“Stone Cold” Steve Austin Says He is Probably Done Wrestling But Will be at WrestleMania 39

— Stone Cold Steve Austin recently appeared on the Brewbound Podcast where he discussed his health after stepping back into the ring after almost 20 years as well as the prospects of wrestling again next year at WrestleMania:

“Oh, I’m 100 percent. I picked up a little bit of a cold the other day, but I’m back home in Nevada. Shoot, Sunday, I was 100 percent. And of course went back into action on Sunday, did a little extra physicality as a part of the show. But, you know, it’s just an exciting time for me to go back to a business that I really, really love. And, you know, I never thought I’d be back in a ring — but there we were headlining, main event for the, headlining WrestleMania for night one. And it was just truly an honor to be out there and really excited to be able to, just like the last few times I’ve been able to drink our beer, Broken Skull IPA, out in the ring. Couple of years ago we got a lot of exposure from that and just a real proud moment because when El Segundo and myself decided to come out with a lager, which is what everybody was wanting, which is really satisfying because I’ve drank everybody’s beer in the past. I’ve been drinking beer my whole life and I don’t speak technical beer language, but we’ve given all those other brands a little bit of a rub by using their beers. So, to go out there and drink our own beer was very satisfying.”

— When asked if we can expect to see him wrestle next year at WrestleMania 39, he had this to say:

“Well, for me to participate in WrestleMania 38, if you would’ve told me, ‘Hey man, you’re gonna be a part of WrestleMania 38. Not only that, you’re gonna main event night one.’ I would’ve said you’re full of sh*t and you’re crazy. and there I was in Dallas, Texas headlining main event on day one, so never say never. But I would really imagine that within the scope of that show, that’s gonna be a big show in a big-time city and it’ll be a two-night event again, so I’m not– I’m sure I’m done wrestling per se, but as a part of WWE, I can’t imagine I would not be there in some capacity and I’m not booking myself on the show because I didn’t book myself on 38. That’s a Vince thing and I have a great relationship with him and if I get the call, I’ll be there.
