• Mick Foley Explains Why He Doesn’t Want Stone Cold Steve Austin To Wrestle At WrestleMania 39
6-Time WWF Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin gave the fans a taste of the Attitude Era once again, when he came out of retirement after 19 years at WrestleMania 38.
In the main event of Night 1, he defeated Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred match.
Then on Night 2, he laid out Vince McMahon, Austin Theory & Pat McAfee with Stunners and had his usual Beer Bath.
Austin has been training hard as of late to get in better physical shape and has lost a lot of weight too. It was reported recently that WWE has offered him another match.
On the latest episode of his podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley was asked if he’d like to see Austin in a match at WrestleMania 39.
Below is what the former WWF Champion said:
“No. He had the swan song and it was a tremendous swan song. It was my favorite match of the night just because Steve went and did so much more than anybody thought he would.
Then Kevin Owens deserves some type of award. I don’t know if the Nobel Peace Prize went to Kevin Owens last year. I could argue he should have won it just for single-handedly carrying that angle. Steve wasn’t even on TV. I think he did one promo by remote.
Owens calling the Texas landscape flat and uninspired is just a thing of beauty. Then the next night trying to create an excuse for his loss by saying not only was he lifting weights, he was lifting a lot of weights.
Man, there’s a lot you can learn from watching how that program was done, but the main ingredient is that your guy coming back has to be able to deliver on a level or exceed the level that is expected. Steve did such a fantastic job.
Of course, people would love to see him and The Rock, but not as much as they’d love to see Rock and Roman, in my opinion.”
