Stone Cold vs Finn Balor
From superstars that have been a part of the WWE in the past, the Texas Rattlesnake said he would like to wrestle Andre the Giant. He also said he liked Finn Balor on the current NXT roster as well.

He said: "A guy that I've always had so much respect for and only got a chance to meet one time was Andre the Giant. So, I would like to play Andre the Giant as myself, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.
“And some of the new guys that they're bringing into this game like Finn Bálor, who I think is an outstanding talent and a veteran who's moved to WWE, but a guy who is probably one of the best wrestlers in the world. There are many dream matchups that I could sit and talk to you about all day."
Stone Cold vs Sting
Stone Cold was also asked about a hypothetical match between him and WCW icon Sting at the Baltimore Arena.
"Man, the Baltimore Arena… I was talking about this just the other day on my podcast. Man, that was a rough building. A fun building to work that just hadn't been upgraded in such a long time. I think Baltimore was really, in Sting's WCW days, a stronghold for him,” he said.
“Chicago was that stronghold for me. And don't get me wrong: Sting was over wherever he went. I think the guy is WWE Hall of Fame material. But I do believe that that was one of his strongholds way back in the day. So, that man, I tell you what, that ain't a bad matchup and he's another guy that I worked with many times down in WCW.
“When he was on top, I was kind of a mid-card guy and we had great matches. It would be great to play 'Stone Cold' vs. Sting in any arena you can pick, and if you're going to pick the Baltimore Arena, I'm down with that."
Stone Cold vs John Cena
When asked who he’d like to face on the current roster, only one name sprung to mind. John Cena.
He said: "Man, John Cena. I got a lot of respect for that guy. You talk about a road warrior, a guy that works his tail off, shows up with a smile on his face every single day and adds himself to shows when he's needed.
“Hell, even when he's not needed, the guy just loves to get on the road, and he loves the company that much. He's an absolute workhorse. I've seen John Cena have great matches with so many great talents, but I don't think there's anybody that could light his a** up to a level of intensity more than myself as 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.
“So I'd love to tangle with John Cena, and I tell you, that guy's an absolute machine in the ring. He never gets tired. He's a gym freak. He's one of the strongest guys in the business. I really like what he does inside the ring, and I would really like to mess with him to see what kind of magic we could create."
It wasn’t too long ago that John Cena revealed his dream opponent in the ring would be Stone Cold as well. Could the WWE capitalise on these two legendary superstars dreams and make it a match at WrestleMania 32? Wouldn’t that be exciting to see!
What do you think? Should the WWE set up a match of John Cena v Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 32? Leave a comment below….
