With the recentreturnof alumni Brock Lesnar and The Rock to WWE, how likely are we to see you compete in a WWE ring again?

Austin: Ah, that's a good question. Who knows? I'm really happy doing the acting things that I do. I'm really happy doing 'Redneck Island.' I love this show. I love the element of reality television. I'm having a good time. No one'schasingme around with a steelchair. I'm not traveling all over the world. I've been there, and I did it at a high level. I'm not going to rule out areturn, but I'm not saying a return is in the near future.


Consider that he hasn't wrestler an actual match since WM19 vs the Rock, I'd say he has had tons of time to heal.. look what all of that time off did for HBK (4 years out due to his back) & then how much longer he stayed. Austin returning to the ring would be bigger than the Rock IMO, and to start it off (or just a 1 time deal) it needs to be someone who can make even Khali look great... and that all points to Punk

His return is not bigger than the Rock's. He's a 50 year old reality tv star nowadays. He'll probally get better tv ratings than what WM 28 got but that's after a year's worth of build.

If Austin came back he's not returning full time. Match with Punk, and a match with Cena and that's about it. There really isn't much interest in Austin v Cena either.

Austin can barely wrestle anymore (if any), as his knees are all but destroyed not to mention that he still has those spinal issues that go back to when the late Owen Hart piledrived him into the ring. If he would compete, Punk or Cena would have to sell it pretty well.
I think watching Stone Cold wrestle a match again would be like watching Bret in the ring a couple years ago. The way he takes forever to get up after stunning someone is sad.

True, I did enjoy seeing Bret Hart wrestle again. HIs work in Summerslam & MSG houseshow were good & he was faster in those events.

That Wrestlemania match against Vince and when he beat Miz for the US title were awful though.

I heard that he wants to retire in a few years but haven't heard that he's retiring this early. Thought he would hang around to wait for Austin too. That match seems to be inevitable at this point.

Probally won't happen this year though due to all of the star power they already have.

Austin will never wrestle again.

Austin was quoted the other day as being "100% cleared to wrestle" and facing Punk was at the top of his list. I think the match should be saved fror WM 30.


Really? I thought he was still on a bum knee from surgery

I always thought it was the neck injury that forced him into retirement.

he's going to always be banged up due to wear and tear on his body, but he's prob healed up enough to wrestle a match or two



Naw, he had knee surgery this past July. It's the reason he missed RAW 1000. I think it was JR that mentioned 4-6 months recovery. I'll find a link.

I agree. They should have planned it better but Bret agreeing to return & do something for WM, they rushed it.

WCW always sucked. The only way they were ahead in the ratings for a while was because everyone who watched WWF wanted to see all their old favorites.
