation.
Ahead of WrestleMania 39, Austin stated that he had been in contact with WWE about a match at the event.
Speaking to WESH2, Austin once again reiterated that WWE approached him for another match at the Show of Shows. When asked about potentially doing another match, he said:
“They approached me about wrestling at WrestleMania 39. I thought, what I did with Kevin, that was a great sendoff because I started in Dallas, got a chance to end in Dallas.”
“The way we framed that match, too much wasn’t expected. I got approached to be part of 39, but the schedule of filming, I told WWE, ‘I don’t know what my life looks like until we get into production and knowing if I can train for WrestleMania 39.'”
“We finished this show about five to seven days before WrestleMania. There is no way, traveling all over God’s creation in an RV with a 35-pound dumbbell, a 45-pound sandbag, and some kettlebells, that I could have gotten in that kind of shape.”
“In the future, I’m not saying I will get back in the ring, but like I said at 38, if the stars align, anything could happen.”
Stone Cold Steve Austin has been filming for his reality show, “Stone Cold Takes on America,” which airs on Sunday, April 30, on A&E at 10PM ET.
It is currently unknown if or when Austin will return to WWE programming in any capacity.
