-- Responding to recent rumors suggesting that he's readying himself for a return to the ring at WWE's WrestleMania 39 next year, Stone Cold Steve Austin released a video over the weekend explaining why he has been working out:
People have been speculating, 'Hey Steve, what are you doing? What are you training for? Are you training for an event?' Speculate what you want for. I just simply looked in the mirror and realized I look like sh*t, so I called my diet coach up. And my macros are currently, give or take, roughly around 2650 calories, 300-320 grams of protein, 150 grams of carbs on a regular day, will spike at 420 on a load up. I still drink beer on Friday nights. Get three Broken Skull IPAs, and that's pretty much it. I'm probably, as far as body weight goes, sub-232, the leanest I've been in forever. Anyway, that's the bottom line, I'm out. I just got tired of looking like -- when I looked in the mirror, I looked like sh*t. I got tired of looking like sh*t, so I'm taking actions to do something about it. I gotta go. Catch you down the road.
