“Stone Cold” Steve Austin retired after his WrestleMania 19 match with The Rock. Austin retired due to the severe neck issue he was having due to the broken neck suffered in his match with Owen Hart at Summerslam in 1997. Throughout the years, Austin has always a shot down a return to the ring and at this point in his life seems highly unlikely.
Austin said during his podcast, “The Steve Austin Show”, earlier this week that he would be in New Orleans to attend the WWE Hall of Fame, but hadn’t stated whether he would be at WrestleMania 30 this Sunday.
TMZ earlier today caught up with Austin, who confirmed to them he will be at the big show. When asked what he his role would be at Wrestlemania, Austin was non-committal.
“That’s breaking news, I cannot tell you right here at the airport!,” Austin said.
