Given how the WWE is making a real habit of bringing in legendary and iconic wrestlers for runs with the company, talk will forever persist about one of, if not the the biggest star of the 1990's eventually lacing up his boots, and strapping on those iconic knee pads once again. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin hasn't wrestled in a WWE ring for over a decade, although he has given out a few 'Stunners' along the way. WWE fans are used to seeing stars like The Rock, Brock Lesnar and Batista make returns to the company to wrestle again, but the one they really want is Steve Austin.
To hear that glass shatter one more time and see Austin strut his way down the ramp would be a fantastic sight, not least on a major stage like WrestleMania. Unfortunately though, whilst there will always be speculation about a potential return to the ring for Austin, the harsh reality is that it will likely never happen. We got a glimpse of just how popular Austin still is with WWE fans earlier this year, when he took part in that iconic opening segment at WrestleMania XXX with Hulk Hogan and The Rock, which was a moment that made the hairs stand on the back of our necks.
But while we may very well see Hogan and/or The Rock step in the ring for a match again, the chances of Austin doing the same just don't seem likely. For the variety of reasons that suggest Austin could return, there are more factors to suggest the opposite. So, here are the top 10 reasons why, as unfortunate as it is, Steve Austin won't be wrestling with the WWE ever again.
10 The WWE Has Moved On
9 The Roster Is Already Loaded With Talent
8 He's Been Inactive For Too Long
7 Plenty of Legends have returned
6 His Legacy is already secured
5 His Age
4 He's busy with other projects
3 There's no need for him to come back
2 There's no suitable opponent for him
1 His Health
Above each and every reason why "Stone Cold" Steve Austin will never wrestle again, his health is by far the biggest reason of all. Austin actually admitted towards the end of his in-ring career that he was still wrestling against medical advice, with doctors warning him that one violent or wrongly-executed move could have resulted in him being paralyzed or even killed. Why on earth would Austin risk his health to step back into the ring for a return that might not even be a success? Sure, there might be a part of Steve Austin that misses performing in the ring, but when you factor in a lot of logic, it just doesn't look like it's going to happen.
