While WWE has apparently been persuading “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to make an in-ring return at WrestleMania 28, many within the company feel that there is “less than a 50% chance” of that happening, according to a previous report.
A new article with Steve Austin posted by the UK Sun reveals that if he had to hand-pick one name to get into the ring with, it would be CM Punk.
“I think Punk is a great guy,” the former WWE Champion wrote. “I’d say he looks up to me for what I did in the ring back in the day – and I look up to him for what he is doing now. I’d say it’s a case of mutual respect.
He added, “I hear the stories and if the stars aligned and all things worked out to benefit us all – the WWE, myself and Punk – I’d say that he is the guy I’d pick to face. I’m sure I could get another match out of this carcass of mine.”
