For the majority of the WWE Universe, the dream is to see Stone Cold Steve Austin wrestling in the squared circle one more time.

Fans have been treated to some very special one-off matches over the years, with former superstars making dramatic returns in order to complete just one more match.

However, since his retirement, Stone Cold has not opted to return to the ring and has only returned in a non-wrestling manner, with his segment at WrestleMania 30 alongside Hulk Hogan and The Rock being a particular highlight.

Due to medial reasons, The Rattlesnake called time on his career in 2002, with his horrific neck injury sustained against Owen Hart being the major reason behind his medical problems.

Austin famously broke his neck after a botched piledriver against Hart, and at the time, it was thought his career would be over almost instantly.

In fact, there were fears that he would be paralysed after landing directly on his head, breaking his neck in the process.

Luckily, Austin fully recovered and returned to the ring, but unfortunately, it shaved years off his career, leading to an early retirement.

It's very clear that Austin cannot medically compete again, and with WWE's strict rules to safety, it's unlikely that officials would let him wrestle again even if he wanted to.

Despite this, every WWE fan would love to see Austin go for one more match, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

In his Q&A section on his blog, legendary commentator Jim Ross was asked about Austin's future and whether he would wrestle one more match, and the Hall of Famer is adamant that The Rattlesnake's time inside the ring is over.

JR said: “Nope...Austin is done wrestling."

However, the former commentator did hint at Austin making more non-wrestling cameos in the future.

"However, one never knows when he might make an appearance.”

So it's clear JR expects Austin to make appearances in WWE, like he has done before, but he doesn't expect him to wrestle again.
