The Rock, Hulk Hogan and Shawn Michaels have all pretty much been ruled out of WrestleMania for various reasons.

But Texas native Stone Cold Steve Austin was still largely tipped to make a surprise comeback at WrestleMania.

However it now appears the the WWE have made a subtle move to confirm that not only will Austin not be competing at WrestleMania, but he is now officially retired.

In the wake of LA Lakers legend Kobe Bryant announcing his retirement from basketball at the end of the current season, the WWE decided to put a video playlist together of famous retirement matches.

Stone Cold's WrestleMania XIX match against the Rock was featured on the list - a match that has never been labelled as a retirement match.

The match was Stone Cold's last match in the WWE and it now appears that they have confirmed Stone Cold Steve Austin is now retired.

This should bring to an end the rumours around a shock WrestleMania match for Stone Cold, but it also wouldn't be the first time someone came out of retirement in the WWE.

Who could return?

With Austin now seemingly ruled out of competing at WrestleMania, which legends could be set to make a return to the company for a WrestleMania showdown?

Currently the biggest names being listed to make a shock return to the Showcase of the Immortals are Batista and Goldberg.

Who they could be coming up against is a completely different question which I'm sure will have many of answers suggested between now and Mania.
