[WWE News] Vince asked Steve Austin to wrestle a “retirement” match at WM25 but it appears that won’t be happening now. They pitched a couple of ideas to him but Austin has always been leery towards the idea due to his neck and other health issues. Rock was asked last year if he would come back and do a match with Austin but he shot the idea down. Hogan has been vocal about wanting a match with Austin, but those close to the situation say Austin wants no part of Hogan. I suppose the only other real possability would be a “street fight” type deal with Vince but they don’t have time to build towards anything now. . [reported by Mike Aldren]
