Steve Austin’s Rumored WrestleMania XXX Opponent, Undertaker’s Status

had been rumored for a possible match at this year’s , but those plans are now off. is currently recovering from recent shoulder surgery and at this point, it’s doubtful whether he’ll be healthy in time for XXX next April.

– Speaking of WrestleMania XXX, speculation continues that WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” will return for one more match at the event.  In the event that WWE and can reach a deal for him to appear – the current plan is for to wrestle his former tag team championship partner (and heated adversary): Triple H.

A Steve Austin vs. Triple H feud would be an extension of the storied Austin vs. McMahon Family feud and would involve Triple H turning heel.

  • COMMENT BELOW and tell is if you like the idea of Steve Austin vs Triple H at WrestleMania XXX, or if you’d rather see Austin wrestle CM Punk (or someone else).

  • yo

    NOOOOOO! If this happens I will loathe HHH, and not in the way he wants fans to hate a heel. What a waste…

    • Warren Jones

      Give me a Break, your obviously NOT a True HHH Fan… As triple H Got his Name and Start from those Epic Heels Turns WAY Before DX.. Hunter Herst Helmsley. at the beginning of the Attitude era(Or Just Before).

      • HA!

        lol dude im sure everyone here is still a fan of HHH but what we all cant stand is his egotistical self having to get involved in everyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy feud and completely burry new talent with out them getting over at all. HHH has changed big time. has always been an egotistical jackass. but now with corporate ties its just a little ridiculous how he winnnnnns everytimeeeee. hes turing into cena lol

        • Warren Jones

          LOL, you obviously dont watch wrestling on the same planet, as HHH has lost… ALOT…
          http://www.profightdb.com/wrestlers/triple-h-193.html?prom_id=2

          The only one hes actually WON Was Mania 29 where his CAREER Was on the line.

          • HA!

            nono u don’t watch wrestling sir. im not talking about plain little matches here and there that he doesn’t really even lose. he ahs to lose on technicality or something to protect the image. im talking about the feuds he ahs with everyone and burries them 50ft deep. u mean to tell me him already being a future HoFer and the leader of this company couldn’t let Curtis axel get over one night? or even Brock Lesnar so he looks like a legit threat to punk and not just a wose who lost to triple H

          • Thomas Wing

            You don’t have to pin someone to get over. They are pushing Curtis as a heel right. Even though he beat Triple H by countout he still beat him. Curtis Axel will always have the bragging point of beating Triple H & John Cena in consecutive weeks even if it is by countout. He didn’t bury Axel.

            Wins every time?? Ok lets look at his track record from 2011-2013.
            3-6….that’s 3 wins and 6 losses. You are obviously delusional. Only one of those is a Raw Match.

          • D-Bry-Punk Rematch!!!

            CM Punk losing to Triple H put Punk’s momentum to a screeching halt, I thought that was the general consensus among WWE fans.

          • Thomas Wing

            If a 434 day title reign is a screeching halt then yes you are correct.

          • D-Bry-Punk Rematch!!!

            I mean, the fact that he was the hottest superstar and they had him take a loss in the middle of his push to a guy who isn’t on the active roster. He regained momentum by beating Del Rio and his title reign was almost better than the original Summer of Punk.

          • Thomas Wing

            If a 434 day title reign is a screeching halt then yes you are correct.

          • Steve P.

            Lol did he put punk over? Did he even need to be involved with punk? Did he need to make axel look weak when they’re trying to push him? Now he’s throwing his name in this? The 2 marque matches that EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE ARE AUSTIN VS PUNK OR AUSTIN VS BROCK

            NNNOOOOOBBBOOODDDYYY WANTS HHH INSERTED HERE

        • yo

          @HA! – he is an ego maniac, totally agree.

      • yo

        Never said I was a fan of his dude, not sure how you got that from my post. Plus, i think most people on this site DON’T need a history lesson on HHH, we get it.

        • HA!

          Lol tell me about it. that link had like every match and outcome down to a science talk about fanboy lol

      • comicbookfan23

        HHH was not a star before DX he was a good young wrestler who had potential but was on the verge of being buried because they were a ton of guys coming into the business who had that kind of potential but shawn help him realize that I am not one of those idiots who claims he owe everything to being married to steph but he had a lot of help along the way you would have to be blind not to see that but he did become a great he is great in ring and on the mic and is a very smart guy on the business end but he had to learn like everyone else and he had some of the best to teach him.

