ESPN’s Marc Raimondi recently spoke to WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. During the interview Austin discussed not wanting to return for one more match.
“I did what I did, and in WrestleMania 19, that was my last match with The Rock and he beat me 1-2-3 right in the middle of the ring. Took three Rock Bottoms, but that was the last match that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will ever have.”
On if there’s anyone he would want to face:
“I’m not gonna name names. As soon as I do that, everybody is gonna start making these fantasy matches.”
“The wrestling business for me, it’s very addictive. I was hooked on that business, and I loved it. As many years as I’ve been away from the business, I have fond memories… why go back and get so immersed in that world, knowing that it would be a short road? And the build-up and then the match. I just think when it was all said and done, it would be anticlimactic for me. I don’t have anything to prove.”
