Steve Austin Comments On WWE WrestleMania 38 Return
The Rattlesnake could be wrestling for the first time since 2003 at Mania 38
Although not yet confirmed, there is a chance the legendary Stone Cold Steve Austin could be returning to a WWE ring at WrestleMania 38 to wrestle his first match in almost 20 years, against Kevin Owens.
However, what is confirmed is that Austin will be at Mania, and as he revealed on The Rich Eisen Show, he has his reasons for his impending appearance:
“This opportunity comes up, Kevin Owens starts running me down and gets my attention. It was a thing where, I kind of said, 'I'm never going to get in the ring again.' In this business, never say never. I said I would never get in, but prompted by the right person at the right time, hell, I wish he would have pissed me off a little sooner than he did to give me more time to prep. Once you step into the ring, it's like stepping onto a football field, that's where business happens. We don't know what it's going to escalate to. I've been working on my conditioning. Had it been anywhere else other than Jerry's Place…. it's a two-night event, WrestleMania is biggest show of the year, to be part of that is really special to me. I'm doing this for me. I'm going out there to have a damn blast. I'm gonna have fun and I'm gonna wear these two fists out on Kevin Owens. I'm sure he's going to get some to because he's had an amazing career. I'm glad he p****d me off when he did.”
But why now, who is Austin returning for? "I'm doing this for the fans. I'm doing this for WWE. I'm doing this for me, number one,” Austin said.
