"Stone Cold" Steve Austin

Steve Austin addressed a potential WrestleMania 32 match against Brock Lesnar on the latest episode of his Steve Austin Show podcast.

Regarding the exchange between Austin and Paul Heyman at the end of his recent WWE Network podcast, Austin said he didn’t know what Heyman was going to say and that he went into promo mode because it was right for the Stone Cold character. However, Austin said he did not mean to raise the expectation of the fans and his intention was not to set up a match with Lesnar.

Austin added that he and Brock would be doing different things going forward and said he wanted to make it clear that he was not trying to build to a WrestleMania 32 match with Lesnar.
