WWE: Stone Cold Steve Austin responds to WrestleMania 32 boycott rumor

Published 6 Comments

Football News

Last week, WWE legend Ric Flair caused a stir when he claimed Stone Cold Steve Austin was considering boycotting next year's WrestleMania 32.

The issue, Flair claimed, was that Austin wanted the WWE to induct  Michael “P.S.” Hayes into the Hall of Fame, and, if they didn't, then the Texas Rattlesnake would be a no-show at the 2016 extravaganza.


After keeping quiet on the claims for almost a week, today has finally seen Stone Cold respond, and it is fair to say the wrestling icon isn't happy with the accusation.

Considering the WWE are plotting to break records with next year's 'Mania, fans will be delighted to learn that one of the organization's biggest draws (even in retirement) isn't going to miss the show after all.

Although, judging by Austin's message, there could be some friction between himself and Ric Flair the next time they meet. 


With the biggest show on the WWE calendar six months away, plans for 'Mania 32 are yet to be announced. 

But, with the AT&T Stadium, in Austin's home state, playing host to the event, there is no doubt that Vince McMahon and co. will be hoping for Austin to play a big part on the night.

There has been speculation that Austin could get back in the ring for a match against current dominant star Brock Lesnar. However, like the rumors of a boycott, this appears highly unlikely.

Indeed, whilst Stone Cold might be there to assist in certain aspect of the show, there is still no guarantee that the retired Superstar gets back into the ring for one more match.