  • monkey

    God please no……Triple H needs to have the big feuds with everyone doesn’t he……no different than jeff jarrett

    • Warren Jones

      Triple H, Cena, And Punk are the only 3 that are still active in todays roster that can even come close to giving the prestige to a match that it deserves (Hopefully they push DB further, and he could potentially be up there with them, if his Mic Skills improve a bit more)

      • Ted Gal

        LESNAR?

    • pwnez

      I think we were all expecting the rumored match to be CM Punk vs Austin. I’m tired of seeing HHH in all these big named matches for ‘Mania. WrestleMania 30 isn’t for another 9 months so i’m hoping things change.

  • nelson

    i like triple h, and the matches he had years ago with steve austin were classic, but id rather see stone cold vs cm punk.

    • Warren Jones

      I Actually would like to see Stone Cold Vrs Cena, As it could continue the unfinished buisness the two had when austin passed the torch so to speak to Cena.

      • arghargharhr

        I wouldn’t say anyone passed the torch to cena really. Everyone was on there way out when he was starting to get really big. honestly id say jbl is the one who passed the torch onto him since he put him over as champ for first time. the pop for him back then was huge

        • Warren Jones

          Yes, Miss THAT Cena, the one that had a Gimmick, Made us want to watch him.

          • Andrew Campbell

            I was his biggest fan back then, but it all went downhill after he was drafted to Raw. I was already sick of him by the end of 2005, so you can imagine how I feel about him now 8 years later.

          • HA!

            cena really needs to get a new image. several superstars have had many gimmicks and are still some of the best of all times. cena ahs been with this HLR respect the troops and my many tshirts for more than 8 years now!!!!!!!! change it up god. even little kids are getting bored now. I mean look @8 year old boy. he cant stand him now lol.

          • Andrew Campbell

            lol 8 year old boy’s opinion on Cena has done a complete 180. WWE and Cena are too afraid to break outside their comfort zone. They’ve had many great opportunities in the past 2 years to take Cena’s character in a different direction and didn’t do it. I don’t think it will ever happen at this point.

      • nelson

        i think it all comes out how would be the storyline and the match itself.xd

  • pwnez

    I know this isn’t definite yet but if this does end up happening i’m going to be really disappointed.

    • Andrew Campbell

      If Austin ever does return, I think it will be on his own terms and it’s for that reason I don’t see Austin v HHH happening. He will most likely want to pick his own opponent and that guy would more than certainly be Punk.

      • SOBI

        HHH will definitely lose so there IS a chance Austin might agree.

    • SOBI

      I’d be pretty happy,
      I know Punk vs Austin would be great too but
      this is also be a treat plus the promo quality would also be very good because these two have never really liked each other and that makes up for a good storyline in its self

    • SOBI

      There are these 6 guys of the AE
      Undertaker, Jericho, Rock, Austin, Angle and HHH
      you put anyone against anyone among these 6 regardless
      they would have a good match and the promos would be awesome and
      the people are gonna love it and the ratings WILL be very High

  • Noach

    Austin shouldn’t wrestle anyone but CM Punk if he comes back. The story is already written. HHH needs to go to Orlando and stay there and show aspiring wrestlers the WWE way and stay out of storylines. Jericho is the only old timer who has it right. Come in to use your star status to put over the next generation of stars. Punk, Ziggler, Fandango, Ryback. I could see him wrestling someone like Ambrose when he comes back next time. HHH and the Undertaker was fine, but Punk needs Austin next year.

  • Pozessed

    I don’t really think Undertaker needs to be at Summerslam, it is better to have him at Wrestlemania. To be honest, HHH Vs Stone Cold would be a decent feud but it has been done before, I could see him and CM Punk having a good feud.

  • Stew-ED!

    I would rather a new feud, like with CM Punk or anyone new. Triple H doesn’t need this at all, he does need to step back though and give someone worthy an opportunity at SCSA, and then SC could turn this guy into gold. These could just be mere rumors anyway.

  • Anonymous18

    I’d much rather he face Punk but I can do with this too if it means the return of Stone Cold. Another few McMahon-Stone Cold promos would be really awesome and something for the new fans to have a look on what they missed out.

