WWE icon Stone Cold Steve Austin should get Undertaker role after WrestleMania return, says Booker T

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T claims Stone Cold Steve Austin should have the same role The Undertaker had in the last few years.

Austin shocked the world of professional wrestling when he came out of retirement after 19 years at WrestleMania 38 and defeated Kevin Owens in an impromptu match.

The six-time world champion admitted he is open for a role at next year's WrestleMania 39 but Booker T believes he should have an even bigger part in WWE after his surprise comeback.

The five-time WCW Champion claims The Texas Rattlesnake should be booked like Undertaker was at the twilight of his career when he made sporadic appearances in major events.

That would allow WWE to provide the fans with some legendary moments that would attract a wider audience.

That is why the two-time Hall of Famer insists Austin should consider making an appearance in the Saudi Arabia shows as well as WWE's scheduled event in Cardiff on September 3 at the Principality Stadium.

Booker T said on his Hall of Fame podcast: "I wouldn’t say just a WrestleMania guy or anything like that.

“Star power is everything. Saudi Arabia, to have Stone Cold on that card right there? Boom, I’m sure the people over there would love it, man.

"To see Austin in Cardiff, Wales? Man, that would be awesome because I’m sure the guys over there haven’t seen him in such a long time.

"To see ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin live, up close, in person – that would just be a moment for those guys just to see Steve Austin.

“Forget about him in the ring. To see him, take a photo with him, shake a hand, tell a story, whatever it may be, that crowd would get its money’s worth if Steve was a part of it.

"Steve may be the new Undertaker – the guy that [shows] up to pop the crowd, give the crowd that moment that they’re gonna remember for the rest of their lives, and me personally, I think that’s a damn good position to be in.”

Booker T added: "He’s the last one left, man. I mean, I don’t think Shawn Michaels is gonna be the guy to fill that role or anything like that.

"I can’t think of any other names besides myself and that’s just not something that I really want to do at all.

"Bring me a match and a check and I’m all down for that, but as far as being that guy, I can’t think of too many people outside Stone Cold Steve Austin who could take it and make it something totally special when you see it on the marquee that fans go, ‘That right there. I gotta see it,’ just because. No other reason, I just gotta see it.

"So definitely, he could be that guy who slips into the Undertaker role and be that three-time-a-year guy to come out and just do something.”
