WWE fans will have noticed that Stone Cold Steve Austin is appearing a lot more frequently on TV than he has done for many years.
While this can be put down to him needing to promote shows or WWE trying desperately to bump ratings, it’s fair to say that Austin’s willingness to appear on WWE TV seems to have increased.
Some have wondered whether this increase in appearances could be leading to a more full-time role back in the company, but Austin has said there are no plans for him to return full-time.
However, in an interview with TV Insider, he said he’s willing to help out as much as he can.
“Not everything is last minute. Some things are thought out way in advance. They call me up, and if I’m available and it sounds like a good idea, I’ll do it.
“I’ve been away for a long time. I always like to say I want the current superstars to have all the television time, but if I can go out there and give someone a rub. Or if I can get out there in front of a crowd that is still around when I was still active who want to see me again, that’s a cool feeling too.
“It’s just something that is happening. It’s not like I’m going to go back on the road full-time or anything. It’s some good opportunities. It makes sense TV-wise, business-wise. I’m there to lend a hand or help out as much as I can.”
Very nice of him.
