Stone Cold Steve Austin pitched for BLOCKBUSTER WWE WrestleMania main event in ‘enormous money deal’ | The Sun

STONE COLD Steve Austin has reportedly been made an “enormous offer” to fight Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.

The WWE legend shocked the world when he came out of retirement after 19 years at WrestleMania 38 to defeat Kevin Owens in an impromptu No Holds Barred Match.

The six-time world champion was originally scheduled to appear on Owens' KO Show on WrestleMania's first night and many expected it to be a simple segment.

However, KO continued to insult the state of Texas, which hosted this year's Mania, and The Texas Rattlesnake was so infuriated he agreed to face him in a match and defeated him with a Stunner.

Many want to see him in another match and the WWE Hall of Famer previously refused to rule out another return with speculation mounting that he could come back again in April for WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles.

WWE were originally hopeful of pitting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in a huge main event against Undisputed Champion Reigns.

However, Fightful Select now claims the company has made Stone Cold an “enormous offer” to get in the ring with Reigns.

They state that his camp have been “approached with the possibility of it happening” – but nothing has been officially decided yet.

Austin turned 58 last month but recently shared a workout video on his Instagram that shows how he is still in mega condition.

The legendary Texas Rattlesnake became the biggest name in the wrestling business back in the 1990s during the iconic Attitude Era.
