• Jim Ross On If “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Will Wrestle At WrestleMania 38
During a recent episode of Ask JR Live on AdFreeShows, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross addressed the rumors of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin coming out of retirement for a match at WrestleMania 38.
Good Ol’JR noted that him and Austin talk once a month.
Below are the highlights:
On rumors of Steve Austin coming out of retirement:
“Steve still has a great passion for the business. 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’s older than him and another legend in Sting has influenced that creative or that idea, I don’t know.
I talk to Steve about once a month, and more often than not, we don’t even talk about wrestling. He doesn’t even watch a lot of wrestling, and I’ve probably watched too much.
So we don’t even go there, it’s a football conversation or it’s home improvement stuff, food, the grill, things like that. And we’re just old friends and there are a million things we can talk about without talking about pro wrestling.”
On if he thinks Austin will wrestle again:
“It’s an interesting concept, he’ll sell a lot of tickets if he’s booked, but [WWE is] burning daylight on getting closer and closer to their d-day.
One would assume if Steve is going to do something, that would be finalized sooner than later. I just don’t know if it’s going to happen or not, someone goes online and it hits the timeline and all of a sudden, it’s fact. It proves our society is very naive, it’s not that simple.
If he wants to do it, I hope he does and I think it would be great because there’s a whole generation of fans that haven’t seen him in his full presentation inside the ring, and I think that would be entertaining for anybody.”
