Steve Austin vs. LA Knight was reportedly pitched for WWE Wrestlemania 39
As previously noted, WWE reportedly made Steve Austin a “huge money” offer for a match against undisputed WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns for Wrestlemania 39 and there was apparently a pitch for Austin to have a match against Brock Lesnar as well.
It appears that at least a third pitch was made for an Austin match at Wrestlemania 39. Fightful Select noted the following…
“Of late, we’ve heard that a very in-shape Steve Austin was made additional pitches to get on the show, but not for necessarily marquee matches. LA Knight was a name rumored online, and we can confirm that’s at least been pitched. However, nobody close to Austin or in WWE have been able to verify that it’s happening as of yet.”
A fan-made video for Austin vs. LA Knight has been floating around on social media. Whether Austin has another match or not, he is expected to do some promotional work for WWE 2K in the near future.
