Stone Cold Steve Austin could apparently make a return to wrestling in WWE, as per a former WWE Champion. Rob Van Dam, who is a former WWE and ECW Champion, recently spoke about the Hall of Famer potentially returning and said that he "definitely could do it".
Stone Cold Steve Austin hasn't wrestled since 2003, having called time on his career due to various injuries. He has been a part of WWE in other roles in the company since then, and has made appearances on occasion lately.
While speaking to Thibaud Choplin, Rob Van Dam stated that Stone Cold Steve Austin could possibly return to the ring, as he said that there are wrestlers in their 70s who still get into the ring.
"It's definitely possible. If he wants to do it, I think he definitely could do it. You know what I mean? It's an environment that's controlled enough... I've seen guys that are in their seventies that are still wrestling sometimes, and it's not an issue, really. I don't know why he would want through. I mean, he's very successful. He's making so much money, and it seems like he's still on roll, like once a month or something. Anyway, I'm sure it's not that often, but even if he's been away and hasn't wrestled in a while he's been on the show often enough to still have that value. And he always will have that value because he's an icon," said Rob Van Dam. (H/T Rajah)
