Whether it's professional wrestling or any other sport, many of us are skeptical about athletes actually retiring. Michael Jordan came back, Michael Phelps is coming back for the 2016 olympics, Roger Clemens came out of retirement a few times and in the world of boxing it feels like it's almost mandatory that you retire and come back at least once. So, I'm sure there are many out there thinking that it's just a matter of time before "Stone Cold" Steve Austin steps into the ring again.
We all know the expression, "never say never" but as far as Austin wrestling again goes, it sure does seem like "never" is the right word to use. On a recent appearance on Opie Radio Austin addressed that very question and his answer sure does seem emphatic:
"I’ve got no business in a wrestling ring; I had a good time doing that job. You know, the last match I had was in 2003, and it took me about three years to get it out of my system because I loved that business – that was what I wanted to do with my life, and boy, after about three years of hunting, fishing, drinking, and making bad decisions, I decided that it was time to move to L.A. and start doing some work out there… I’m done; I’ve got nothing to prove."
You can watch video of his answer above, as well as him addressing the issues of concussions and his legendary frugality.
