Stone Cold Steve Austin says WrestleMania 32 may have been his last

Published 10 Comments

Thanks to a whole bunch of injuries to top stars like John Cena and Randy Orton, WrestleMania 32 had a pretty weak card. 

That's why the WWE had to bring back a host of legends to try and improve the show, with The Rock winning the fastest match in 'Mania history against Erick Rowan, while Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin all came out to deliver their finishers to the League of Nations and then dance with The New Day for a bit.

Truth be told, the segment wasn't all that great, but Stone Cold has now come out and revealed that it may have been the last time you ever see him at a WrestleMania.

Last Ever Mania

During his recent appearance on 'You're Welcome With Chael Sonnen', the WWE Hall of Famer said he was happy to be out there in front of the 100,000 fans in Dallas because it is potentially his last time in a WWE ring.

"It was good to go down there [to Dallas, TX for WrestleMania 32]. The situation could have been a little cooler," Austin said. "It was fun to do business with those guys, but the crowd was outstanding. I hope everybody had a good time."

"I don't know when the next time I'll ever hit a WWE ring will ever be again. That might have been the last time."

Dancing and Stunners

Concerning the actual segment with the New Day where the legends came out, Austin said that he nearly vetoed the idea backstage, believing that it wasn't in the Stone Cold character to start dancing in the middle of the ring.

"We were talking about doing the dance scene because he was going to be one of the guys to take a Stunner," Austin said. "And they were selling me this and I was thinking, 'okay, well, 'Stone Cold' don't dance'."

"I was going to shoot it down, but then I said, 'you know what? It's WrestleMania," he added. "It's going to make the pop bigger if I let him get me into it and they think 'okay' because [the fans] know what's coming. They know what's coming."

"And so, you expand the 'Stone Cold' character to another level. It goes with a basic one-step, two-step kind of a thing, which is about all I'm capable of for a shoot and then you hit him with a Stunner after he does a spin. It was the icing on the cake."

Thankfully, Austin came round to the idea and delivered the Stunner to Xavier Woods.

If this really is the last time we ever see Stone Cold Steve Austin in a WWE ring then it is a damn shame. But the man has had a great career and gets to enjoy retirement, so he's winning at life.
