AUSTIN 3:16 SAYS I WILL BE LIVE ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW on 3/16!!
OH HELL YEAH!!!#316DAY— Steve Austin (@steveaustinBSR) March 5, 2020
Back in September Austin went on his podcast, The Steve Austin Show, and answered the million-dollar question — will he ever return for one more match?
"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," Austin said. "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," he added.
