Stone Cold Steve Austin: Names considered for WrestleMania 39 match

Last updated

Stone Cold Steve Austin is expected to be returning for WrestleMania 39, but who could the Rattlesnake be facing at the event?

According to a recent report/rumor from Xero News, there are at least two names that have been discussed as potential opponents for the former WWE Champion.

“Stone Cold Steve Austin is said to be working WrestleMania, with John Cena facing Logan Paul as reported” the site began on its Patreon subscription service.

“WWE are now looking at options to face Steve Austin, Baron Corbin and Austin Theory were names brought up, but his opponent has not been decided yet” the site concluded.

It’s worth noting that this rumor from Xero News is just that, a rumor, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

Getting Austin back for another match at WrestleMania is a fantastic coup for the company, especially as his contest with Kevin Owens last year was heavily praised.

Having said that, a bout against Baron Corbin or Austin Theory would certainly feel like a letdown, so hopefully, Triple H and co will be able to find someone with a suitable amount of star power to make another Austin return feel as epic as it should.
