Brian Fritz of FOX Sports is featuring an interview with WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin where he talks about briefly considering a return to the ring with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and why he feels he has truly wrestled his last match.
“I think 99.9 percent I’ve had my last match. If I felt froggy and wanted to jump for any particular reason, just because I said right now I have the fever for it, I’d like to do it. But for all practical, intrinsic, whatever kind of purposes, I’m done. Again, if I felt like it, could I? Yeah. Would I? In a dream world. possibly. I’m not trying to promote a match and pretty much I am done. I would always reserve the option.
“I considered it for just a brief moment but again, just like I tell everybody, what’s on the backside of a match like that, you know? I got out of the business when I got out. The hunger was out of my system. It’s almost like getting off an addiction. I’m not addicted to wrestling anymore. For a long time I was. So what’s on the backside of that match for me? A whole lot of nothing. So it would be a lot of buildup and, to me, it would be almost anti-climactic.”
