If Saudi's somehow paid enough to get Steve Austin back on one match,Which story and wrestler would you like to see him involve with?

I know it is very hard for something like that to happen but never say never.

Austin always cared about his image and booking more than anything so I don't think he would comeback expect if it is really a huge story or feud that is worth it.

Which wrestler and story would you like to see Austin's comeback get?

The only one in the company even worthy of being in the same ring with him right now is Dream.

Austin vs. Dream would be crazy and it would be a massive rub for him.

I don't think Austin would be soiling his legacy with that match.

Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, John Cena - either one of these three in the top slot

For full time talent, matches that appeal to me are

Stone Cold vs Bray Wyatt
Stone Cold vs Daniel Bryan
Stone Cold vs Samoa Joe
Stone Cold vs Sami Zayn


My top pick is Brock Lesnar though

If you're desperate to see an old guy in the ring that can't take bumps, WWE already has you covered!

I'm sure Vince has already offered him HUGE money to come back and put Roman over on countless occasions.

Austin vs Samoa Joe would be awesome. Even if its just a 5 minute match.

re: If Stone Cold came back for one of the Saudi's shows, which wrestler would you want him to face?

HBK came out of retirement and it was a shock. And they paid him millions i'm sure. But - Saudi made sense. Could Vince have paid HBK to come back at a big mania match instead, and help sell mania more? Maybe. But HBK's star power isn't all that huge. Him coming out of retirement to face a Daniel Bryan or AJ Styles - or even Taker yet again - it wouldn't have "sold that many tickets". HBK was a big star, but never as big as the biggest ones, and there was no real huge money to make in his return. So him coming back for Saudi for a huge paycheque made sense. HBK vs Bryan or AJ is big, but it's not "biggest mania match ever" big.
Goldberg? Same idea. He had his big return already - there's no big desire to have him come back to WWE tv these days. Big paycheque for Saudi makes sense.

Austin? If Austin agreed to one more match - you build a whole wrestleamania - or 2 or 3 - around it, and make it the biggest match/mania of all time. A bit like they did when Rock returned at WM27-28. Austin's star power is still insanely huge in a WWE world. As much as Saudi's would pay for him - there's immensely more money to be made for Austin to return to a big mania moment instead. It's ALSO better for his legacy - as fans loved Rock for returning at mania. They hated HBK for returning with a cheap Saudi match out of nowhere.

So to me - there's 0 chance Austin returns for Saudi. He's too big. If he does return - it'll be to main event a WM in a match worthy of Rock/Cena buildup/feud around WM27-28. (and no - i don't think it'll happen).

Finally - Austin is doing really good financially. He doesn't need the money.

I'd have Corbin go over him dirty. Working the neck and knee the entire match.
