"I think he still has the itch to do one more match," Ross said Wednesday during an appearance on 1560 The Game. "His health is better—there's certain things he may not be able to do physically —but he's in great shape."
"A year ago, I would have said there would be no more Austin matches. I've loosened my stance on that a little bit now. I think somewhere down the road—I don't think it's WrestleMania 28 because those attractions are pretty well in place with Rock and Cena—it would not surprise me to see Austin back for a farewell, one-time off situation."
J.R. also talked about the John Cena's appearance on "Piper's Pit" Monday where WWE Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper asked Cena tough questions about the recent increasingly negative reaction from WWE fans.
"I'm not sure what they accomplished at the end of the segment, but I listened to every damn word of it," Ross said. "So, they captivated my attention, but it was like the crazy uncle trying to reason with the defiant nephew about Cena's reaction to the crowd."
Ross said he is often asked whether Cena should turn heel. He doesn't think it's necessary since Cena is a heel to one group of fans, but garners strong support from another group.
