Rob Van Dam, the former WWE star recently spoke to Thibaud Choplin. He gave his thoughts on the return of WWE icon, Steve Austin to the squared circle.
It’s definitely possible: Rob Van Dam
The former WWE Champion said there are people in their seventies who step foot in the ring and have bouts and explained the possibility of Austin for in-ring return.
“It’s definitely possible. If he wants to do it, I think he definitely could do it. You know what I mean? It’s an environment that’s controlled enough… I’ve seen guys that are in their seventies that are still wrestling sometimes, and it’s not an issue, really. I don’t know why he would want through. I mean, he’s very successful. He’s making so much money, and it seems like he’s still on roll, like once a month or something. Anyway, I’m sure it’s not that often, but even if he’s been away and hasn’t wrestled in a while he’s been on the show often enough to still have that value. And he always will have that value because he’s an icon.”
Austin was forced to retire from in-ring competition back in 2003 due to injuries he suffered throughout his career.
Since then Austin has made several appearances in WWE over the years. He had his last bout at WrestleMania 19 when he faced The Rock in a losing effort.
