Stone Cold Steve Austin had his return to wrestling earlier this year, main eventing WrestleMania against Kevin Owens.
Shortly after the match, which was Austin's first in 19 years, reports and word emerged that Austin enjoyed the experience and was open to doing it more. It seems like that is a distinct reality, to the surprise of absolutely no one.
Austin posted a video of him working out, in incredible shape this week, that conjured speculation from fans. It's with merit, as we're told WWE at least wants him to do more with the company. Specifically, we're told that while the Vince McMahon regime had hoped to have Austin come back to do another match, that the Triple H regime had actually made an offer for Austin to do another match.
Another source indicated that initially Austin and WWE were far apart on terms initially. Since publishing the story, WWE sources further confirmed that there is major interest in bringing Austin in, and even though he says he's staying in shape in general, they believe it's to maximize his value.
