The immense profit could allow Vince McMahon to bring some fresh and promising talent to the roster as well as superstars from the past.
However, it doesn’t seem likely that The Rock and Austin will be rejoining for a long run any time soon.
According to Ringside News, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer insists that the WWE legends’ schedule and fitness would never allow them to sign a long-term deal.
Meltzer said: “I don’t see them wrestling. I mean Austin, I don’t believe Austin will ever wrestle again I mean it’s been too many years and he’s 53. I don’t see Steve wrestling.
“The last time I saw him, which was a while ago, he was really big and he was in good shape. But he’s 53 and the last time he did something physical he got hurt. I don’t see it.
“The Rock is the same thing. The last time he did a match he got hurt real bad and he hasn’t done a serious match since. Now he’s 46 and he’s got that big movie career.
“Could I see either of them doing a spot at a WrestleMania? Of course. A run? No. A match? I mean, one match for Rock possibly but look if Rock was going to do a match it would have been this year.
“It would have been the Ronda match because that’s the match they wanted. When Rock didn’t do that match I got to think that he’s done, unless you’re doing another nine-second match or something like that. But serious match I don’t see there’s too much money in him.”
The Rock’s last full match took place at WrestleMania 29 where he wrestled a 45-minute bout against John Cena.
Around the 15th minute, The People’s Champion tore his adductor and the top of his quad completely off his pelvis at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey before losing the WWE Championship to Cena.
The 10-time world champion’s last ever match took place at WrestleMania 32 where he destroyed Erick Rowan in just six seconds before teaming up with Cena in a brawl against The Wyatt Family.
Austin retired from in-ring competition after WrestleMania 19 where he lost to The Rock in an emotional match at Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington.
