According to The Wrestling Observer, Steve Austin's recent surgery was a major reconstructive operation to repair his ACL and PCL. The surgery was so major that Austin will be unable to do any acting until 2013, and assuming his physical therapy goes according to schedule, he should be able to return to movie shooting in January.
As a result of this surgery and the fact that Brock Lesnar and The Rock are booked for WrestleMania 29, there is virtually no chance that Austin will be wrestling at the event.
