We noted before how John Cena was rumored for the role of special guest referee of the upcoming Survivor Series match between Jinder Mahal and Brock Lesnar.
However, it appears that Cena is not the only big name being considered for the role and there are a couple of big Attitude Era stars who can end up playing this part.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Vince McMahon is considering both the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin to be the special guest referee of the upcoming Champion vs. Champion bout.
While Austin is retired from in-ring competition McMahon believes that there is still intrigue of him and Lesnar being together in the same ring and the belief is that this will benefit Mahal too.
With the Rock, there would be the problem of his schedule and how much an appearance form him would cost, so Steve Austin looks to be a more obvious choice at this point.
Though there is enough time between now and the Survivor Series PPV, and plans could still take an unexpected turn so we should wait for an official announcement from the company.
