I know this has been a rumor for awhile now but 1bob brought it up again today as part of where BPP is going (Smackdown or Raw) and they mentioned Austion possibly returning within the month. What are everyone's thoughts on this and how factual do ya'll think this may be?

As others have said in the past, he already entered himself in the Rumble. Vince is desperate, Hogan's not coming back, No Sold Berg is getting close to Dingbat Warrior's stupidity level, so that leaves only Austin as available. Plus he's already under contract, so its not like it will cost Vince extra money to bring him in.

Did you say 1bob? Then I belive it to be NOT factual. I don't think he will be back any time soon, if ever. Wrestlemania at the earliest if does come back.

I think Austin will eventually come back once he gets his life in order. Vince can't let the trainwreck go on forever. I think WM at the earliest also.

Yeah, 1bob is pretty much making junk up to make people think his site is important.

It's always going to be a possibility, especially with the way ratings and everything are right now, that Austin is a week away from being back. But until someone reports that Austin is IN THE BUILDING at a WWE event, any talk about Austin being back can be filed under BS.

"Hogan's not coming back"

...huh. Awfully sure about that. And personally, I hope the stale-as-all-Hell, one-dimensional, oft-injured aging moron never comes back. And that has NOTHING to do with the wife-beating thing-the guy has lost his passion for it, his character is DEAD, and he's a stroppy little bitch.

Personally I hope not, realistically he'll be back someday.

I don't care for his character anymore, and I already get enough of the "What!'s" on a weekly basis and he's not been on the show in months!

They'd have to do some sort of serious make over for me to even be remotely interested in him on my TV.

Have we heard any follow-up on his trial? Last I remember seeing was the link (from Slash) to a San Antonio Express article dated 10/09/2002, which indicated his trial would be delayed for 30 days.

Did I miss an update?

Well, with the ratings down to 3.1, I certainly hope he'll be back soon--then again, I've always liked the Stone Cold character.

DAMN, I hope not not not...his character has run it's course. I was really hating him towards the end of things, what with the uncooperativeness, no-selling, hogging the spotlight, and his degenerated mic-skills...
And don't get me started on walking out, like a spoiled baby who wasnt going to get his way again, or beating his wife(I wish he was in jail, being some bubba's bitch for that).
After hearing, and agreeing that the WWE needs to move ahead, and build NEW stars for the FUTURE, I thought many more would feel that bringing this idiot back would be one of the worse things that Vince could do.
I would be more than happy to NEVER see him on my tv again(Except for maybe on an episode of COPS, or VH1'S Where are they now: The Wrestling Episode)...

Steve... who?

Oh, that one guy who showed us the art of putting on a five-star match (at Backlash) with The Undertaker, and the one who cut all those wonderful promos where he paused after every line for the fans to shout, “What?”

Don't want him back. Don't need him back. Steve Austin would do more to make me turn off WWE television than he would to attract new fans.

I agree that we don't need the Stone Cold who left Raw, but:

Heel Stone Cold rawks the house. I could be down with that.

I agree. I think the time off would rekindle Stone's fire and I would welcome him back.

You know, Corporate Stone Cold was actually a very good look for Steve, the few minutes he wore it prior to stunning Vince.

Another idea. "No, I'm not back. I'm not ready to be back. I have to work on myself for a while, so that I'm happy with myself. I've got a wonderful man helping me, counseling me, if you will, so that I can see the forest beyond the trees and realize that my long layoff wasn't a bad thing, it's..."

If he's healthy and ready to work, in all senses of the term, there are a TON of ways WWE COULD use him that would be entertaining even to those who are so tired of him they could scream, whether playing directly off those feelings or not. But:

1) Are they smart enough, at this point?
2) The LAST thing the fed needs is another drop in, drop out character like Michaels is or Foley was, and like Steve was being toward the end. If he's back, they need to have him on regularly (not four-walling like 2001, of course-- just regularly around).

please God... no more Stone Cold.
I can't bear the WHAT?!?!?!s anymore. You think HHH is bad? You think the Undertaker is bad? How do you think HE is going to be?
The WWE needs NEW talent for the future. Stone Cold would set that back. You can't go back to the older talent for a ratings boost now that you need the younger guys to step up!

If necrophilias fair game then having a wife beater in the ranks has gotta be good for some free publicity. Vince would take a willing Austin back in a heartbeat.
