WWE: Steve Austin says he will not be returning at Wrestlemania 32


The question of who is wrestling Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania has apparently whittled down a couple of the biggest names.

Steve Austin on Twitter said, "You can take my name off the rumor mill as a Brock Lesnar opponent at WrestleMania 32.  Bullshit reporting."

With Lesnar vs. Undertaker no longer one of the scheduled main events at WrestleMania, the question became who would be the new opponents for both at Texas Stadium next year.

Austin had said a few months ago that it wasn't going to happen.  He would likely have been the biggest drawing potential opponent, but hasn't wrestled in 11 1/2 years and has given no indication he was going to ever wrestle again.  His doing a podcast with Lesnar on 10/19 fueled some speculation, but he appears to have shut the door on it again.

Sources close to the situation have also told us that Dwayne Johnson is currently not scheduled to be wrestling Lesnar on the show.