    • Fan

      Goldberg vs Austin!

      • pwnez

        CM Punk vs Austin! The beer guzzler vs the straight edge superstar.

        • localmusicians

          YES that would be a good match AND the promo’s would rock

      • Andrew Campbell

        In 1999 that match would’ve been incredible. But not in 2013.

      • Andrew Campbell

        In 1999 that match would’ve been incredible. But not in 2013.

      • localmusicians

        NOOOOOOO

    • TotalNonstopAddict

      It wouldn’t make sense at all to turn the McMahon feud into HHHvs Austin. That would mean Austin is representing Vince, ie would suddenly show up to defend the man he spend oh-so-many episodes of Raw humiliating for his own entertainment. There’s no way they would spin that to make it work.

  • Andrew Campbell

    If Austin does return for ONE MORE MATCH (which I still think is unlikely), why waste it on a match with Triple H??

    • pwnez

      To feed HHH and the McMahon’s huge egos.

  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    Taker will be good by Mania season…

    ….HHH motherfuck.

  • linda

    sounds like a good deal to me. Love them both!

  • Jam Jam

    Stone Cold would be a draw against a potato, Triple H still has some star power so surely the card would be stronger them against different opponents business wise anyway, if this happens I feel it just shows HHH wont do what is right for the company.

    • Thomas Wing

      If it draws money…then its what is right for the company.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/DJKenKenSwag KenKen Beats

    ………….no. Can we please get Stone Cold vs Punk?

  • boogie

    really triple h?… really? nobody wants to see you wrestle dummy. just stone cold vs the most deserving man in wwe – CM Punk.

  • SomeInternetGuy

    This Monday….HHH and Mark Henry vs Shield in the first hour. Second hour he comes to Punk’s aid who’s getting beat up by Axel and Lesnar. Then he helps Kane find the buzzards.

  • Louis Salera

    Its 1999 all over again

  • 2d

    f’n HHH…

  • Adouble

    The only good thing that can come out of that would be Hunter turning heel, that would be interesting. But I would still rather see Punk vs Austin for the first time, we’ve seen Austin and Triple in their prime go at it a lot.

  • Thomas Wing

    I would love to see Austin vs. Triple H one more time. Would rather have Austin/Punk but if you can’t have that then you can’t go wrong with Austin vs. Triple H.

  • Kronicz

    HHH and Austin ….WHAT! No one wants to see that.

  • Joshua Edwards

    I say SuperCena vs. Austin, and after Cena wins he get ICON status finally…

  • Abid Chowdhury

    the biggest guys who the balls to say things from out of their mouth are stone cold and cm punk, so punk vs austin is a match we would want to see, not triple h vs austin, we already saw that

  • Yo Daddy

    Against HHH??? Uh….. okay?

  • Name

    Austin vs Punk or we riot.

  • sycokrazyk

    well i think he should probably put over a future star. but the whole mcmahon austin tbing could be huge.. either way i think the story line would could and should out do the match so i think the creative team should put in some over time or call me and ill make it damn good and the rest would be up to the vuys. ÷) i want taker v.s sting. in my book it wohld be the greatest matchup of ALL time. ut hurry efore they get any older.

  • joshoct1884

    i still wanna see austin vs. lesnar the match that never took place

  • EdgeheadY2J

    HHH booking himself in the main event and stealing somebodies thunder? Shocker

  • VICE

    If its true, its typical WWE, fans scream for what they want and then WWE does something else. I’ve seen Triple H vs Austin… like 13 years ago. Austin is only gonna wrestle one or two matches and we have to waste one on Triple H and his ego.

  • Stranger

    If Austin doesn’t face Punk then he shouldn’t wrestle at all.

  • comicbookfan23

    as long as they don’t restrict the mic work and give these guys free creative reign the build up will be great the match is just icing.

