Steve Austin says WrestleMania match against The Rock ”could’ve been better”

WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s feud with The Rock has gone down in history as one of the most iconic feuds in all of professional wrestling. Their feud ended at WrestleMania 19 in 2003, which was Steve Austin’s final match as an in-ring competitor. It was the third match at WrestleMania in their feud.



‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin was recently a guest on WWE’s The Bump. During the show, Steve Austin discussed his WrestleMania 19 match against The Rock.

Austin said that barely anyone knew it was going to be his last match. He said that only The Rock and a few people in management were aware of the fact. He also added that the match could have been better

“Nobody really knew this was going to be my last match; The Rock knew, and a couple of guys in management knew. I was going to go ride off into the sunset,” he stated. “I defeated The Rock two times prior at WrestleMania, and at WrestleMania 17, we rocked the house…I thought the match was good, but it could have been better.

“I love The Rock. Right there, that part in the ring, he pushes Earl Hebner out of the way and says, ‘Hey man, I appreciate everything you did for. I just want you to know that I love you.’ I’m laying there with my eyes closed, and I said, ‘I love you, too.’ He meant it, and I meant it. Like we both said, we bring out the best in each other.”
