The Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin retired 19 years ago and has not returned for a match since then. While he has made several cameos but never have a proper match. But from the past few days, there were many reports coming out regarding the Stone Cold Steve Austin’s potential in-ring return to WWE and possible opponent as former Universal Champion Kevin Owens.

According to the Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the match between Stone Cold and Kevin Owens all but confirmed. Despite of Steve Austin turning down offers to return earlier, the solid amount of money being offered will play a significant role in his return.
”Steve Austin looks to be coming out of retirement to face Kevin Owens at WrestleMania this year. As for why now, there is far more money available for these types of matches and Owens is someone who can work a good match and lose. Austin was always going to be a part of the show in some form,” said Meltzer

Dave Meltzer also stated that Austin’s last match came against The Rock at WrestleMania 19, in which he lost. But that match was never promoted as Austin’s retirement match and they kept it as a secret.
”Austin, 57, has not wrestled since his 2003 WrestleMania loss to The Rock. It was never promoted as his retirement match because he did not want to promote it as such, and it was kept secret until the match was over that he would not wrestle again,” said Meltzer
