Recently in a interview Stone Cold Steve Austin stated that may be he will be coming back to WWE as a wrestler. He told that he missed WWE a lot that's why he always wanted to come back. Not as a wrestler but in many aspects he was attached to WWE. He was the judge in Tough Enough. He recently came RAW many times. He was the refree in match of Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler.
He said that John Cena is his successor. In present time he is the face of WWE.
Just as he was, but he didn't neglected the presence of emerging star such as Ryback, C M Punk, Alberto Del Rio.
