– WWE Hall of FamerÂ Jim RossÂ believes his longtime friend Steve Austin will compete in one more match â€“ but it wonâ€™t be at WrestleMania 28.
â€œI think he still has the itch to do one more match,â€Â Ross said Wednesday during an appearance on 1560 The Game.Â â€œHis health is betterâ€”thereâ€™s certain things he may not be able to do physically â€”but heâ€™s in great shape.â€
â€œA year ago, I would have said there would be no more Austin matches. Iâ€™ve loosened my stance on that a little bit now. I think somewhere down the roadâ€”I donâ€™t think itâ€™s WrestleMania 28 because those attractions are pretty well in place with Rock and Cenaâ€”it would not surprise me to see Austin back for a farewell, one-time off situation.â€

J.R. also talked aboutÂ John Cenaâ€™s appearance on â€œPiperâ€™s Pitâ€ Monday where WWE Hall of Famer â€œRowdyâ€ Roddy Piper grilled Cena on the increasingly hostile reaction from WWE Universe members.
â€œIâ€™m not sure what they accomplished at the end of the segment, but I listened to every damn word of it,â€ Ross said. â€œSo, they captivated my attention, but it was like the crazy uncle trying to reason with the defiant nephew about Cenaâ€™s reaction to the crowd.â€
Ross said he is often asked whether Cena should turn heel. He doesnâ€™t think itâ€™s necessary since Cena is a heel to one group of fans, but garners strong support from another.
