It's been years since Steve Austin had a proper match, but even at 54 years old, he hasn't completely ruled out the possibility of him having one more match.
On a recent episode of "The Steve Austin Show," Austin addressed the potential of him stepping into the ring for another match. It's been more than a decade since he last wrestled back in 2003. Austin addressed his health and whether or not he can compete in a match without getting injured and said he could despite the everlasting risk of getting hurt.
Austin didn't outright say he was having another match, but simply stated that "in theory," he could have one more match if he tried.
“For the last couple of weeks, down there at the RAW reunion in Tampa, down there at the Madison Square Garden show at Monday Night RAW - people always ask me, ‘Hey man, you’re still in really good shape. You got one more match left in you?’ And I tell them, ‘Man.’ I say, ‘You know, it’s a tough thing to think about.’ Physically, would I be able to have one more match? Yes, most definitely, and I could make it to that match without being injured. Although the risks are always there, just because I think all of the surgeries, I had… where I had the spinal stenosis, and getting that bone spur taken off my spinal cord – I’m in a good place. Nerves are feeling a lot better than they use to. So, you know, in theory, could I have a match? In theory, yes,” Austin said.
Austin was actually advertised to face Jonathan Coachman in 2005 at Taboo Tuesday, but ended up getting pulled from the show and replaced by Batista. Austin still hasn't competed in an actual match since his WrestleMania 19 face-off with The Rock.
