WWE Survivor Series 2011: 10 Reasons Steve Austin Shouldn't Return to the Ring

Stone Cold Steve Austin is considered to be one of the most popular wrestlers of the attitude era. Fans loved watching him get revenge on the WWE boss, Vince McMahon, week after week.  Not only did Austin humiliate his boss, but he would also put everyone else on the roster and make a mockery of them. Yes, he loved to drink beer, raise his middle finger at all who annoyed him and he loved to raise hell.

During his wresting career, Austin held 19 championships and is a six time WWF champion.  Steve Austin had some of the best feuds in the attitude era with the like of Triple H, The Rock and Vince McMahon.

Austin and Triple H eventually went on to become a tag team called the Two-Man Power Trip and went on to win the WWE tag team Champions. They prominently feuded with the brother of destruction, The Undertaker and Kane during their time as a team. The team broke up when Triple H tore his quadriceps.  Stone Cold also won the 1996 King of the Ring tournament and the Royal Rumbles in 1997-98 and 2001.

However, Austin was forced to retire from wrestling in 2003 due to nagging knee and back injuries. He continued to appear on Raw in a non-wrestling role, but had some issues with the creative team.

In 2011 Austin returned to WWE to host the re-launch of the reality series Tough Enough and was also the special guest GM of the 13 June edition of Raw.
