There’s been plenty of talk over the past few years of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin returning for one more match. And wouldn’t it make sense to have it at WrestleMania 32 next year in his home state of Texas ?
At the end of the hour long conversation, Heyman turned the table on Austin and asked him about coming back to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32. Rather than giving a flat out no, Austin went into promo mode saying he would “beat Lesnar’s ass” and it might not be the best decision for Lesnar to face him.
Austin added that he would really have to think about it and Heyman pushed him about making it happen.
“We can discuss it,” Austin said. “I would have three words for you… Texas Death Match.”
Austin stated he wouldn’t want to get into a scientific match with a guy like Lesnar but he will consider it and might even call Lesnar to talk more.
It was pretty obvious that this was set up between two smart wrestling minds to get the wheels turning on a possible supermatch between Austin and Lesnar. The fact that the WWE has posted the segment online tells you this was more than just a random question that was squeezed in.
With WWE looking to break the all-time WrestleMania attendance record and pack in more than 100,000 fans next year at AT&T Stadium, this could be a huge hook to making that happen.
While ‘Stone Cold’ hasn’t officially said yes, it’s obivous he is open to the match and returning the ring for the first time since WrestleMania 19, more than a decade ago.
Let the buzz continue — will we get a dream match at WrestleMania 32 between Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar? Do you want to see it?
