WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin has dismissed all rumors that he will be in a match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32.
Recent reports have suggested The Texas Rattlesnake could be making a return to the ring in his home state of Texas next year at the biggest wrestling show of the year to go up against The Beast Incarnate.
Stone Cold however, quickly went to Twitter to dismiss all rumors completely, dashing the dreams of many members of the WWE Universe that they would see him in the ring for a match once again for the first time in over ten years.

He said: "You can take my name off the rumor mill as a Brock Lesnar opponent at WM32. B******t reporting."
While Stone Cold has ruled himself out of a match with Lesnar at WrestleMania, he is likely to still make an appearance and have some sort of role in the event. After all, the show is taking place in his home state.
If he was to have any match at next year's show, it would be his first WrestleMania event since he lost against The Rock at WrestleMania 19. This was the same show which Lesnar attempted the Backflip shooting star press from the top rope against Kurt Angle.
While it would be nice to see Stone Cold back in the squared circle once again, I have to agree that he is doing the right thing and not wrestling. This only provides more slots and opportunities to the lesser known talents in the WWE to prove themselves on the big stage.
This leaves Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and The Rock left to respond to the Lesnar WrestleMania 32 opponent call. Could it be any of these?
