Steve Austin Says He Is 99.9 Percent Sure He’s Had His Last Match

Steve Austin recently spoke with Brian Frtiz of Fox and during the interview, Austin was asked about having a match at WrestleMania 32. Here is an excerpt from that interview:



“I think 99.9 percent I’ve had my last match,” said Austin. “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?” wondered Austin. “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.”

Austin admits that it would have to be a big match for him to return to in-ring action.

“With respect to all of the WWE superstars currently in the system and any legends they could bring back, that would be a big-ass match just because of the fact that if it was going to be my last match going up against Brock Lesnar who’s absolutely on fire right now and the fact that I’m from the great state of Texas. I started in Dallas and could end it in Dallas — that would be all the stars aligning.”
