— Stone Cold Steve Austin returned to wrestling earlier this year, competing in what was essentially a match against Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 38. His performance and the reaction was an overwhelming success and Austin himself was completely satisfied with the experience and left the door open for similar interactions in the future.
— Prior to Vince McMahon being ousted from WWE, there was hope from from officials that the company could work something out with Austin to return at a future, likely WrestleMania 39, the Triple H-led regime has gone even further and extended an official offer to the Hall of Famer for another match, according to fightfulselect.com. Austin recently posted a video of working out, showing him to be in tremendous shape, which further fueled speculation that he’s readying himself for another match in the future, whether it’s WrestleMania, at one of the Saudi Arabia events or something else. While initially the two sides were said to be far apart in negotiations, it appears signifiant progress has been made.
