Stone Cold and John Cena played a huge role in WWE becoming a global brand. Stone Cold and John Cena fans can be seen all over the globe.
Stone Cold Steve Austin recently was in Out of Character podcast where he talked about John Cena. Stone Cold feels if he had faced John Cena it would have been something great.
Working with him would have been a real highlight, and I’ve had a bunch of highlights. It would have been a real special thing. There is something about John. People are so invested in his matches. He’s a very special talent. It would have been great to have a match with him. Will it ever happen? No. I think very highly of John and I love him,”
When Stone Cold was asked about if he would return to face John Cena
“No, not really. Names have always been tossed around in conversation and stuff like that. I said I was never going to really wrestle again, unless, because you never say never, unless the stars aligned properly. They did to work with KO [Kevin Owens] in Dallas, so we did that. It wasn’t really put out, ‘it’s going to be a highly competitive match.’ You weren’t expecting us to go 30 minutes. I think we exceeded the expectations and it worked for that time and place. I’m good.”
