Should “Stone Cold” Steve Austin come out of retirement?

stone-cold-steve-austinThere has been speculation for years that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin would come out of retirement and have one more match. At WrestleMania would be the perfect calling card for him to have that one last match. At 48 years of age should he really. Think about this, in 2003 his body was telling him to call it a day and he finally did at WrestleMania 19 against The Rock. Why should he really come out of retirement? It wouldn’t be for the money because we all know he is set.

Has the Survivor Series PPV lost its magic?

Survivor Series 2This year’s WWE Survivor Series PPV goes down the 24th of November. There have been so many changes to the wrestling business and the way it has gone from the golden ages to the attitude era and now to the PG era. A couple years ago it was believed to be dead and almost taken off the calendar of the WWE. With the fourth biggest PPV that WWE has (WrestleMania, Summerslam, Royal Rumble) only a matter of two weeks away.

Let’s go back and take a look at the history of this event.

Why does the WWE Universe hate the Miz?

MizI’ll be the first one to tell you that I cannot stand The Miz no more than anyone else. If you think about it, why do we dislike him so much? Is it the fact that is cocky, annoying, and obnoxious? He has been pushed down our throats? If you look at his history then maybe you will have a different opinion on “the awesome one”

Now everyone knows about how he got onto WWE through “the real world” reality show on MTV then onto tough enough back in 2004. He did not win the show but a job in the land of the giants. Now The Miz didn’t pay his Indy dues but the WWE one no doubt.

He worked dark matches in 2005 then made his WWE TV debut on SmackDown in 2006 as a host. Now he was a good host no doubt. He has that talking, walking attitude where he is was over confident.

Mandatory.com created a meme gallery of The Rock from ‘Escape to Witch Mountain’

Rock 4

Mandatory created a meme gallery of The Rock in a three-shot sequence from ‘Escape to Witch Mountain’. The movie was a box office success but it also paved the way for a fantastic meme. It features three screenshots and follows this formula: Dwayne Johnson says something, the girl in the back of the car responds with something that shocks him, Johnson looks back in shock. Who knew something so simple could be funny in so many ways.

In an interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine, Hulk Hogan sheds light on original plans for his match with The Rock at Wrestlemania X-8 in 2002.

“Out of respect, I go down there (to Miami), and there’s me and The Rock  and his dad Rocky Johnson, and Pat Patterson,” said Hogan. “The Rock  starts telling me that we’re gonna lock up, and do this and do that,  then start getting some heat on me, and so on. So he talked through the  whole match, and I was listening. I respect him, and it kinda made  sense, but I’d never done that before. Then they go, ‘Okay, let’s have  the match here.’ I said, ‘Whoa! You’re talking about me taking bumps in  this ring, with no people? I’ll get hurt, and if I fall wrong one time,  then my career is over.’ I’ve got to have the energy of the crowd, so  that when I go down, I go down to the mat hard. So instead, we just  walked through the match.”

Hitting the Ropes: Rock Solid or Rock Bottom?

HTR_3

I shake my head every time I read that someone inside the WWE locker room isn’t thrilled with the Rock headlining another Wrestlemania.  I guess it’s possible that these are false rumors, that everybody is excited about the upcoming show in New York City.  But as the old saying goes, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”  Even going back to Miami last year there have been rumblings that Dwayne Johnson’s comeback has been met with resistance.

The WWE Locker Room’s Reaction To The Rock:

“Rock is a great talent, but nobody’s taking pictures and asking for autographs. He’s a wonderful talent, he’s one of us, we respect him [and] he respects what we do. We just go about it and try to take advantage of the situation. He’s one of those that’s recognizable in many realms, and we appreciate him for coming back and still loving what we do and doing what he calls home.”