  • DEX

    I’d like to see Austin take on Daniel Bryan.
    Brock Lesnar vs. Cryback (for the WWE title… where Cryback gets the victory)
    The Rock vs. Roman Reigns
    CM Punk vs. Bray Wyatt (battle of the stick men)
    John Cena vs. Triple H (Yes… HEEL Cena representing Vince McMahon, and Triple H representing himself for “takeover of the WWE”)
    Dean Ambrose vs. Y2J
    Curtis Axel vs. Seth Rollins (for the IC title with Seth Rollins winning)
    Heel Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler (for the WHC with Ziggler winning)
    PTP vs. Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro vs. Tons of Funk (for the tag team titles with PTP winning and Naomi and Cameron joining up with PTP)
    Mark Henry vs. Big E Langston
    AJ Lee vs. Aksana for the divas title.
    And finally Undertaker vs Fandango at WM 30. And the week before WM 30, a mixed tag between Undertaker and Michelle McCool against Fandango and Summer Rae.
    And NO… this card is not a joke. It’s time WWE did something different than the same old predictable sheeeeeeit.

  • Esat

    any how triple h turns heel!!!!!!! that would be the worst thing ever!!!! but i do like the idea of austin vs punk!!

  • Darin Urbine

    This would be a good match. These two have already put on amazing matches before and I have confidence they can still do it at this point. That speaks volumes for how piss poor new talent is when older guys can still out perform you. They missed their chance for Austin/Punk at WM29…with Punk on his respect me heel run..it would of been great. He’s a babyface now and if they turn him again, it will just end up looking like a terrible flipflopper.

    Cmpunk Vs Steve Austin
    Straight Edge vs Drunken red neck
    Cmpunk could be cutting a promo about somebody at summer slam
    Stone cold comes out with a Beer truck and sprays punk with Budwiser

  • Triple-H

    Hey we gotta do whats right for buisness and if that means burying stone cold steve austin so be it

  • Marko

    How about Punk vs Austin as the main event of Wrestlemania 30 and if they want to turn HHH heel again (although it has been since 2006 that he wasn’t heel so it would be awesome to see Trips as a bad guy again) and if management wants him to have real fan heat they could put Daniel Bryan as representing Vince assuming the crowd would totaly be cheering for Bryan since he is one of the most over guys on the whole roster.

  • MOON CENA

    .. AUSTIN VS PUNK .. > AUSTIN VS TRIPLE H .. ANY DAMN DAY !!

  • Mr. Backlund

    Not buying it. With all the talk about a HHH/Vince angle culminating at Wrestlemania, Vince would have to be the face to have the Rock as his representative, and Vince is already showing signs of going heel.

  • what

    I WANT TO SEE STONE COLD VS THE ROCK…austin from hhh side rrock from vince side..hbk as special refree with sweet chin musin to the rock and austinn wins..

    • Sub-Zero

      Why would you want to waste Austin’s last match…. on Austin’s last match?

  • what

    u all internet guys r just bastrds..if u dont wanna see austin vs hhh or if anyone of u get dissopointed then dont ever click on austin retuen news..u all r just ash holes..i wanna see hhh vs austin with dx back..if anyone of u dissappointed go nd scuk my chock..

  • Ted Gal

    no! no! no! no! no! no!

  • Chris Zaia

    what is all this talk about “oh this match will be so great and the promos will be awesome!” Since when did wrestling become about the promos. do your research before you say that.

  • chris

    okay how about this…bare with me and listen to this idea…
    Go with the storyline similar to vince and trumps match with umaga and lashley. only this time its vinces man facing hunters man for control of the company. KEEP IN MIND THIS IS WM30!!! THIS HAS TO BE THE BIGGEST OF ALL TIME. THEY NEED A MAJOR STORYLINE TO SELL PPVS! In short, the 2 will fued until somewhere around December January…steph decides enough is enough…the two have to settle this. Hunter has a big ego and WANTS the company. so he picks the undefeated taker. Vince…(do you see where this is going yet?) picks the texas rattlesnake. the two had some of the best battles i.e. unforgiven 99 I believe was the year. this truly puts takers streak on the edge like never before, you want the undefeated record. but you also want Austin to open a can of whoopass one more time. wwe fans would be in a craze. this in my opionion is the the best way to sell ppvs for wm30. this is the match that will get ppl talking. put that along with a possible rock and brock, cena Daniel bryan or orton or punk or whatever combo you chose. shield vs wyatt family…boom, best wm ever!
    just a theory

  • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

    IF STEVE AUSTIN WON’T WORK MAYBE THE ROCK VS TRIPLE H HEEL!
