Stone Cold Steve Austin Possibly Returning To The WWE

WWE fans are eagerly anticipating the return of one of its biggest stars. Stone Cold Steve Austin is rumored to be heading back and this news has led to all kinds of speculation regarding the future of the Texas Rattlesnake.

Dave Meltzer broke the news in recent Wrestling Observer Newsletters. While Meltzer isn’t guaranteeing anything, something is definitely in the works between Austin and the WWE.

“The company has told its distributors to go into heavy production of Austin merchandise, so expect him to return to television in some form, or for at least a renewed push of his merchandise.”

Nobody has been able to confirm or reveal anything specific regarding this news. The other interesting tidbit is that the WWE promoted Austin’s podcast on RAW a couple of weeks ago. What is interesting about that is they didn’t promote Chris Jericho’s who ironically had C.O.O. Triple H on for a fascinating two-part episode. The promotion of Austin’s podcast and the new merchandise are certainly not a coincidence.

So what would Steve Austin do in 2014 in the WWE? I think and this is all a guess, I think that Austin comes back as some kind of authority figure. I also think that this all could lead to a big one-off return at WrestleMania 31. There have been rumblings for a while now about Austin wrestling Brock Lesnar at Mania 31. I don’t think it is as crazy an idea as some people think.

I have blogged a few times on the odd relationship between Austin and the WWE. I always found it odd that the WWE haven’t used Austin in recent years other than Tough Enough. Austin is right up there with Hogan as one of the biggest stars in company history. Austin still has the gift of gab, looks great, and can certainly bring some element of entertainment to RAW. Yet for whatever reason he hasn’t been on RAW in years. I never understood it.

Whatever the issues were between he and the WWE it would appear that they are now resolved. I can’t think of a better time to see Austin back in the WWE. The company desperately needs a boost and Austin is the guy to give it to them. Whether this culminates into a match or is just some kind of promotional deal, I am just glad the Texas Rattlesnake is back. We all need him!
