The pro wrestling industry has been clamoring for a dream match between CM Punk and WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin for quite some time now and we could be getting just that in the near future. According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, there were several people in the WWE pushing for a CM Punk vs. Stone Cold Match down the line, so much so that Punk already had discussions about the dream match.
It was also noted on the report that a lot of people in the promotion are hopeful and optimistic that the match could finally happen as many ideas have already been floated around between CM Punk and WWE and the ideal situation would be for Punk and Austin to meet and go over ideas for the match, but the two sides still need to get through a lot before the matchup can happen. People close to Steve Austin said they have not heard him mention he has any personal issues with Punk, so it is unclear what they need to get through.
CM Punk returned to the WWE at Survivor Series: WarGames from Chicago, while Steve Austin came out of retirement at WrestleMania 38, when he faced Kevin Owens in Singles action.
