Jericho has revealed a conversation with Austin years ago about coming back and why he believes Kevin Owens is the perfect opponent for Stone Cold. He also mentioned that Austin is going to look like a killer. And he said that Austin once told me that he wants to come back for two matches.

“He’s the best guy for the job, he’s one of the only guys for the job,” Jericho said. “First of all, if Steve does come back, he’s going to look like a killer. He’s going to be so big and so jacked up, he’s not going to come back and just be there wearing a shirt and shorts. He always told me, ‘If I go back, I don’t want to go back as anything less than before. And if I go back, there’s going to be so much training going on that I don’t want to come back just for one [match].’ So maybe he wants to come back for two [matches], I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t want to come back at all, but if he does, who’s he going to work? (H/t Wrestling Inc)

“If Steve comes in, the best guy for the job is Kevin Owens because Kevin will be able to sell it on the mic, he can go toe-to-toe with Steve, he’s got a comedy element to him that Steve has as well and will probably really have if he comes back because he can use that to his advantage, which Kevin will sell perfectly,” Jericho said. “Can’t do that with Roman Reigns. And Kevin will be able to work with Steve exactly the way Steve needs and can work. Which is just meat and potatoes, that’s Kevin Owens. Kevin can do some flying and flipping, but he’d probably rather just punch and kick you in the corner, and that’s Steve’s whole offensive plan.
