Stone Cold Steve Austin jokingly teases a match at WWE WrestleMania 39 (Exclusive)

Stone Cold's last match was at WrestleMania 38

Six-time WWE Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin recently spoke about squaring off against Hall of Fame journalist Bill Apter and J.J. Dillon in a tag team match.

The wrestling veteran will be inducted into the International Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame this year. Bill Apter recently stated that Austin was missing from the Hall of Fame ceremony last year because he couldn't find a tag team partner to face him and J.J. Dillon for the tag team championships.

In an exclusive with Sportskeeda Wrestling, the former six-time WWE Champion also joined the banter and said that he stayed away from the event because he did not want to cross paths with Apter and Dillon.

"Man, if I could have found a partner tough enough, I thought we would give you guys a run for your money. Y'all might have retained but then again, you might have dropped them as well we'll never know. I couldn't find a partner tough enough to mesh with my brawling style and y'all's technical proficiency," Austin said.

During the hilarious back-and-forth, Austin also put Bill over as a straight shooter in the ring. The Texas Rattlesnake even joked about returning to the ring at WWE WrestleMania 39 to face Apter in some capacity.

"It's a scary thing. I've got to stay away from a guy like you. A real stretcher and a shooter. I got the bad wheels. If you lock something in on me, I might be prone to tap. But then again, I am Stone Cold, I don't tap. Who knows what would've happened. Maybe WrestleMania 39 in LA," the Hall of Famer added. [From 5:09 - 5:48]
