-- Steve Austin recently spoke with Zoo Magazine in the UK about the release of his new DVD movie Recoil and said that he could return to the ring for a match in the right situation. "If the right situation, the right opponent and the right circumstances came up for the WWE, then it would certainly be something worth considering," he said. "Could I have another match or two? Yeah. Physically I am in really good shape right now. People seem to think I am half-dead!... In my movies, I do some pretty hellacious fight scenes that, maybe, a normal person couldn't do. So my physicality is fine, my neck is fine after having it all fused-up. I am not pitching for another match but if it was a win-win situation for everybody, then absolutely, I would consider it."
-- The replay of WWE's live SmackDown from last week did a 1.52 (1.5) cable rating, with 2.30 million viewers. That number is up slightly from the 1.50 (1.5) cable rating and 2.25 million that the live airing on Tuesday did, and also up slightly from the replay rating of the previous SmackDown replay in February. The show ranked #8 among cable shows in overall viewers, with the first hour ranking #1 among males 18 – 49 and males 12 – 34. The overall show was #2 for males 12 – 34.
