The preliminary groundwork was laid for Brock Lesnar vs. Steve Austin at Wrestlemania 32 during Austin’s Stone Cold” Podcast Live! interview with Paul Heyman that aired on the WWE Network Monday night after Raw.
Towards the end of the interview, Heyman got the chance to ask Austin some questions. One of them was if Austin would like to face Lesnar at Wrestlemania 32.
Austin stated if he was going to fight Brock Lesnar, he’d “beat his ass.” He told Paul he knew as well as he did. Austin said he didn’t say he was going to but he was telling him what would happen. Heyman asked where better to have it than Texas in front of 100,000 people? Austin said he’d have to think about it but the person that would really have to think about it would be Brock Lesnar.
