Top 5 Potential Steve Austin Opponents
5. vs. Randy Orton It makes sense Orton would want to add another to his “Legend Killer” list and Austin would be good for it. Of course, a fight between them can be wild, Austin sill hanging in an ugly brawl but handling the hard moves Orton can make. Orton, for his part, can mix it up with teasing various RKO’s before a good selling of the Stunner. Either way it falls out, Orton does well with veterans and that can work well with Austin and a good way to build Orton more with fans. 4. vs. The Undertaker Yeah, the Streak being broken cracked much of Taker’s heat. But he’s still Undertaker, still a major respected face in the company and he and Austin have put on great matches in the past. Maybe slower but it would be notable to watch them go at it today, a fine brawl and a good battle to make you remember the wide admiration for both guys in the company and a Mania battle would be a good way to set both legacies in stone.
3. vs. the Rock Just one more time. Both of these guys put on great matches together and even with the passing of years, they carry a crowd together on the mic like few before or since. They can still argue about who was the bigger star of the Attitude era and a final match to settle that would be a fun affair and, while slower, both guys giving it their best to rock an arena and a great reminder of the magic of the Attitude era.
2. vs. HHH They never had a big Mania showdown, which is rather surprising. Sure, they had wild fights but Austin was on the downslide when HHH began his rise to main event stardom so they didn’t mix as much as they could have. It could be a fun battle still as HHH knows to bring his A-game to big matches and he and Austin wanting the major fight they never really had before. Put it on a big stage like Mania and it can be something truly wild and get you going, a fine tribute to both careers and a reminder of the era that made wrestling shine so well.
1. vs. John Cena The promo battle alone would be great and the match itself much better than most would expect. Say what you will about Cena, he’s great in major matches like this and his conditioning can allow him to help carry Austin more. They can do some great brawling all over the place and yet some good in-ring action as well, carrying the fans along and making this a memorable battle. These are the two biggest stars of their respective eras and two guys who carry massive fan heat around them so a showdown would be pretty epic, one of the last “dream matches” around and help cement Cena’s own legacy while still letting Austin’s shine.
