Stone Cold talks WrestleMania 30, CM Punk, and the WWE’s direction

Stone Cold Steve Austin had admitted that he would be interested in wrestling one more match, but would have to commit “120 percent” to doing it.

Speaking on the Busted Open radio show, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that he is healthy enough to wrestle again, but the situation would have to be right.

 

“Oh I’m healthy enough. My knees coming around just fine, it’s better than it’s ever been because I’ve been doing my do diligence on my rehab. I’ve got two new ligaments. Everything else is pain free. I’m still in shape been working out harder than I’ve ever worked out. But here’s the deal. When you’re gonna try to commit to do a Wrestlemania 30, you’re looking really at, at least a two to three month commitment, if not four. So you know you’re talking about, taking everything else of the table. To do it the way I would do it, to do it the way Stone Cold Steve Austin would do it, at a 120 percent. Because to go out there and to try to perform at 85-90 percent because you didn’t prep enough. That would be bogus, that would be BS that would be letting the crowd down. And that would be representing the Stone Cold Steve Austin that I know and love to a degree that is not acceptable.”

“So once you throw a legitimate, real deal offer down on the table and say let’s talk, then we’ll talk. But until then, conjecture…I’m not lobbying for a match. If the starts lined up, then it would happen, but it’s going to take a lot for those stars to line up. No sense in beating a dead horse. To think about it is one thing, to actually go out, come to terms and go through the business prep and actually accomplish a match, it’s a whole different ballgame and a major process.”

 

He also praised CM Punk, who has been lobbying for a match with Austin for a long time, and whether a match between the two of them would live up to the hype.

 

“Oh it definitely could. It brings a lot to the table from a verbal standpoint with his well thought out promos, the way in which he conducts his business. I like his product in the ring. I like to see him turn it up more in the mainstream. I like to see a little more physicality, laying in stuff a little more. I like to see him be a little bit more aggressive. That’s just off the top of my head. Other than that, I like everything about the cat.”

 

Austin also spoke about Triple H’s growing influence on WWE, as well as the current direction of the company.

 

“Well now they’re just starting to turn the corner with some of these new cats they brought in. So they’re picking it up a little bit. I mean there are a lot of guys still walking on eggshells in that territory or in that locker room. I kind of gotten away from watching it, to a large degree in recent past. Especially since they jacked it up to a three hour Monday Night Raw. That’s tough to fulfill three hours worth of content and keep it interesting and not stale. I think they are finally heading back in the right direction though to bottom line it.”

“I think as long as Vince is around and hopefully he is around for a long time, it’s gonna be his baby cause he’s the one that bought the territory from his dad and made it into what it is, a global phenomenon. But I know that when I speak about Triple H, I know that he comes from the same school I come from. He’s still knows he’s got to entertain a wide variety of age, you know the demo. And there is something for everybody in the show now. And it was kind of a little bit more adult orientated maybe when I was in there but I think Triple H is gonna bring a serious nature to the business from his presentation or how he views the business still. I think it’s going to be a combination of everybody involved. Because obviously right now, it’s still Vince’s baby and it always will be.”

  1. Who would you like to see Austin Wrestle at Mania 30 Andrew?

    If you couldn’t say Punk or Bryan that is ?

  2. Austin-Punk is a all-time classic waiting to happen. Though one more Austin-Rock match wouldn’t be a bad thing, those two always had great chemistry and never had a bad match.
