Steve Austin on JR/UFC, and a return to a WWE ring

Sep 30, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

On whether Jim Ross has anything to offer as a potential UFC employee: “I do, just because the guy has 34 years of experience of storylines, angles, knowledge and booking and just how things work in our world. There are parallels. MMA’s a shoot, yes, but I think he can help in some capacity, some way, somehow. He can give an idea here and there, a little creative, whether it’s a shoot or a work, he can lend some experienced opinions on that.”

On if he’ll ever return to the ring for WWE: “Man, I tell you what, the longer and longer I wait, the more time I go down the road, when you really think about it, it may be fun to do, but what’s on the other side of that? It took me three years to get the business out of my system, a long withdrawal. It’s been 11 years since I’ve been in the ring. I know a lot of fans would love to see it. But what if it’s not what it should have been or could have been? I don’t want to be 90 percent. It would take a three or four months of a UFC style training camp to pull it off, get the timing and the right wind. It would take at least three months of training, period, and then, what next? I was there, did it at the very highest level. I had a great time. I took the business to the highest level it’s ever been before. Hopefully someone will take it to an even higher level. The chances are pretty damn slim to be quite frank about it.”
