Over the past few weeks rumors have begun to heat up about a possible in-ring return for WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin. The speculation gained steamed when Fightful reported that “WWE has made a significant overture towards one of the biggest draws in WWE history ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin for an in-ring return at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, Texas.”
One of the closer friends of Steve Austin has given his take on a possible comeback for the Texas Rattle Snake. While speaking in a Q&A Session for AdFreeShows, Jim Ross was asked what he thought about the news of Austin potentially returning.
“Steve still has great passion for the business. He’s 50 years old, I don’t think he wants to reignite his wrestling career. I don’t know that the success that AEW has had with a guy that is older than him, and another legend in Sting, has influenced that creative or idea, I don’t know. I talk to Steve about once a month and more often than not we don’t talk about wrestling. He doesn’t watch a lot of wrestling and I probably watch too much. We just don’t go there. It’s a football conversation or home improvement stuff or food, the grill. We’re just old friends and there are a million things we can talk about, we don’t have to talk pro wrestling. It’s an interesting concept. He’ll sell a lot of tickets if he’s booked. They’re burning daylight on getting closer and closer to their D-Day. One would assume that if he’s going to do something, it’ll be finalized sooner or later. I just don’t know if it’s going to happen or not. It goes online, hits the timeline, and all of a sudden it’s fact. It proves our society is very naïve. It’s not that simple. If he wants to do it, I hope he does. It would be great. There is a whole generation of fans that haven’t seen his full presentation inside the ring. I think it would be entertaining for anybody.”
Austin has not appeared on WWE television since 3:16 Day at the beginning of the pandemic, but he has remained busy with his Broken Skull Sessions show on Peacock and the WWE Network internationally. A comeback still hasn’t been confirmed, however.
