Former WWE Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin has been enjoying major success behind his syndicated Podcast on the WWE Network. Every interview he’s given has raised the eyes and ears of wrestling fans and observers alike. The feeling of raw reality and honesty is felt more than anything else the WWE network offers according to many sources.
In his most recent interview, he went mic to mic with that advocate and the “1 behind the 1 behind the 21-1” mouthpiece of former WWE and UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman. The pair went through a number of topics then towards the end Heyman brought up a possible return match for Stone Cold at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas. Paul suggested that the “rattle snake” have one more match and to take on The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar in Austin’s home state of Texas.
Steve went into promo-mode and said “if the stars perfectly align” then it will happen. However long time friend of Austin, Jim Ross took to his weekly blog and addressed the likelihood of the mega match coming to fruition. His faith in it actually happening are slim to none.
“Enjoyed the Steve Austin-Paul Heyman post RAW edition of the Steve Austin Podcast on the WWE Network and was pleased that WWE extended their time approximately 12 minutes as the two could have easily delivered two, compelling hours of entertainment. It brought back old times when Heyman struck the mean dog with a sharp stick when asking @steveaustinBSR about facing Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania Texas in April of 2016. Great intensity by Austin who flipped the switch into promo mode while talking about the topic that the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) had to love. My Twitter timeline @JRsBBQ exploded as many fans reacted as if the match had been made and that Steve was firing the opening salvo of the verbal aspect of what would be a record setting main event.
I’d give an educated guess that the odds of an Austin-Lesnar match being held at Wrestlemania Texas as less than 50-50 and likely closer to 65-35 that it won’t happen. I’d love to be wrong but as Austin said “the stars in the sky would all have to be aligned” for that to happen and I don’t see those stars as being fan friendly for the lack of a better expression.”
