Steve Austin thinks about a match with John Cena
Steve Austin Thinks A Match With John Cena Would Have Been “A Real Highlight”
Steve Austin would have loved the opportunity to work with John Cena.
The Rattlesnake spoke on this topic during a recent interview on the Out Of Character podcast, where he explained why a matchup with the former 16-time world champion never came together in WWE. Highlights from Steve Austin’s interview can be found below.
Thinks working with John Cena would have been a highlight for his career:
Working with him would have been a real highlight, and I’ve had a bunch of highlights. It would have been a real special thing. There is something about John Cena. People are so invested in his matches. He’s a very special talent. It would have been great to have a match with him. Will it ever happen? No. I think very highly of John Cena and I love him.
Whether there were pitches for him to come back and wrestle John Cena:
No, not really. Names have always been tossed around in conversation and stuff like that. I said I was never going to really wrestle again, unless, because you never say never, unless the stars aligned properly. They did to work with KO (Kevin Owens) in Dallas, so we did that. It wasn’t really put out, ‘it’s going to be a highly competitive match.’ You weren’t expecting us to go 30 minutes. I think we exceeded the expectations and it worked for that time and place.
