In the latest edition of the Steve Austin Podcast, Austin downplayed the speculation of a possible match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32. The speculation started on Austin’s podcast with Paul Heyman on the WWE Network where Heyman asked Austin about facing Lesnar at WrestleMania 32 and Austin went into Promo mode.
According to latest reports, the reason why this match is not happening is because of the issues between Steve Austin & Vince McMahon. Vince was reportedly not happy with how the podcast ended because Austin vs. Lesnar is not in their current WrestleMania 32 plans.
Vince wasn’t aware that Austin & Heyman would tease such a major match when it’s not going to happen. Vince felt that creating major interest in something that’s not going to happen is bad for business.
There was a discussion between Vince & Austin after the podcast where Vince wanted Austin to address this story once, put it away & move on.
