• People Close To Stone Cold Steve Austin Confirm WrestleMania 39 Rumor

We recently reported that WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin was offered two big matches for the upcoming WrestleMania 39 premium live event, one against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and one against ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar, but ended up turning down both offers.

The Wrestling Observer reported that the Lesnar match was actually the way more serious offer, which makes sense considering that Roman would automatically face the Royal Rumble winner, while a Lesnar/Austin match was originally scheduled for a RAW episode in 2002, but Austin walked out of the company that night:

“As noted, there was an attempt for a Lesnar vs. Steve Austin match, as the two have never faced off.

While there may have been mentions of Austin with Roman Reigns at one point, it was never anywhere near serious.

Those close to Austin said it was Lesnar who he was approached about. Austin turned that down.”

Stone Cold returned at last year’s WrestleMania 38 event and even wrestled an impromptu wrestling match, in which he defeated Kevin Owens.
