During it, the WWE Hall Of Famer spoke about the reports regarding WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin potentially wrestling again at WrestleMania 39.
The current WWE regime led by Triple H wants Austin to wrestle again, but Austin has stated that he’s just getting in better shape. Cornette shared he thinks Austin Theory would be the right opponent for him.
“No. He had the swan song and it was a tremendous swan song. It was my favorite match of the night just because Steve went and did so much more than anybody thought he would. Then Kevin Owens deserves some type of award. I don’t know if the Nobel Peace Prize went to Kevin Owens last year. I could argue he should have won it just for single-handedly carrying that angle. Steve wasn’t even on TV. I think he did one promo by remote. Owens calling the Texas landscape flat and uninspired is just a thing of beauty. Then the next night trying to create an excuse for his loss by saying not only was he lifting weights, he was lifting a lot of weights. Man, there’s a lot you can learn from watching how that program was done, but the main ingredient is that your guy coming back has to be able to deliver on a level or exceed the level that is expected. Steve did such a fantastic job. Of course, people would love to see him and The Rock, but not as much as they’d love to see Rock and Roman, in my opinion.”
