Steve Austin Turns Down WrestleMania 24 Appearance

Ryan Clark


Stone Cold Steve Austin was interviewed by the Miami Herald this week (link). Austin talked about his new “Legacy of Stone Cold Steve Austin” DVD, his health and his movie career.

Regarding his health, he said, “I feel real good right now. I have an active life, hunting and fishing. I’m making movies. Physically, I feel fine, and my past injuries don’t effect me filming movies. I can do what I need to do in the movies, and it doesn’t hold me back at all.”

He also had some interesting news about the possibility of appearing at WrestleMania 24:

“There was a pitch thrown at me for WrestleMania [24 in Orlando], but I turned it down,” he said. ”I’d like to go to the Hall of Fame and see the guys get inducted. They got enough talent in WWE that they don’t need me for WrestleMania, and it’s not my desire to go back into the ring.”

“If I really needed the money, I’d go back in the ring, but I’ve been conservative with my money and invested wisely. I have fond memories of the business, and I love the business, but I don’t miss it.”

Austin did not totally rule out involvement in WrestleMania 24, but it is unlikely.

“I’m always interested, if they have an idea, a good idea. I love the company. It doesn’t have to be grandiose.”
