Maybe next time. There are certain stars in wrestling who have become legends in their own time. Since it is wrestling, there is always the chance that they might come back to the ring later, even at the age that most mainstream athletes would long since have retired. There was a hope that some legends would be back in the ring later this year, but that does not seem likely.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: He’s In: Update On WWE’s Plans For Sami Zayn Going Forward
Wrestling Observer Radio has updates on Steve Austin and the Rock’s WrestleMania 39 statuses. Austin will not be wrestling on the show, despite reportedly being offered matches with Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. There is still the chance that Austin will appear at the show in some capacity, but he is not expected to be wrestling. The situation is about the same for the Rock, who is not expected to wrestle at the event, but could appear. Rock has apparently left the door open for a match at WrestleMania 40 in 2024.
They have done their thing at WrestleMania before. Check out the two of them in action:
Opinion: This is one of those situations that makes a lot of sense. Rock and Austin are both in their 50’s and have nothing left to prove in WWE. Austin even wrestled last year and looked rather good, all things considered. Why risk damaging your legacy, or at worst embarrassing yourself, for a one off match? There are more than enough memories between the two and they don’t need to risk adding a bad one to the list.
