More On Steve Austin & His “One More WWE Match” Deal
The Fightful report also reveals that the WWE and Stone Cold were “far apart” when it came to a deal, at one point. With that said, they are hoping Austin will work with them more.
Interestingly enough, the report also states that before Vince McMahon retired, he too, wanted Austin in the ring for another bout. Will fans see SCSA back in that squared circle, soon?
That’s hard to say. Although, speculation around an SCSA in-ring return among fans has increased lately.
Especially after Austin posted a video of himself working out, on social media. He looked in tremendous shape, and “ready” to compete.
Simply put, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is one of the GOATs of professional wrestling. He was with the WWE from 1995 to 2003, but left in-ring competition and retired early due to injury.
Over the years he was with the company, he “did it all”. WWE Champion (six times), Intercontinental Champion (two times), WWE Tag Champ (four times), 1996 King of the Ring, and Royal Rumble winner in 1997, 1998, and 2001.
Meanwhile, there’s news about Stone Cold’s WM 38 opponent, Kevin Owens. Sounds like he suffered an injury recently.
Kevin Owens Injury Update
Reports have surfaced stating that KO suffered an MCL sprain this past Sunday night. It occurred during a Madison, Wisconsin WWE house show.
The bad news is, Kevin will likely miss out on the 2022 Survivor Series. The good news is that it seems as if Owens may not be out of action for that long, and could return just in time for the 2023 Royal Rumble.
Kevin Owens’ Projected MCL Sprain Recovery Timeline
As per Sports Injury Physio, this type of injury generally heals in about four to six weeks. If an athlete suffers a severe ligament tear, the recovery time could be 12 weeks+.
It’s undeniable that Kevin Owens was on a roll right before his injury. It’s clear that Triple H has some big plans for his Prize Fighter.
Here’s hoping his recovery goes smoothly and quickly. If Owens can be ready to dive back into action during the Road to WrestleMania season, it would be perfect timing.
What’s next for Kevin Owens? Only time will tell.
