From the main newsboard:


The latest issue of Power Slam features an interview with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and the WWE Hall of Famer is asked if he envisages himself returning to the squared circle for one more match.

"Awww, man. Look, I'll tell you this much: If I was going to do anything in WWE, I'd do something with Punk," he responded.

"Like I said, I love what he's doing, and there's a lot of parallels. I'm not saying it's definitely going to happen, but if I could cherry-pick my opponent, and all the stars lined up, I'd love to work a program with him."

Austin wants it, Punk wants it, and The 'E would be absolutely stupid not to do it

My question to you guys is: will it happen?

I can only speculate but is Austin's neck strong enough to put on a match?

I'd imagine the neck wouldn't be as much of an issue if he were in there with a guy as talented as Punk who could "take care of Austin" so to speak.

Hmmm, not sure if it's going to happen though.

I would love to see it, and it would be bigger than rock/cena imo. but i doubt it will happen.

I see it happening.
It's a Mania match for sure, or a math they could use to boost Summerslam buys/ratings. But I'd hazard a guess that it'll happen at Mania, and I'll say WM 29 at Toronto.

I would prefer HHH vs CM Punk at mania.

But ths too would be awesome

I wish it were that easy. The trick is getting the green light from WWE wellness. They might both really want do it, and the suits might be game, but if there is a potential for major injury my bet is that they wont let it happen due to insurance issues/general safety of Austin. I really, really hope it does happen though. My all time favorite vs my current favorite. :D

For me it would be the 'Main Event' at Wrestlemania but again, it's a big IF that he'll get cleared to compete!!

It HAS to happen but only at WM any other PPPV wouldnt do justice to EPIC this match would be.

they have bret hart in carefully crafted matches and he a stroke think it could work if they avoid bodyslams and the like make more of a brawl rather then a match aload of suplexs just wwe would have to limit the moves punk could do to austin or vice versa cos he may not be as strong as he once was lets face it wont be a scientific pure wrestling classic but the atomasphere for the match alone will make up for that

I can definitely see this match happening at WM 29, as opposed to WM 28. Regardless of which one i think most of us would agree it's a 'Mania match. Perhaps the best way to generate the most interest in the match would be an angle where Punk addresses the WWE Universe post WM 28 to state how underwhelmed he was by Cena vs The Rock at WM 28. Then going on to say how he knows the perfect match to top it, Punk vs Austin at WM 29, issuing a challenge to the rattlesnake which is rejected by Austin at first.

Have a few back and forth promo's (Punk interupting a beer bash, Austin offering Punk beers and Punk slapping them out of his hand), Austin special guest referees a Punk match maybe and ends up inadvertedly screwing him HHH style followed by Punk verbally berating Austin post match. Mix in a few physical confrontations and have Austin win the match thanks to interference from Cena (who lets hope is a heel by then!). Cena gets a stunner for interfering, and then a GTS from Punk (to keep Punk over despite the loss)

Speculation is amazing, because even though i just spewed what is more than likely pure garbage, it's just speculation. =D

When austin calls for the beers, Punk should replace the beer with pepsi. That will make Austin go nuts on Punk

Wow. You just wrote, like, a year long storyline in 2 paragraphs. Impressive.

The OP is right. The WWE would be absolutely stupid not to put on this match. It has $$$$ written alll over it. And also, I also agree that any other ppv other than WM would NOT do this match justice. So 'mania' is definitely the place to have this, but not the question is which one. I hope its next year in Miami.
