30 minutes ago

Stone ColdSteve Austin won’t be returning to WWE action for one last cash-grab, and that’s the bottom line, because he said so in an interview with TheWrap. The Rattlesnake’s reasoning for refusing to pull a Goldberg (that’s the other guy pictured above, ironically receiving a devastating Stone Cold Stunner from Austin back in both of their heydays) is pretty respectable advice for any athlete that goes out on top. “It’s just really because I’ve been there and I did it on the very highest level,” the Attitude Era icon, podcaster, Ipa brewer and »
