During last night’s episode of WWE Backstage, the panel asked the question: Who would people like to see face Stone Cold Steve Austin should he make a one-night return to WWE?
The panel all had varying opinions on who should be opposite The Texas Rattlesnake with Booker T picking Dolph Ziggler, Paige putting forward Kevin Owens (and herself), while Christian chose AJ Styles.
Seth Rollins was apparently watching the show and suggested that maybe Stone Cold Steve Austin could face…Seth Rollins!
The current Universal Champion tweeted out “MANIA AIN’T THAT FAR AWAY” in response to the question, throwing his hat into the ring should Austin want one more round.
Mania ain’t that far away…. 🤔 https://t.co/o8N8gS9U1m

During a recent episode of the Steve Austin Show podcast, Stone Cold addressed talk of him stepping into the ring once more: “For the last couple of weeks, down there at the RAW reunion in Tampa, down there at the Madison Square Garden show at Monday Night RAW – people always ask me, ‘Hey man, you’re still in really good shape. You got one more match left in you?’ And I tell them, ‘Man.’ I say, ‘You know, it’s a tough thing to think about.’ Physically, would I be able to have one more match? Yes, most definitely, and I could make it to that match without being injured. Although the risks are always there, just because I think all of the surgeries, I had… where I had the spinal stenosis, and getting that bone spur taken off my spinal cord – I’m in a good place. Nerves are feeling a lot better than they use to. So, you know, in theory, could I have a match? In theory, yes.”
