- WWE.com has a new interview up with Steve Austin to promote the All Stars video game. Here are some highlights:

WWE.com: One of the most interesting features in WWE All Stars is the “Fantasy Warfare” mode, which pits your character against CM Punk. Is that a rivalry you wish you could’ve had in real life?

AUSTIN: Damn right it is. CM Punk is one of my favorite WWE Superstars right now. I like what he brings to the ring, I like his mental game. I think a rivalry between “Stone Cold” and CM Punk would have been a hell of a spectacle and a lot of entertainment.

WWE.com: It’s been about eight years since you retired from active competition. Is there a Superstar who is carrying on your legacy today?

AUSTIN: You know, the closest comparison you could make would be Randy Orton, but, man, when someone wants to make comparisons to me, it’s just like making a comparison to Michael Jordan. For a period of time, I was the hottest person on two feet that had ever been in the business. I set all kinds of records from attendance to merchandise to ratings records. When someone can beat that, then I’ll say, "Yep, they beat me." But no one’s done that

Funny. Even as a Cena hater I have to disagree with this. Punk is no where near the level of those three guys.

The feud would probably make him bigger than Cena if WWE didn't *censored* it up. Watch Punk & Raven's feud. It would be like a watered down version of that, but still good.

If he was pushed that far, he could be. What makes Cena better than him in any way? I like both men, but on the microphone or in the ring, Punk dominates.

Promos for Punk and Austin would be epic.

Rock and Cena so far - BORING!

Based on what? Punk is a better wrestler than all 3, and this is coming from a Stone Cold fan as well. Being popular I guess is the level you are talking about, which is the WWE's problem.

Amen to that man.

Punk's in ring skills > Rock and Cena's in ring skills combined together. Period.

This. The GTS is Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the FU, and did you see Rock doing the People's Elbow & The Rock Bottom on RAW on Monday? He just doesn't do it like he used to :/
