Stone Cold Steve Austin is, for all intents and purposes, done wrestling.
The legendary WWE grappler, who recently appeared on the Oct. 19 edition of Monday Night Raw, confirmed as much in an interview with Fox Sports Monday, saying there's a .01 percent chance we see him back in the squared circle.
"I think 99.9 percent I've had my last match," said Austin. "If I felt froggy and wanted to jump for any particular reason, just because I said right now I have the fever for it, I'd like to do it. But for all practical, intrinsic, whatever kind of purposes, I'm done. Again, if I felt like it, could I? Yeah. Would I? In a dream world. possibly. I'm not trying to promote a match and pretty much I am done. I would always reserve the option."
There has been wild speculation that Austin would make his return to the ring for the first time in 12 years at Wrestlemania 32 next April against Brock Lesnar. But if we take him at his word, it ain't happening.
