Last year, Stone Cold Steve Austin competed in a No Hold Barred match against Kevin Owens in the main event on night one of WrestleMania 38. That was Steve Austin’s first match since retired in 2003. The match received huge praise from the WWE management and fans.
Therefore, WWE offered Steve Austin another match at WrestleMania 39 against Brock Lesnar. However, Austin refused WWE’s offer.
Recently, multiple news outlets reported that Steve Austin is scheduled to compete against LA Knight at WrestleMania 39. They claimed that the news was first reported by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer.
In a response to a tweet, Dave Meltzer stated that the news is completely fake.
