Wrestlemania 39 will be a two-night affair in the WWE needing bigger names on the card to sell things out. As per the earlier reports, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin could be one of the legends to be booked on the show in a wrestling capacity. He is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle and going by his popularity, it makes all the sense to have him onboard.

Austin came back to action in April 2022 during the 38th edition of Wrestlemania. Fans were elated to see him dragging back The Attitude Era in this modern age to have a successful outing. One of the most influential pro wrestlers of all time is currently rumored to be a part of Wrestlemania 39. It appears that there have already been discussions for him to compete in a match, for real.
