Yes, but it would be a waste. Three was enough.

If they do have this match most likely would take place at WM 30

Nah, no reason to do it in this case. It's The Rock vs Steve Austin, the greatest rivalry in the history of the industry, they can wrestle now, they can wrestle 20 years from now. It's big.

Fans were literally begging for another match when Rock sarcastically teased it in his HOF promo:



But if you put Rock/HBK or Rock/Sting, I will take it above Rock/Austin simply because it's first time ever match, and that's what Rock came to do in his current run.

It would obviously sell. But would people honestly want to see the MATCH? I think I'd be pretty disappointed in the quality after witnessing the amazing matches from WM 17 and 19.

The promos would be great but the match would be not good.Rock was very rusty at Wrestelmania and Austin has not wrstled in a decade.
