Report: Steve Austin offered match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that there was a pitch – and a good offer – for Stone Cold Steve Austin to return to the ring at WrestleMania 39 to face none other than Brock Lesnar.

Earlier in the day, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful said that Austin was pitched a match against Roman Reigns but Meltzer said that it was always Austin vs Lesnar and Reigns was never in the picture for Austin.

Austin vs Lesnar never happened in WWE because when it was booked to happen with no backstory and just a regular King of the Ring qualifier, The Rattlesnake walked out of WWE.

Stone Cold returned to the ring last year at WrestleMania and participated in a match against Kevin Owens, headlining night one of the show. That was his first match in 19 years.

Austin looks in great shape at the moment and recently uploaded several videos of himself training.
